SOPHIE’S LIGHT weaves a seamless story of fact and fiction, as The State became the first theater in the area to present Vaudeville performers. The drama backstage in October 1928 is led by a tragic ghost, while the energy of prohibition bubbles on the streets of our waterfront town. The superb cast and crew of our area will delight audiences with their professional talents.

Proceeds from the performances of SOPHIE’S LIGHT will be donated to the Bicentennial Commission to help celebrate this historic event in their historic year. We thank you for your support of this exciting experience.

Featured act Brent Terhune is a stand-up comedian, writer and podcaster. You can find his pro-wrestling podcast, “WrestleMania,” on iTunes as well as his comedy album, “Mr. Turkey.” Brent is a writer for the nationally-syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show and you can hear his comedy on Sirius/XM channel 99. He is also the writer and illustrator of the Uncle Frank Comic Strip.

Working the road nonstop since his 21st birthday, headliner Dave Landau has grown into a true comedic juggernaut. Finding himself much in-demand among audiences and club owners due to his deadpan demeanor and those jokes — my God, those jokes — that fluidly fly forth with breakneck pacing and perfect timing. Dave, it can be said with all due respect, is a throwback to another era of comedy. The entertaining everyman. Innocent enough at first blush; as he states his case, you begin to see where you and he have quite a bit in common. A wife, a house. An odd sense of calm in an increasingly crazy world. You’re on a tour of the familiar and prosaic, with Dave Landau as the bus driver.

Then he drops his foot on the accelerator. And things start to get wild. You see, Dave Landau might appear to be just like you, but he’s not really. His mind goes to places that angels would fear to tread, and he has no problem telling you about it. The mark of a great comedian, it is said, is the ability to find jokes where others would find tears. Dave find jokes everywhere; with his own foibles and faults, to his family, to pop culture and the state of the world today.

Cutting his comedic teeth as a teenager in Detroit in the Second City’s Conservatory, Dave Landau has risen to become one of the most in-demand headliners working today. He’s appeared on Comedy Central’s “Live At Gotham” and was a finalist on season 8 of “Last Comic Standing.” He’s become a regular on the nationally-syndicated “Bob & Tom” radio show, and was honored as one of the top 21 club comics of today at HBO’s Las Vegas Comedy Festival.

In this satirical take on Westerns, crafty railroad worker Bart (Cleavon Little) becomes the first black sheriff of Rock Ridge, a frontier town about to be destroyed in order to make way for a new railroad. Initially, the people of Rock Ridge harbor a racial bias toward their new leader. However, they warm to him after realizing that Bart and his perpetually drunk gunfighter friend (Gene Wilder) are the only defense against a wave of thugs sent to rid the town of its population.
