A Piece of My Heart
Directed by Cayndis (Cat) Adams
This is a powerful, true drama of six women who went to Vietnam: five nurses and a country western singer booked by an unscrupulous agent to entertain the troops. The play portrays each young woman before, during, and after her tour in the war-torn nation and ends as each leaves a personal token at the memorial wall in Washington.

Love, Sex, and the IRS
Directed by Jackie Glover
Co-Director - Raquel Pina-Holmstrom
Jon Trachtman and Leslie Arthur are out of work musicians who room together in New York City. To save money, Jon has been filing tax returns listing the pair as married. The day of reckoning comes when the Internal Revenue Service informs the “couple” they’re going to be investigated. Leslie masquerades as a housewife, aided by Jon’s fiancée, Kate. Complicating matters further, Leslie and Kate are having an affair behind Jon’s back, Jon’s mother drops in unexpectedly to meet her son’s fiancée, and Leslie’s ex-girlfriend shows up demanding to know why Leslie has changed and won’t see her anymore. Like a cross between I Love Lucy and Some Like it Hot.

We need directors! If you are a director looking to put a show on stage, either your own original work, or an existing title, contact the Board of Directors for more information.
We are currently in the process of significant renovations, and parts of the theatre are under construction. Please excuse our mess while we improve our theatre for the community and you, our patrons.
Help Support Our Community Theatre
In order to provide the services described above, we depend on the community for the bulk of our support, both financial and staffing. While much of our income is from ticket and ad sales, these two alone are rarely enough to see us through a season by themselves. Therefore, we regularly have to supplement our income via corporate sponsorships, grants, profit sharing programs, and charitable donations from the community.
Sponsorship of a Birdcage Theatre production is a visible demonstration of your commitment to the cultural and economic development of our community. Choosing to sponsor a show can complement your company's marketing and community involvement strategies and provide a unique opportunity for employee or client entertainment. We are deeply grateful for the support of our Show Sponsors and are glad to recognize their support in the following ways:
Publicity Benefits: Season Brochure: Your business name and/or logo will be included in our season brochure.
Other Advertising: Your logo will be featured on our show posters. Your logo will also be included on our website.
Play Programs: Your business logo or name will be printed on the front cover of your play’s program. A complimentary half-page thank you advertisement will also be placed inside the program.
Curtain Speech: You will be thanked publicly for your support before every performance of your sponsored play.
Tickets: Reward yourself, clients or employees with complimentary tickets to the show you sponsor.
