Stage Coach Players Presents:

This January, Stage Coach Players will be performing Wicked, Hamilton and The Book of Mormon.  That sounds incredible doesn’t it, and wouldn’t it be great to see those great musicals at Stage Coach Theatre?  Unfortunately none of those shows will be performed in their entirety but songs from each along with two dozen others WILL be performed during Stage Coach Players’ Taking On Broadway.


Taking On Broadway is a cabaret featuring songs from musicals that have yet to grace the Stage Coach stage.  Show dates are January 18 – 20 with the cabaret directed by Nika Morton, Cortney Jo Newby and Sara Pajor with accompanists Tyler Kielb, Heather Krupa and Abi Mogge.  The trio of Morton, Newby and Pajor directed last years’ cabaret Tangled In Tinsel.


In addition to Morton, Newby and Pajor, the cast includes Nick Bantz-Beaty, Shannon Becker, Steve Becker, Natalie Boone, Deb Brubaker, Terri Crain Goodman, Elenia Dokos, Scotty Fleetwood, Leigh Foulk, Bryan Fowler, Kevin Gum, Jeff Hall, Jon Hawkins, Mary Hawkins, Jeff Heider, Heather Heinrich, Paula Howlett, Dorcas Keating, Edward Keating, Gregor King, Jan Lam, Karissa Lam, Grace Leopardo, Kristin Madden, Jisela Marquez, Ryan Morton, Sarah Morton, Gracie Pincombe, Hillary Rutten, Piper Schiola Williams, Bernie Schuneman, Hannah Squires, Josie Squires, Melissa Squires, Renee Tracy, Dave Watson and Hannah Wood.


A fund-raiser for Stage Coach, Taking On Broadway is an original show with songs chosen to fit the voices and strengths of the cast members.  The show features over 44 songs from over 40 shows that have never been performed by Stage Coach in its 72 seasons in DeKalb.  Some are recent Broadway smashes, while others are community theatre standards that have simply not graced its stage.  In addition, the show will highlight songs from the 2019 season at Stage Coach.


Performances for Taking On Broadway are January 18th and 19th with a curtain time of 7:30, along with a Sunday matinee on January 20th with a curtain time of 2:00.  Tickets are $20 each or $18 for seniors and children age 13 and under.  To purchase tickets, visit our online website at  You can also call the Stage Coach box office which opens Sunday, January 13th.  The phone number is 815-758-1940.

Stage Coach presents – A Christmas Chaos

Stage Coach Players invites you to spend a portion of your holiday when they present the spoof, A Christmas Chaos by Michael Wehrli.  Chaos is the name of the game in this take on A Christmas Carol when a travelling theatre troupe doesn’t arrive to perform its rousing version of the Charles Dickens classic, so Stage Coach Theatre must quickly put together their own rendition.

Gloria Dennison directs A Christmas Chaos, the first show she’s directed since Monty Python’s Spamalot in 2015.  The cast features Todd Pope as Scrooge (Gilligan’s Island: The Musical), Roberta Maxfield (A Christmas Carol: The Musical), Wendy Tritt (California Suite), and Sue Mullins in her first production with Stage Coach Players.

Rounding out the cast are Deb Brubaker, Terri Goodman, Teresa Haish, Kathy Hewitt, John Linderoth, Abbey Lippert, Ephraim Ndicu, Joseph Pontarelli, Christian Romero, Sarah Romero, Piper Schiola-Williams, Aaron Schyver, Jessica Seipp, Brad Shortridge, Riley Shortridge, Vincent Virtue, Olivia Woodruff and
Julia Woodward.

In years past, Stage Coach has produced A Charlie Brown ChristmasMiracle on 34th Street and of course A Christmas Carol.  This year Stage Coach chose a lesser known holiday play.  When asked what drew her to this show, Dennison said that the play, “Brings together my wacky sense of humor and my love of the holidays.”

And A Christmas Chaos is wacky.  They must put together in just a few hours a presentable version of A Christmas Carol using anything and everything they can find for the set, the props and costumes.  This leads the theatre to use their imaginations.  Dennison added that “The cast has surprised me by the consistent use of their collect imaginations.”

Abbey Lippert, who plays Fred, among other characters said rehearsing for the play helped her get into the holiday spirit.  “Being in this show has made it a lot easier for me to get the good vibes started.  I usually find it hard to get into the holidays until we get the first big snow.”

Performances for A Christmas Chaos are November 29th through November 31st and December 6th through December 8th with a curtain time of 7:30, along with Sunday matinees on December 1st and 7th with a curtain time of 2:00.  Tickets are $15 each or $13 for seniors and children age 13 and under.  To purchase tickets, visit our online website at  You can also call the Stage Coach box office which opens Sunday, November 24th.  The phone number is 815-758-1940.
