Hovey Players is delighted to share a new twist on our traditional season announcement!

In 2023-2024, we piloted a new hybrid approach, where we independently produce two full productions and partner with other arts organizations to produce additional shows and programming at the theater. This model was very successful in bringing a variety of stories, art, and performance to our community, and will continue with this model in the coming year as well.

The idea for this new model was partially born out of Hovey's currently limited financial and human capital capacity - but also a recognition of how many companies are looking for space to rehearse or produce their work. If you are looking for a space to rent or know of an organization that might be interested, please contact us at And if you'd like to volunteer with or donate to Hovey, please check our Stand With Hovey campaign!

Ruby runs a small-town gun company that aims to protect women by helping them protect themselves. With products like The Bridesmaid, The Babysitter and The Mallwalker, each of the company's guns is named after a woman who used a gun and saved a life--more often than not, her own. When an elderly secretary at the local high school confronts a threat in her office with six bullets, Ruby responds by naming her latest gun after the reluctant hero: “The Secretary.” But as production begins on The Secretary, guns start going off all around town--and no one’s pulling the trigger. THE SECRETARY is an offbeat comedy about safety, survival, and guns for a world that’s up in arms.

An aspiring young director rampages against the art created by his mother’s generation. A nubile young actress wrestles with an aging Hollywood star for the affections of a renowned novelist. And everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this irreverent, contemporary, and very funny remix of Chekhov’s The Seagull, Aaron Posner stages a timeless battle between young and old, past and present, in search of the true meaning of it all. Original songs composed by James Sugg draw the famously subtextual inner thoughts of Chekhov’s characters explicitly to the surface. STUPID FUCKING BIRD will tickle, tantalize, and incite you to consider how art, love, and revolution fuel your own pursuit of happiness.
