For the final production of its 50th anniversary season, the Westminster Community Theater has chosen a play whose vintage makes WCT look like the new kid on the block. Philip Barry's "The Philadelphia Story" first appeared during that brief period of...

Jester Theater Company has announced its 2013-14 season lineup, which includes the classic play "Harvey," adapted into a Jimmy Stewart film. Here's what's in store from the troupe, which as its name indicates, specializes in comedy. • Sarasota...
