It is 1885, during the Serbo-Bulgarian war. Wealthy young Raina Petkoff impatiently awaits the return of her fiancé Sergius Saranoff, hero of the recent Bulgarian victory over the Serbs. But her head is turned by the arrival of Bluntschli, a Swiss mercenary fighting for Serbia, who hides in her bedroom after the battle and unheroically prefers chocolate to bullets. Meanwhile Sergius flirts with Louka, the Petkoff’s bold and ambitious servant girl, much to the disapproval of her fiancé, the faithful servant Nicola. Will Raina follow her parents’ wishes and settle for Sergius and the status quo or choose her “chocolate cream soldier”?
The Hamburg Players bring us Bernard Shaw’s anti-romantic comedy that pokes fun at pretensions, love and the glorification of war.

Truvy’s Beauty Parlor in a small Louisiana town is where the women gather to share their gossip and troubles while being pampered by warm-hearted Truvy and her young assistant, Annelle. How can M’Lynn deal with her diabetic daughter, Shelby, who is determined to live her dream of marrying and having a family, despite the risk to her health? How is the unlikely friendship between grouchy and eccentric widow Ouiser and life-affirming Clairee held together? How does Truvy cope with the escapades of the men in her family, while Annelle transforms from shy newcomer, to party girl and then Christian revivalist? With laughter and tears, with determination of steel, and the power of true friendship.
The Hamburg Players present this comedy-drama, which was an acclaimed 1989 film with Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Parton and Shirley MacLaine. Come along and share the fortunes of our “steel magnolias”.

After Robert, a once brilliant mathematician, dies, his daughter Catherine is worried that she may have inherited not only her father's genius but also his mental illness. Older sister Claire is convinced she has and wants to take her to New York to be looked after. Meanwhile, Robert's former student Hal is searching through Robert's papers. He is trying to find something of his mentor's worth saving. Are the brilliant, cutting-edge calculations he finds really Catherine's, as she claims, or are they Robert's? Can Catherine prove the proof is hers?
