The Truth About Tillie
Bert and Gloria have always adored Tillie, their neighbor down the hall.  She's sweet! She's unassuming! And, she's...acting oh-so-suspiciously! Something's up with Tillie, but to tell you the truth, there might be some things we'd rather not know!  And therein lies the mystery!

Box Office: 561-272-1281 x 4
Join us for five clever matinee performances filled with heart-felt moments, unexpected twists, and lots and lots of laughter!  In every show, you'll see a series of short vignettes.  Each sketch poses a different problem or situation for the characters.  Some stories may bring a smile and some may bring a tear, but every act is unforgettable, and here's why:  the audience is invited to talk to the characters on stage and help them figure out how to solve their problems!  After each act, we'll bring a microphone into the audience, and 'talk-show style', you can choose to make a comment, give an insight, or ask a question.  Of course, you can also choose to simply sit back and enjoy the comments of those around you. It's always fun, it's always intriguing, and it's always a great afternoon of entertainment!                             It's upbeat. It's heartwarming. It's Studio Theatre!
