 "If It's Monday, This Must Be Murder" by Pat Cook
June 4-7 & 12-14, 2020 

Directed by Les Thomas

Harry Monday is a throwback to the private detectives of 1940's black and white movies. Only Harry is more gum-on-your-shoe than gumshoe. He's posing as a golf-playing psychiatrist at the Shady Meadows Country Club. "A place where old polyester goes to die," says Harry, after club members start dropping like divots on the duffer's course. And the club members aren't much saner than he is: a prima donna club president, an astrological moon child, a Wall Street ad man, and someone claiming to be the twin of a missing club member. They're all dropping red herrings in their wake. Throw in a naive supervisor; a sultry, hard-hearted dame and a surly police sergeant and you have to figure If It's Monday, This Must Be Murder!

 2020-2021 Season

Celebrating 30 Years of Live Theatre!

RELEASE: MARCH 16, 2020 -

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak and at the recommendation of Anderson County Emergency Management Director, J.D. Mersman; Garnett City Manager Chris Weiner; the Kansas Dept. of Health & Environment; and the Centers for Disease Control, our production of “2 Across” will not take place as originally planned.
 The recommendation to postpone or cancel all gatherings of 50 or more people directly affects our production. Out of an abundance of caution and concern for our ticket holders, cast, crew and volunteers, the Chamber Players Board of Directors has indefinitely postponed the production of “2 Across”.
  It is too early to determine what the ultimate fate of “2 Across” may be, but any updates will be available on our website, Facebook page, and via email communication with our newsletter subscribers.
  Thank you for your support of The Chamber Players. Please stay safe and we’ll see you on the other side of this developing situation.

"2 Across" by Jerry Mayer

March 19-22 & 27-29, 2020, Directed by Krystal Donaldson

Two strangers, a man and a woman, board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 a.m. They're alone in the car, each is married, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She's an organized, sensible psychologist. He's a free-spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, "Crosswords are a metaphor for life, those who finish, succeed, those who don't, fail." Now he vows to finish. Why?  He's a competitor and she happens to be lovely. This starts an eighty-minute ride described by critics as "Hilarious," "Witty," "Romantic," "Poignant," and "Wonderfully entertaining." Two opposites in an enclosed space, attacking each other's values but also being swayed and intrigued by them. They each have serious life problems that the other helps solve. Their trip is filled with unpredictable, but believable, surprises, even a passionate kissing embrace or two. As the train ride ends, it's obvious each of them has been changed for the better.
