Hi. I worked with you all in the mid 80's. Do you remember "Murder at the Howard Johnsons?" I remember working w two actors specifically. One was a real estate agent and the other was a young man...kinda reminded me of a young Brando in looks. Don't remember their names. Might you remember me? Also, do you have any photos of those productions? So much fun working with you all. Thanks.
I worked w you all back in the mid-80's. Was so much fun! Remember "Murder at the Howard Johnsons?" Ha! Wish I had some photos of the time I spent acting with you all. I can't remember the actor dude's name that was in a few of them w me. Kinda young Brando look to him. And I was in a romantic comedy w the real estate woman that sold me my house back in da day. Racking my brains to remember her name. I was unusual.

Anyway hope you all are well. Can't believe it's been over 30 years! I continued w acting and directing when I moved to Chicago BTW.
How much are the tickets for tomorrow's afternoon performance in Middleboro?
Madame Louisa's Mysterium will be pulling up to the Mitchell Club (well in my dreams) for the Psychic Faire -TOP's Fundraiser next Saturday. Hope to see you there!
I attended the performance of Cheaters last night. It was my first time at Theatre One and I was so impressed. By the production, the staff, the actors......what a thoroughly enjoyable evening! Lots of good entertainment and laughter to take the chill off a cold night. I will be looking forward to the next play!

Our Story

Info as well on upcoming productions.

Theatre One Productions was created in 1982 in Middleboro and became a non profit Theatre Company in 1984. We performed 13 shows a season, as we had our own space, 7 of which were from our Children’s Theatre Workshop. We lost our space in 1988 and we went on the road in Lakeville and Plymouth producing Dinner Theatre, but after a while this developed into a enormous physical and financial drain on the company so we took a break. We came back in 2006 and now Theatre One offers 3 productions a year, along with a Fund Raiser and works out of the Alley Theatre directly behind the Burtwood School of Performing Arts, 133 Center Street Middleboro Ma. FREE parking at the Middleboro Town Hall parking lot. We hold auditions when needed. Season runs January to April, this year to March. Gen note, we DO NOT TAKE reservation UNLESS you have more than 4 in your party. If you have more than 4 in your party you may email [email protected], message us on Facebook or call 1-774-213-5193. Our evening productions start at 7:30pm on Friday and Saturdays. Sundays 2pm, with doors opening 1/2 hour prior to show . All tickets sold at our productions are CASH ONLY at the door $18 for Seniors and students. Gen $20. New Works Festival ALL TICKETS $15.

On Friday January 22,2021 we reopen our season that was put on hold because of the Virus, with Steven Dietz’s Comedy of Suspicion, PRIVATE EYES, in which nothing is ever quite what it seems.. . The audience itself plays the role of detective in this hilarious “relationship thriller” about love, lust and the power of deception. “It’s a play within a play within a play within a play within a psychiatrist’s office- a Chinese box full of tricks and surprises.” The Chicago Tribune.

On Saturday, March 13,2021 from 11am to 3pm, we will be holding our annual Psychic Faire Fundraiser, postponed from Oct 2020, at The Mitchell Memorial Club 29 Elm St Middleboro. $20 for 15 min readings with a $2 cover charge, cash only at the door. Featuring the most talented Tarot and Palm Readers, Astrologists and Mediums on the South Coast and the Cape, to help us raise funds to support our season.
