"The Trouble With Cats"

By Gary Ray Stapp

Directed by Tom Sousa

SYNOPSIS

An experienced house-sitting couple gets more than they bargain for when a Minnesota homeowner intentionally double-books her lakefront domicile through HouseSitters.com in order to ensure she can get away from it all for an entire month. When the second house-sitting couple arrives, there is an immediate clash between generations. In one corner, there are the upper middle-class and socially-skilled Julians from New Jersey, and in the opposite corner, the anti-materialist and free-spirited vegans from North Carolina who have decided they don’t even need a last name. Personalities collide even further when the Bombays from next door add their own twist to being neighborly with either a constant barrage of trivial pursuits or an onslaught of candid crankiness. And if that weren’t enough for the Julians to deal with, they get another surprise... the uninhabitable master suite is in the midst of being actively remodeled by the Cheshires, a trio of sisters, two of whom are skilled laborers with personal problems of their own and the other who is a chocoholic ditz. Without a head of household, there is little rest or relaxation for anyone... except for maybe the cat... if the house sitters could only find the elusive little creature.

Our History

 The North River Theater building was originally built as a one room Norwell schoolhouse in 1865. If you look closely, you can still see the pattern of plugged holes in the floor, marking the locations of student chairs and desks. In March of 1926, The Town of Norwell voted at its Annual Town Meeting, to grant the building and land at 513 River St., then known as Norwell Schoolyard District #7, to the local “Church Hill Improvement Association” (CHIA), the ancestral group of “North River Theater, Inc.” The first official meeting took place on the premises in February, 1927. In January 1954, The building was transferred to the “North River Community Club, Inc.” Previously known as CHIA. The present name “North River Theater, Inc.” Was created and recorded in September, 1996. Through all those years a vast array of Plays, Shows, Dinners, and other events have been held in this wonderful “Gem in the Woods”. With an emphasis on quality entertainment!
