Welcome to Indian Valley Theatre
Laughing until you cry. . . crying because it’s all you can do. . . tapping your feet and singing from your seat. . . What is this? Broadway, off broadway, off-off broadway? Actually, it’s how volunteer community actors from Indian Valley Theatre have been thrilling audiences from Sandwich and area towns for more than three decades – and the kind of shtick they do best.

A Christmas Chaos
Gadzooks! The Royal Shakespeare Company hasn’t arrived as promised to perform their stirring rendition of “A Christmas Carol.” So our intrepid band of hapless actors and technicians must put together their own production in only seven hours! What a pity that they are not quite up to the task, even though they give it their all. Have you ever experienced backstage mayhem? Well, you haven’t seen anything yet! The play focuses on these poor but dedicated thespians doing their best while chaos is all around them: two kids fighting over who gets to play Tiny Tim, a confused actor who thinks she’s in another show, a haughty lead actor, one actor playing both Bob and Mrs. Cratchit, an out-of-control director, thrown together props and costumes, ridiculous scenery, and tons of flubs and confusion.
