Additional Information

It is 1944 and and Matt Friedman, a middle-aged accountant from St. Louis is waiting in a deserted Victorian boathouse on the Talley place in Lebanon, Missouri. He has arrived, nervous but determined, to woo and win Miss Sally Talley, the shy, spinster daughter of the family.

Totally honest, and delightfully funny, Matt refuses to accept Sally's rebuffs, correctly sensing her fears that her family will never approve their marriage. And… she has a secret. That’s okay, so does he. It’s a night for sharing secrets.

Matt charms his way past Sally’s fears and, gradually, awakens her to the possibilities of a life together. After all, they are kindred spirits — two ”lame ducks” who, all right, might be broken. But together, they are whole.

Featuring Ensemble member Katie Maringer. Rrecommended for middle school and older

Subarea:Rockford East State

The main entrance to Rockford University is at 5050 East State Street, however it is much easier to reach the theater from the back entrance of the campus (right). Taking the back entrance off of Turner Street, the first building to come into view is the Clark Arts Center (which contains the Cheek Theatre), with public parking lots on the left.
