Buffalo Theatre Ensemble inaugurates its 35th anniversary season this fall with the in-person premiere of “Stove Toucher,” an autobiographical show written and performed by ensemble member Kurt Naebig.
A coming-of-age drama set during the 1970s, “Stove Toucher” chronicles Naebig’s experiences as a teenage skateboarding phenom who went on to open a skateboard shop while still in his teens. It runs Nov. 26 to Dec. 19.
That’s followed by a revival of Naperville playwright Mat Smart’s “Naperville” (Jan. 27-Feb. 27), a dramedy about loss, community and perseverance directed by Naebig.
The season concludes with Richard Bean’s comedy “One Man, Two Guvnors” (April 28-May 29). Based on “The Servant of Two Masters,” an 18th century commedia dell’arte by Carlo Goldoni, the play is about an unemployed musician working for two employers — a gangster and an aristocrat — neither of whom know their employee is serving two masters.
Performances take place at the McAninch Arts Center, College of DuPage, 425 Fawell Blvd., Glen Ellyn.
Season subscriptions and flex passes are available. Single tickets are available for $42 beginning Sept. 24. See atthemac.org or call (630) 942-4000.
