The Seven Keys to Baldpate
Directed by Colline Laninga
Humanities Building
Admission $5 at door, $3 students

A comedy by George M. Cohan.  Baldpate is a summer hotel, normally closed in the winter.  When a writer bets the owner he can write a work in twenty-four hours if left alone there, the owner opens the closed hotel for him.  Also showing up are a gun-toting man, a pretty young newspaper reporter with whom the hero falls in love at first sight, an adventuress,  some politicians and a railroad magnate looking to make a secret deal.  Shots and screams galore seem to interrupt Magee’s work.  Or are they simply the story that Magee is writing?  Call 914-251-6591 for information.
