2017-18 Performance Schedule

Love/Sick by John Cariani

October 5, 6 and 7 • 7:30 pm
October 8 • 2:00 pm

Love/Sick is a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays. Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this 80-minute romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, Love/Sick is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.  Mature subject matter.


From Z-A: A jumbled  Alphabet Journey - Created in A Workshop led by Emma Atuire and Grace Rempp

The Pirates of Penzance by Arthur Sullivan and W.S. Gilbert

February 1, 2 and 3 • 7:30 pm
February 4 • 2:00 pm

Gilbert and Sullivan’s most popular operetta, The Pirates of Penzance, is a rollicking, delightfully funny tale of a band of soft-tempered pirates, beautiful maidens, lily-livered policemen and a Pirate King.  Through plot twists and turns it, naturally, all comes out right in the end. Beloved since its premiere in 1879, The Pirates of Penzance (or The Slave of Duty) is a delightful farce of a classic that is fun for all ages.

The Life and Times of Tulsa Lovechild
by Greg Owens

April 26, 27 and 28 • 7:30 pm
April 29 • 2:00 pm

Just like life, this offbeat romantic comedy is full of random weirdness and suprising beauty. Follow the adventures of the eponymous Tulsa Lovechild as she journeys cross-counrty in a rental car to dump her hippie mother's ashes in the parking lot of the motel where Tulsa was born. Mature language and subject matter.
