    Assassins
    ASSASSINS 
    Feb. 23 - March 11, 2018
    Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim  
    Book by John Weidman

    Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman examine the motivations of the men and women who have killed - or attempted to kill - U.S. Presidents throughout history.  John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley and others meet and interact in this revue-style musical.  Bold, original, disturbing and alarmingly funny.  The music varies to reflect the popular music of the eras depicted.


    hand to god
    HAND TO GOD
    April 20 - May 6, 2018
    By Robert Askins

    Be not deceived: The devil is lurking at the Christian Puppet Ministry in Cypress, Texas. And his name is … Tyrone. He may look like an innocent sock puppet, but when he infiltrates the angst-ridden church youth group and takes possession of Jason’s arm, all hell breaks loose! If BOOK OF MORMON and AVENUE Q had a baby, this would be it!

    it shoulda been you
    IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU
    June 15 - July 1, 2018
    Music by Barbara Anselmi
    Book & Lyrics by Brian Hargrove

    This charming, funny and original new musical invites you to a wedding day that you’ll never forget, where anything that can go wrong does, and love pops up in mysterious places. The bride is Jewish. The groom is Catholic. Her mother is a force of nature. His mother is a tempest in a cocktail shaker. And when the bride’s ex-boyfriend crashes the party, the perfect wedding starts to unravel. A 90-minute laugh-riot!

    its only a play
    IT’S ONLY A PLAY
    August 10 - 26, 2018
    By Terrence McNally

    It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit.  With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his best friend, a television star, his fledgling producer, his erratic leading lady, his wunderkind director, an infamous drama critic, and a wide-eyes coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan.  It’s raucous, ridiculous and tender — reminds us why there’s no business like show business.

    it is done
    IT IS DONE
    October 5 - 21, 2018
    By Alex Goldberg

    Inside a desolate bar in the middle of nowhere, bartender Hand and his only customers, Jonas, a man on the run, and Ruby, a mysterious woman on a mission, settle in for a long evening to ride out a windstorm. Trapped together, seemingly innocent conversation escalates into life or death struggles as past secrets are revealed. A great Halloween treat! For mature audiences only.

    By Charles M. Schulz

    When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees among everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but this proves to be a frustrating endeavor. When an attempt to restore the proper holiday spirit with a forlorn little Christmas fir tree fails, he needs Linus’ help to discover the real meaning of Christmas.

    The Santaland Diaries
    December 15 - 24, 2017
    By David Sedaris & Joe Mantello

    When a down-on-his luck wannabe actor arrives in New York City, the only employment he can find is at Macy’s department store—working in Santaland for the holiday season, as a reluctant, but relentlessly cheerful, elf. Newly christened “Crumpet”, played by Jesse R. Gephart, shares his observations of the mayhem in front of and behind the scenes during one chaotic December, from aggressive parents and drunken Santas, to flirtatious actors and poor hygiene. For mature audiences only.
