NORA SWAN… MURDER MOST PERSONAL!
August 23, 24, & 25 -AND- October 4, 5 & 6
World War II shattered countless lives in countless ways. Most on the battlefield, but then there were the invisible ones… those who had to do the covert work in order to unearth the secrets. Richard Swan was one of those. He was murdered in what was set to look like a car accident, in order to keep him from revealing one of those secrets. His wife, Nora, was in the car with him. Nora survived, but was left blind as a result.
Our story opens in 1951 as Richard’s friend Dempsey informs Nora that she is, in fact, still a target and he’s narrowed it down to where he’s certain her enemy is actually one of her closest friends… BUT, WHO?
October 25th, 26th, and 27th
A GHOSTLY DRAMA… PERFECT FOR HALLOWEEN!
Everett Hammond passes away, a very wealthy man, in possession of the family’s ancestral home… Willowmere! He leaves the entire estate to his niece, Violet and two nephews, Wesley and Edmund. Their intent is to quickly sell everything but, the Will states that they may not sell Willowmere until they read the diary of their ancestor who built it. They are drawn into a story filled with treasure, death and the American Revolution. And, reaching the Journal’s climax, they witness for themselves the collision of past and present when the spirit of their founder’s child appears and all they can do is watch in total disbelief.
CHASING SANTA, A Christmas Musical
December 13, 14 & 15 -AND- December 20, 21 & 22
A MUSICAL COMEDY FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY, JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS:
CHASE STORYMAN has dreamed of meeting SANTA since he was a little boy and now that he’s an anchorman for YMI NEWS he lands an exclusive interview at the North Pole with SANTA himself.
But, his co-anchor, LILAC HELLOWITZ won’t stand for CHASE being able to get the interview of the century on his own. She insists on going with him. Only problem? LILAC is Jewish and really doesn’t get the whole “Christmas” thing.
When they finally arrive at SANTA’S WORKSHOP, CHASE suddenly realizes he has a sort of a problem. He has developed a thing called “Santa on a Pedestal Syndrome” which means that every time he catches site of SANTA, he hyperventilates and passes out. Not the best thing for conducting interviews.
But remember… SANTA can solve anything because, after all, he is SANTA!
Join Santa, Mrs. Claus, Dasher, Prancer, Chase and Lilac for this hilarious trip to the North Pole.

THE IRISH WAKE OF PADDY O’TOOLE
Regrettably, our dear boy, Paddy O’toole, has passed away but… It seems the Pearly Gates are a bit backed up today and Paddy finds himself in a bit of a “holding pattern” for a while. So… Of course, he decides to visit his own wake to see what kind of send-off his friends have decided to give him. AND!… In the spirit of the true Irish Wake, the party continues downstairs in the “Pub” afterward where the audience can mingle and mix with the “Eulogizers!” GREAT FUN!
EVAN MYLES… MADNESS!
A theatrical musical spun in the mystical world of MAGIC! In the style of a Broadway Musical, EVAN and company introduce a most clever story line as they entertain through music, singing, dance, and a thread of magic joining each unique vignette. After all… There’s a little “MADNESS” in all of us… wouldn’t you say?
MOTHER TRUCKERS… THE RADIO SHOW
In “MOTHER TRUCKERS – THE RADIO SHOW” the saga continues! Only this time, we get even wackier. This script continues the story of Maxine and Charlotte’s adventures, loosely based on an old time “Radio Show” format, complete with a Foley Artist (who is really the janitor) to do all the sound effects… sort of! (Oooops!)
The girls are now pretty seasoned at bein’ long haulers and we find them in six different “episodes” taking them in “six different directions”. Our ditsy house sitter, Mary Ellen, returns in all her glory and we meet all sorts of new characters along the way including a funeral director and an escaped convict. And, each episode is introduced by a neurotic Announcer who’d rather be anywhere but… here.
WHAT COULD BE MORE FUN?
LOVE AND MERGER
It’s 1994 and the town of Regal, South Carolina is going bankrupt. Why?… Well the whole town was built up around a typewriter company and the world is now going the way of the computer. We all meet in the Town Council Meeting Room to discuss what we can possibly do to save the town and our real estate values when… suddenly… we get word that our town founder has died and left his entire estate to the town. It’s now up to the Council Members to figure out how to spend it. LET THE LARCENY BEGIN!!! (An uproarious comedy of the scandalous type.)
