Welcome!
 

IT'S TIME TO VOTE! 
Our current choices for the election may be laughable, but you can decide how you wanna laugh with our next season!  It's that time for our ANNUAL AUDIENCE SURVEY! Where YOU pick our season!  Here are some of the shows we are considering:

A TUNA TRILOGY - The citizens of the third smallest town in Texas where the Lions Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline Never Dies! Did you know this play Greater Tuna has several sequels? Our hope is to kick off with Greater Tuna follow up before Christmas with a Tuna Christmas and then sometime in the spring new Red, White and Tuna and then at the end of the season culminating with all three plays in one week!

An ABRIDGED Season!
NOT shortened season but a full season of the "Abridged" plays by the Reduced Shakespeare Company including our annual favorite: The Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged!) and All The Great Books (Abridged), The Bible, the Complete Word of God (Abridged!) and their newest script: Completely Hollywood (Abridged) ...which condenses the 186 greatest films in Hollywood's 100-year history, into a complete compilation of classic cinematic cliches!

Other individual show ideas for 2016-17:

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy radio play - One of our favorite novels brought to life on stage. learn the meaning of life the universe and everything in the hilarious original play script by Douglas Adams... travel the universe with Arthur Dent and his best friend Ford Prefect and most of all don't panic!

An old-time vaudeville comedy revue.
Singing, dancing, & nod to some of the greats...Abbott & Costello, Laurel & Hardy and more!

I Love Lucy  
Vintage comedy adapted from old I Love Lucy scripts!

The Gin Game - By D.L. Coburn.
A Pulitzer prize winning Dramedy follows two elderly residents at a nursing home who strike up an acquaintance. Neither seems to have any other friends, and they start to enjoy each other's company. He offers to teach her how to play gin rummy, and they begin playing a series of games that she always wins. His inability to win a single hand becomes increasingly frustrating to him, while Fonsia becomes increasingly confident.

The 39 Steps  
The play's concept calls for the entirety of the 1935 adventure film The 39 Steps to be performed with a cast of only four! One actor plays the hero, Richard Hannay, an actress plays the three women with whom he has romantic entanglements, and two other actors play every other of the 150 characters in the show!

SHAKESPEARE'S FOOLS!  
A one-man Shakespeare production highlighting some of the most intelligent characters in literature... The FOOLS! Alone on stage, without props or costumes, performing some of Shakespeare's most striking comedic (and some dramatic) monologues...From the tragic Macbeth to the charming Romeo and Juliet, demonstrating the incredible universality of Shakespeare's plays with wit and humor, offering a discourse on some of the greatest literary works of all time.
