Our 2021 Season

Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and Then Some!) by Michael Carleton, John K. Alvarez, James FitzGerald

Opens December 10, 2021

Instead of performing Charles Dickens’ beloved holiday classic for the umpteenth time, three actors decide to perform every Christmas story ever told—add a sprinkling of Christmas traditions from around the world, seasonal icons from ancient times to contemporary pop-culture, and every carol ever sung—and you’ve got a madcap romp through the holiday season.

Part vaudeville and part Complete Works of William Shakespeare…AbridgedEvery Christmas Story Ever Told… is a fast, furious, and slightly irreverent look at holiday classics and traditions. Santa Claus, Rudolph, the Grinch, and just about every other seasonal character, make an appearance in this racy comedy that will have you laughing all the way to the New Year!

This production is best for revelers ages 13 and up.

Baby With The Bathwater by Christopher Durang

Closed October 31, 2021

Baby With The Bathwater, by Christopher Durang, is a dark comedy about how difficult it is to be a parent, and how scary it is to be a baby and a child. 

It is a bitingly satiric black comedy by one of theatre’s most provocative and inventive writers,  he skewers parenthood with savagely gleeful wit and characteristically outrageous humor. 

Wacky is the word for Baby With The BathwaterWinningly wild and wonderful apply too as does gut-bustingly hilarious, a bathtub full of adjectives and adverbs that make Durang’s play is an odd little piece – comic and absurd, yet still with a purpose and a heart.

Bash closed August 29, 2021

Bash, by Neil LaBute, is a collection of three one-act plays. 

Each play is an exploration of the complexities of evil in everyday life, and two of the works, “iphigenia in orem” and “medea redux” have direct Greek influence, specifically Iphigenia in Aulis and Medea by Euripides.
