Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some)!

A Comedy by Michael Carleton, Jim FitzGerald, and John K. Alvarez

It’s back by popular demand! Weary of performing Charles Dickens’ expected holiday classic yet again, three actors are inspired to launch their own celebration by performing every Christmas story ever told — plus Christmas traditions from around the world — and seasonal icons from ancient times to topical pop culture. Throw in every Christmas carol ever sung and you have a madcap romp through the holiday season. 

‘Tis the season!!!

Three Hots and a Cot

A World Premiere by Theo St. Mane, Debbie L. Fuehrer
Music by Greg Hintermeister

Workshopped with inmates serving time at a federal prison, the play examines the struggle for self within the constraints of the prison experience. The audience is challenged to look into this “world apart” and to take note of the lives behind the razor wire, unseen by most of us, and yet emblematic of the humanity we all share.

Avenue Q

Music and Lyrics by Jeff Marx and Robert Lopez
Book by Jeff Whitty

This laugh-out-loud musical tells the timeless story of Princeton, a recent college grad who moves into a shabby New York apartment on Avenue Q. He soon discovers that this is not your ordinary neighborhood. Princeton and his new-found friends struggle to find jobs, dates and their ever-elusive purpose in life. While addressing humorous adult issues, Avenue Q is similar to a beloved children’s show; a place where puppets are friends, monsters are good, and life lessons are learned. Adult content for mature audiences!

Don’t Talk to the Actors

A Comedy by Tom Dudzick

Best-laid plans run amuck when the cast of a Broadway-bound play resorts to manipulation, diva-like behavior and chaotic abandon to get what they want. The fledgling playwright and his fiancée are suddenly swept up in the whirlwind of the NY theater scene: big money and the ego-driven world of Broadway. A playwright’s “dream-come-true” encounters the crazy characters and dilemmas theatrical nightmares are made of.

Based loosely on the playwright’s experiences putting up his first NY play, this is comedy at its side-splitting

Directed by: Mary Pyfferoen

Presented:   May 3-4, 9-11, 16-19, 2019
