LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS
Directed by Daniel Ziegler - November 2021
Meek flower shop assistant Seymour pines for co-worker Audrey. During a total eclipse, he discovers an unusual plant he names Audrey II, which feeds only on human flesh and blood.

After Seymour feeds Audrey's boyfriend, Orin to the plant after Orin's accidental death, he must come up with more bodies for the increasingly bloodthirsty plant.
JACOB MARLEY'S CHRISTMAS CAROL
Directed by Penelope Carroll - December 2021
“Marley was dead, to begin with…” - and what happens to Ebenezer Scrooge’s mean, sour, pruney old business partner after that? Chained and shackled, Marley is condemned to a hellish eternity. He’s even given his own private tormentor: a malicious little hell-sprite who thoroughly enjoys his work. Desperate, Marley accepts his one chance to free himself: To escape his own chains, he must first redeem Scrooge. So begins a journey of laughter and terror, redemption and renewal, during which Scrooge’s heart, indeed, is opened; but not before Marley—in this irreverent, funny and deeply moving story—discovers his own.
FIVE WOMEN WEARING THE SAME DRESS
Directed by Evan Tillett - January 2022
In this hilarious comedy, five very different bridesmaids find themselves hiding together in an upstairs bedroom, hoping to escape the wedding reception of a bride that -- they soon realize -- none of them really like! In this cramped bedroom above the wedding, these five identically dressed women talk, laugh, argue, cry, console one another, and slowly become friends.
ARSENIC AND OLD LACE
Directed by Jessica Sands - February 2022
Mortimer Brewster is living a happy life: he has a steady job at a prominent New York newspaper, he’s just become engaged, and he gets to visit his sweet spinster aunts to announce the engagement. Mortimer always knew that his family had a bit of a mad gene -- his brother believes himself to be Teddy Roosevelt and his great-grandfather used to scalp Indians for pleasure -- but his world is turned upside down when he realizes that his dear aunts have been poisoning lonely old men for years!
NEXT TO NORMAL
Directed by Lara Parks - April 2022
This acclaimed musical, winner of several of Broadway's prestigious Tony Awards as well as the Pulitzer Prize, is the story of a family traumatized by death and struggling with issues related to the mental illness of one of its members. As it explores aspects of the power and function of memory, the work also considers thematic questions relating to the nature and value of loyalty and the need for hope in the face of adversity.
