AND THEN THERE WERE NONE
Ten strangers, each with something to hide - or fear - are lured to a remote island by an unseen host. With no way to leave, the guests begin to share their dark secrets—and then, one by one, they die. Based on the best-selling mystery novel of all time, this thriller contains perhaps the most unpredictable plot ever devised by Agatha Christie.
THE GREAT AMERICAN TRAILER PARK CHRISTMAS MUSICAL
REGIONAL PREMIERE! In this sequel to the original show [the runaway hit of 2013 at Stray Dog Theatre], Betty, Lin and Pickles jingle all the way with some new neighbors in Florida’s Armadillo Acres Mobile Home Park. All is calm and bright with holiday beer until the local Scrooge is stricken by a freak bout of amnesia, putting neighborly love to the test. Just as much cat-fightin’, sun-worshippin’, chair-throwin’ as the first, but with tinsel and Keg Nog to boot!
GOD OF CARNAGE
A comedy of manners … without the manners. Two married couples meet to sort out a playground fight between their sons. At first, niceties are observed but as the evening progresses and the rum flows, the gloves come off and the night becomes a side-splitting free-for-all.
THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD
This raucous show within a show kicks off when a hilariously loony Victorian musical troupe “puts on” its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Charles Dickens mystery. Each performance ends differently depending on how the audience chooses to finish the story that Dickens didn’t!
DOG SEES GOD: CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE BLOCKHEAD
A New York Fringe Festival hit which satirizes the Peanuts comic strip by aging its cast of characters into their teenage years. Consumed with teenage angst, experimentation and sexual identity, CB and his friends face questions of morality, the existence of an afterlife and true friendship.
SPELLBOUND! A MUSICAL FABLE
WORLD PREMIERE! The story of a young woman’s search for inner strength and self-acceptance is told as a clever mash-up of fables and fairy tales. Arabella takes a wondrous and transcendent journey through the mythical land of Samaren where at every turn she is thwarted by an evil enchantress, shape-shifting beasts and a plethora of magic potions. Full of humor and adventure – with a contemporary nod to many diverse cultures – this world premiere musical is not to be missed!
