by Bradley Hayward

Thinking outside the box is not always easy, especially when the world requires you to live on the inside. Exhausted from cramming into corners where they do not fit, six teenagers turn things inside out by inviting others to see things from a whole new perspective.

Bad Auditions by Bad Actors

by Ian McWethy

A casting director has one day to find the leads for a community theater production of Romeo and Juliet. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of actors includes extreme method actors, performers who just don’t know what to do with their hands, and one particular woman who may or may not think she’s a cat. This hilarious comedy will bring you to the last place you’d ever want to be…behind the doors of a casting session.

Being different is good!

Based on the beloved Hans Christian Andersen fable, this high-energy musical comedy tells the story of Ugly, a duckling born into ridicule and loneliness simply because he is different.

Based on the hit TV series written by Jeremy Lloyd and David Croft, the story follows the adventures of René Artois, a café owner in the town of Nouvion in German occupied France. Surrounded by German Officers, the Gestapo, Resistance fighters, amorous waitresses, escaped Allied airmen and a British agent disguised as a Frinch polossman (oops, French policeman),  René tries to please everyone with hilarious results.

Trying to hide the priceless portrait of the Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies, stolen from the Nazis and concealed in a knockwurst sausage in his cellar is only one of René’s worries!
