"Saint Peter's Escort Service, LLC" by Gary Ray Stapp

February 28 - March 3 & March 7-10, 2019


  

It’s good vs. evil for those arriving at their eternal homes. Stella, a competent and compassionate employee of Saint Peter, is constantly at odds with her counterpart Cessal, a vain, deceitful, egotistical, and sexist front man for the Dark Prince. Stella’s giggly, new apprentice only adds to her frustration. Ever the consummate professional, she meets her new arrivals, who have been waiting in line at Purgatory for their turn to register. Though they’ve passed on, the dearly departed still have lively personalities: an aspiring dancer with an unfortunate name, an impatient senator, and a man who goes AWOL to avoid eternity with his late wife. Big changes are coming: a promotion, a demotion and St. Peter’s Escort Service will never be the same!

"It Runs in the Family" by Ray Cooney


June 6-9 & June 13-16, 2019


  

It’s 10:45 AM and a spectacular assortment of nuts populate the staff at London’s St. Andrew’s Hospital, including Dr. David Mortimore. Before the morning is over, he’ll try to fend off a paternity suit, an ex-wife, a punkish son and various other lunatics so that he may, at last, deliver the Ponsonby Lecture to hundreds of colleagues at noon - just down the hall!

"The Haunted Through Lounge and Recessed Dining Nook at Farndale" by David McGillivray & Walter Zerlin, Jr.

JUST FOR KIDS! OCTOBER 19, 2018

THEATRE FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES AT GARNETT & CENTRAL HEIGHTS ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

Two toll trolls bickering on a bridge have a ’falling out’ after Belinda ("Billy"), the smallest of three goats, decides to become a ’bully goat.’

As if paying a toll to get across the bridge wasn’t bad enough, now anyone who dares to trip-trap over the bridge gets knocked off by Billy!  


Willy, her peace-loving medium-size sister, tries to talk her out of it, but alas, she ends up over the edge herself.  Fred, the biggest of the three goats, just wants to eat grass on the other side and even unwittingly helps Billy just so he can eat sooner.  At first it seems funny, but the unfairness of Billy’s bullying becomes more and more apparent as one innocent victim after another gets pushed off the bridge.  


But the townspeople have a plan to teach Billy a lesson about bullying that she won't soon forget .
