Ebenezer (VOLDAR) Scrooge is the miserly owner of the martian mining corporation. all of his employees and the local martians despise him, especially the little martian children. But what happens when three christmas ghosts visit him in the middle of the night? will he change his ways and embrace the holiday spirit or will he continue to destroy the rich martian landscape for money! Join us on the red planet for a green tale about the holidays! You can’t understand A christmas carol until you’ve heard it in the original martian.

Directed by Caroline Beadle

See How They Run
January 31st – February 22nd
A classic farce to kick off 2025. you’ll be in stitches all night long with the hilarious situations you’ll watch during this show. In an English vicarage, the vicar and his new wife are overwhelmed by a battery of guests, including an American actress, an American G.I. stationed with the Air Force in England, a cockney maid who has seen too many American movies, an old dowager who “touches alcohol for the first time in her life,” a sedate Bishop aghast at all these goings-on, and four men in identical clergyman suits, one of whom is an escaped prisoner.

Directed by Caitlin Robb and Michael May
Written by Philip King

The Old Man and the Old Moon
April 4th – 27th
The Old Man is the sole caretaker of the moon and has been responsible for filling it for longer than he (or his wife, the Old Woman) can remember. When the old woman is drawn away by a mysterious melody evoking memories of their past, the Old Man must decide between duty to the moon and love of adventure. what follows is an imaginative and delightful adventure including a sea-faring epic, apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change. Join us for a unique blend of music, storytelling, and shadow puppets.

Directed by McKenna Lyons
Originally Conceived and Produced by Pigpen Theatre Co.

For the The Old Man and the Old Moon we are specifically looking for actors that also play instruments, if you play an instrument please bring the instrument with you.

The Press Conference
May 2nd – 24th
The democratically elected governor of texas, jack thomas, is in the middle of a mean re-election campaign when he calls a press conference. then he goes missing. his staff is left to pick up the pieces of this mystery press conference while simultaneously trying to track down the governor. what’s this press conference about? where is the governor? Does anyone know what’s happening? a meditation on leadership and politics. How we can get caught up in political campaigns and forget what is the point of all these things…
