Feeling that her life is stuck in neutral, Becky Foster struggles to find herself during a midlife crisis. Gears shift rapidly after Walter, a grief-stricken millionaire walks into the dealership where Becky works. The true to life comedy explores the perils of middle aged longing and regret. Playwright Steven Dietz invites the audience to ride shot gun as Becky finds herself at a crossroads, picks her path and gains a whole new lease on life. With serious overtones, the thoroughly original comedy is a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

After receiving divine intervention from his guardian angel, “Everyman” George Bailey is given a wake-up call. Making his descent on Christmas Eve, the angel shows him what the world would have been like had he never been born. Saving him from despair he shows him that his has been, after all, a wonderful life. Almost as familiar as Dicken’s “A Christmas Carol”, the dramatization celebrates more than the faith of the season. It also celebrates the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one’s family and community will be rewarded.

The curtain rises to find Alice sliding into view at the end of her long fall down the rabbit-hole. It is a more delightful place for the audience than for Alice, who is trying desperately to find her way back home. The play contains delightful incidents and capers as she seeks help from the Mad Hatter, the Rabbit and the mischievous Cheshire Cat.

This new dramatization of C.S. Lewis' classic, set in the land of Narnia, faithfully recreates the magic and mystery of Aslan, the great lion, his struggle with the White Witch, and the adventures of four children who inadvertently wander from an old wardrobe into the exciting, never-to-be-forgotten Narnia. The intense action features chases, duels and escapes as the witch is determined to keep Narnia in her possession and to end the reign of Aslan. All the memorable episodes from the story are represented in this exciting dramatization: the temptation of Edmund by the witch, the slaying of the evil wolf by Peter, the witnessing of Aslan's resurrection by Susan and Lucy, the crowing of the four new rulers of Narnia, and more. The supporting characters are also here: the unicorn, the centaur and other forest animals, along with Father Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver and Tumnus the Faun. This story of love, faith, courage and giving, with its triumph of good over evil, is a true celebration of life.

Auditions: August 18 & 19, 2014
