This original satire on contemporary privacy examines the working relationships of three corporate trainers from Chicago, who spend the week in the "all too-small" business suite of a Wisconsin Rapids hotel. What transpires is a hilarious affair, full of double-talk, bed-hopping, and corporate intrigue. Facebook and Angry Birds cross paths with fantasy baseball, while covert espionage meets a lounge band called “Turkey Vulture.”

Directed by Steve Noll


In 1895, the Marquis of Queensberry, the father of Oscar Wilde’s young lover, Lord Alfred Douglas, left a card at Wilde’s club accusing him of being a “posing somdomite” [sic]. Wilde sued him for libel. Thus began a series of events which led to Wilde’s trials for “gross indecency.” Moisés Kaufman’s critically acclaimed off-Broadway hit uses court transcripts, personal correspondence, interviews and other source materials to recreate the tragic fall of the once-reigning wit of London, Oscar Wilde.

By Richard Winchester

Written by Mark Sargeant

Directed by Michael Bruno


The story takes place in Joan Crawford’s living room circa 1944, where she has scheduled a live interview with Hedda Hopper in a desperate bid for publicity in hopes of saving her career. Joan’s plan is foiled, however, when numerous Hollywood icons drop by to steal the spotlight, including Judy Garland, Carmen Miranda, the Andrews Sisters, Ethel Merman, and, of course, Bette Davis as “Baby Jane.” And when Joan’s “adoring” children take the stage, it becomes clear why Christmas with the Crawfords is called “the mother of all campy holiday musicals”!

The Lion in Winter depicts the personal and political conflicts of King Henry II of England, his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, their children and their guests.Set during Christmas 1183 at Henry II of England's castle in Chinon, the story concerns the gamesmanship between Henry, Eleanor, their three surviving sons Richard, Geoffrey, and John, and their Christmas Court guest, the King of France, Philip II Augustus (French: Philippe Auguste), who was the son of Eleanor's ex-husband, Louis VII of France (by his third wife, Adelaide). Also involved is Philip's half-sister Alais, who has been at court since she was betrothed to Richard at age eight, but has since become Henry's mistress.
