Knocked up and seriously broke, a successful publicist is plunged into a topsy-turvy

tale of falling down and finding the beauty within, an uptown African American Ivy-educated
publicist returns to her parents' home in the Brooklyn projects in order to become
a part of the family she left behind.

Sex education, confession, nuns, heartache and first love – all ingredients for a
fun filled night at the theatre – and all part of growing up in 1950s Catholic school.
This delightful musical captures the comedy, the horror, joy and tenderness of adolescent
growing pains. Eddie Ryan and his friends journey from 2nd grade to graduation in
this hilarious and poignant musical. It will tickle the funny bone of anyone who ever

Stories, characters and themes from Ovid’s Metamorphoses tell the gripping story of
street kids living on the edge in a desolate, urban landscape. Iizuka creates a world
that has two dimensions: the gritty realm of drug dealers, homeless kids and prostitutes

that delivers spellbinding twists and turns at every corner.

Cunning gamesmanship is the order of the day in this intriguing tale of conflict set
during the Cold War era. The tensions between America and Russia are played out on
the chessboard in this dynamic rock opera that develops the sophisticated game of
chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and East-West political intrigue. Like
the game of chess, life and love sometimes require strategic power plays, manipulations,
and sacrificial pawns.
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
By Tom Stoppard
Directed by Paul Revaz
April, 17-19 and 24-26, 2014
An absurdist take on the story of Hamlet…as told from the skewed and unexpected perspective
of two relatively minor characters - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Comedy ensues as
the two oft-confused supporting players take center stage bewildered by their mission
and their reason for being. Madcap humor, witty wordplay, gripping tension and a heady
swirl of ideas all come together in this story of two nobodies who long to star in
their own story.
