Saturday November 3: MARY AND MAX. A  NEW MUSICAL

Based on an Australian Clymation film, it is a hilarious and heartening tale that proves frienship can be found in the unlikeliest places.

Saturday December 15: A CHRISTMAS CAROL

Saturday February 2 2019: BOOM

Rick MiIler, who gave us his one man show BOOM a coupleof years ago, is back where he left us then, that is at Woodstock in 1969. Some of the characters from then reappear (Elvis gets fat, Lennon gets shot and Reagan gets elected) but the focus turns from his mother to his own story. The show follows Generation X as it navigates the legacy of the Baby boom.

The ticket price for this play is $45.00

Saturday March 16 2019: THE SCARLET LETTER

Adapted from Nathaniel Hawthorne novel, we're in 1642 and Hester Prynne has been branded an adulterer by her Puritan village and forced to wear the titular scarlet letter as repentance. In this modern adaptation, Hester is unashamed and proudly subverts the rigid standard put upon women to be virtuous and good.
