New Comedy

Under the Bed

By Charlotte Nixon

COMEDY. Audiences of all ages will love the whimsical characters in this adorable play.  Afraid of the dark, the Boogeyman sends his two minions, Snooze and Snore, to steal a teddy bear so he can get a good night’s sleep.  Even though Mary is too old to be afraid of the dark, she sets out to retrieve her stolen teddy bear by venturing into the secret world under her bed. There, Mary encounters speed-dating mismatched socks looking for their perfect match, a support group for lost and broken toys, and bed bugs engaged in a battle with their arch-enemies, the dust bunnies.  When Mary finally reaches Boogeyman Castle, she realizes that getting her teddy bear back may be more difficult than she thought.  Her teddy is now known as “Mr. Bear” and has become the Boogeyman’s best friend!

New Farce

King William Travels the World

By Tracy Krauss

FARCE. The laughs never end in this zany Monty Python-esque farce.  Pompous, narcissistic King William II has decided to travel the world accompanied by a snarky liege, a ridiculous yes-man with terrible pick-up lines, and an overzealous executioner.  Along the way, they meet a generic Canadian Prime Minister, some American gun-toting hillbillies, a Vegemite-eating crocodile hunter in Australia, and the Supreme Ruler of "Korea in the North" who likes to brag about his cardboard missiles.  Trip “highlights” include mistaking baguettes for swords in France, drinking turpentine-tasting coffee in Russia, and the unexpected arrival of a zombie horde in England.  Easy to stage with scene-stealers for everyone in the cast!
