Young writer Steve Jenkins is home sick, so he's working on a new story for a big-league writing contest. In his feverish condition, Lucky Hudson, Steve's crime-busting hero, appears and takes Steve into the comic underworld of zany gangsters, night clubs, and back alleys. Full of oddball criminals such as Big Al, Little Al, and Medium Al, Ma Cribbs, Mad Dog Myrtle, Two Gun Tommy, Petty-Larceny Jane and more, Steve experiences thrilling hold-ups, a prison riot, and even his own sentencing to death row! The bad guys are planning the biggest caper in the history of gangland, and it's up to Steve and Lucky to blow the whistle! This is a fun escape into the noir style with loads of laughs and gags.

Number the Stars
Adapted by Dr. Douglas W. Larche
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatic Publishing Company
During the German occupation of Denmark in World War II, the Nazis closed down Jewish-owned businesses and began to round up the Jews for relocation to concentration camps for the final solution. Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring, hurried attempts to rescue the entire Jewish population. In this stirring play, young Annemarie and Kirsti Johansen face soldiers, interrogations, fierce dogs, personal danger, the loss of loved ones and their own fears as they try to help their friend Ellen Rosen escape across the ocean to Sweden and safely. Courage, faith, ingenuity and even their fledgling acting skills eventually win the day. All the drama, pathos, adventure, terror and humor that have made Number the Stars a national best seller (and winner of the Newberry Award and the American Library Association Book of the Year Award) come to life in this powerful adaptation.

Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother.
And Then What Happened?
By Jenny Burke
Written by local playwright Jenny Burke, And Then What Happened? is a quirky, insightful adventure into what might have happened after "happily ever after." In the opening scene, characters fondly remember the fairytales their teachers told them as elementary students. However, they also share their questions about the holes in the popular plots. The title question, of course, becomes the central theme. Join us for a retelling of "The Frog Prince," "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," and "The Princess and the Pea," along with intriguing "sequels" for each.
Auditions scheduled for late March. Subject to change.
