The Incredible Speediness of Jamie Cavanaugh
by Chris Craddock
Directed by Christian Goutsis
April 27-May 6, 2017
Jamie Cavanaugh is pretty sure she has super powers, but nobody in her life seems to agree.  Trouble is, her super speed is getting out of control, and if shes not careful, the super villains in her life could snatch those powers away.  From the hilarious mind of Chris Craddock comes a wacky story of strength in unlikely places.

What I Stand For

Betrayal. Romance. Gambling. Allusions to classic literature. Fancy computers. Poker chips. Shoulder chips. Potato chips. Wordplay. Professional differences. Romantic tension. It all comes
together in the heist of a lifetime. Five diverse individuals must work together to bridge their differences in kinda stressful circumstances. Will they succeed? Or will they screw up and go home? No one knows.

Tech Week
Written and Directed by Mya Welsh
May 3 and 6
During tech week of any play, friendships are tested, curses are activated, love hecadecanonagones are revealed, and memories are made. In this play, Amber, Christy and Brian will bring you through all the emotional ups and downs of their tech week. After the newbie to theatre says the cursed M word during a rehearsal,some peculiar things start to happen: impromptu fires, chairs randomly falling apart, and strange behaviour  from kids who might have had a little too much Red Bull. Will the show go on, or will the chaos distract them from getting ready for the play? Opening night is only a week away! Find out in Tech Week!

This is Not a Love Story

May 3 and 5
Four kids are enduring purgatory together when strange events change the perception that they had of their place of suffering. With two teenage murderers and two drivebyvictims, this chilling tale explores a strange place and even stranger happenings through a haze of unexplained events.
