Performance Dates:

November 3-19, 2017

Synopsis:

It's Christmas in Tuna, the third smallest town in Texas, where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies! Radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on various Yuletide activities. It's 24 hours before Christmas and the delightfully eccentric characters of Tuna attempt to cope with seasonal traumas such as the disaster prone little theatre production of A Christmas Carol, and a yard-decorating contest being sabotaged by a mysterious Christmas phantom.

Drama by Victor Gialanella
Adapted from novel by Mary Shelley

Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

Directed by: TBD

Performance Dates:

March 9-25, 2018


Synopsis:

Set in nineteenth-century Switzerland, this classic tale of horror and suspense details the ill-fated experiments of young Dr. Frankenstein as he attempts to fathom the secrets of life and death. Purchasing cadavers from two unsavory grave robbers, he gives life to a creature both hideous and touching—and so physically powerful and mentally twisted that he soon brings death or destruction to all who stand in his way. Adhering more closely to the original novel than did the famous motion picture versions, the play blends moments of brooding terror and sudden shock with questions of morality and the dangers of unrestrained scientific inquiry..

Cast: TBD
