Heaven help us.

March Madness  | Open: 10/26/12 Close: 11/18/12
With the economy struggling and newspapers dying, Maury and his fellow reporters devise a desperate plan that will allow one of them to escape office hell and live his or her dream. The office sports pool, once a fun diversion, becomes a deadly serious game when the ante is substantially raised, and what's at stake becomes no less than their lives. And yes, it’s a comedy!

Sister Myotis's Bible Camp  | Open: 06/11/10 Close: 07/04/10
Being the head deaconess of an 80,000-member mega-church is not without its challenges. In SISTER MYOTIS'S BIBLE CAMP, the faithful flocks need tending. And for the faithless, well, let's just say there's hope. Sister Myotis, Ima Lone, and Velma Needlemeyer will be in attendance to host the annual Women's Church Retreat in hopes of giving backsliders, whoremongers, and the "chronically mediocre" a second chance at salvation.

Steve Swift stars as Sister Myotis, whose sermon on thongs and "good Christian panties" has become a YouTube sensation, with over 2,600,000 viewers. Joining Mr. Swift are Todd Berry as Velma Needlemeyer and Jenny Odle Madden as Ima Lone.

SISTER MYOTIS'S BIBLE CAMP features set design by Jerre Dye; costume design by Ashley Whitten Kopera and Kim Yeager, with Kathy Farris; and sound design by David Newsome.
