The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [Abridged]  | Open: 04/13/07 Close: 04/29/07
It can only be described as a roller coaster romp through all of Shakespeare's plays (with a brief drive-by of his sonnets as well). Full of irreverence, wit and good old fashioned screwball comedy, none of the Bard's works are safe from these three (self-proclaimed?) Shakespearean "experts" and even the audience can't get out of the line of fire.
Dark of the Moon  | Open: 02/22/07 Close: 03/18/07
A modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet, Dark of the Moon takes place in the mountains of North Carolina in the early 1920's within a tight knit community that strongly values religion, music, and hard work. Intertwined with beautiful folk and gospel music, Dark of the Moon is the story of a witch boy named John (Kevin Sebastian) who falls in love with the headstrong Barbara Allen (Emily Mostyn-Brown) and begs Conjur Man to make him human so he can pursue her. If Barbara stays faithful for one year, John can remain in her human world. But as strange occurrences begin in Buck Creek, the townspeople search for why their community is being disrupted and will do whatever it takes to return to their comfortable ways.
Vampingo/Moonbite  | Open: 01/24/07 Close: 02/10/07
"Vampingo: a comedy with bite" is a tasty, twisted tale of one woman's perilous fun-house journey, cowritten and performed by Ariana Johns and cowritten and directed by Jolene Adams. Alwyn is a bright, ethereal woman with unconventional coping skills, which lead her to a series of "Suicidal Tendencies" meetings. There, she meets a colorful array of characters, each with their very own demon. Befriended by a vampire flamingo, she faces her own shadows before emerging into the light of self-awareness. By turns hilarious, poignant and illuminating, Vampingo provides an entertaining hour of quirky dark fun, with an occasional scream. It will be performed with "Moonbite" - a montage of lunar-inspired comic vignettes directed by Greg Mullavey.
