Mainstage Shows

Cannibal Diaries
by Paco Jose Madden
October 2023

It’s sometime in near future America and the consumption of meat is outlawed.  Red-blooded Americans must fulfill their cravings for man flesh somehow, someway.  Enter 13-year-old Cindy and her family of cannibals.  They prey upon members of the community while keeping their cannibalism under wraps.  But what happens when everyone turns cannibal?  Cindy and her fam find themselves on the lam.  Will they survive or find themselves as someone else’s lunch?   

Coming Out for Christmas 
by Carlin Thomas
December 2023

Having lesbian moms means double the potential mommy issues. After making a pact with friends to come out to her moms before Christmas, shy Jenna works up the courage to share via a story she's written. As her moms read, every Twilight/Divergent chapter gets more dystopian than the last, but will they be ready for what they discover at the end? An uplifting story that shows the necessity and power of inclusivity, Coming Out for Christmas is a grand celebration of love and family.

They’ll Love You for It 
by Ilana Lydia
March 2024

The future of 2080.  America has veered to the right and the mentally ill are no longer classified as human beings.  A paranoid schizophrenic is visited by a social worker who offers her soup, but both are scooped up and taken to the state hospital.  When they return both land a spot on a commercialized reality show.  A story with Capitalism on steroids and the chill factor of The Hunger Games, They’ll Love You for It mixes the surreal with the only-too-real and shows how bureaucracy can eat people alive. 

12th Night:  Roll for Perception
Adapted from Shakespeare by Chris Frank
June 2024

Retold as a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, this Shakespearean tale is known for the yellow cross-gartered Malvolio, a misunderstood and much-abused manservant who is punished for his hubris by being led to believe that his lady has fallen in love with him.  Funny and often surprising, this script imbues a modern sensibility into one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, 12th Night.

Studio Season
