A Comedy by Caroline Smith
March 06th thru April 11th, 2015
This hilarious play tells the story of are two "mature" rival cable-access cooking show hostesses Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flung harder than the food! Dolly's long-suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly's dressing room is
one inch closer to the set than Isobel's, it's a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel outshine both Jerry Springer and Martha Stewart! What ensues are insults and food fights and a secret from their past revealed. You become the studio audience in this dysfunctional cooking show.

It seems like a typical day in Metropolis while some bank robbers attempt to knock over the local vault, Superman flies out of the sky and captures them, and the citizens feel wonderfully safe. But there are darker plots brewing. Superman's efforts to defeat Dr. Abner Sedgwick, a ten-time Nobel Prize-losing scientist who seeks toavenge the scientific world's dismissal of his brilliance by attempting to destroy the world's symbol of good. Additionally, Superman comes into romantic conflict with Max Mencken, a columnist for the Daily Planet newspaper, who resents Lois Lane's attraction to Superman.
A Comedy by Joe Sears, Jaston Williams and Ed Howard

What do Arles Struvie, Thurston Wheelis, Aunt Pearl, Petey Fisk, Phineas Blye, Rev. Spikes and Yippie the dog have in common? In this hilarious send-up of small town morals and mores, they are all among the upstanding citizens of Tuna, Texas' third smallest town. Where the Lion's Club is too liberal and Patsy Cline never dies. The eclectic band of citizens, men, women, children and even animals that make up this town are portrayed by only two performers, making this satire on life in rural America even more delightful as they depict all of the inhabitants of Tuna. We're giving you the key to the city of Tuna—and that key opens a stage door filled with non-stop laughter.
