Book and lyrics by Keythe Farley and Brian Flemming, Music by Laurence O'Keefe
Ripped from the headlines of the Weekly World News, Bat Boy the Musical is a classic love story with a serious bite. This delicious twist on the modern day musical comedy tells the amazing story of a young boy with pointy ears, his struggle to find a place in a world that shuns him and the love that can create miracles and madness.
RUMORS, by Neil Simon
11/19 – 11/22
At a large, tastefully appointed townhouse, the Deputy Mayor of New York has just shot himself. Though only a flesh wound, four couples are about to experience a severe attack of Farce. Gathering for their tenth wedding anniversary, the host lies bleeding in the other room, his wife is nowhere in sight and his lawyer, must get "the story" straight before the other guests arrive. As the confusion and mis-communication mounts, the evening spins off into classic farcical hilarity.

SEXUAL PERVERSITY IN CHICAGO, by David Mamet
End of April – exact dates TBD
In this, one of his earliest works, Mamet examines the romantic entanglements of two men and two women in 1970's Chicago. The play presents intimate relationships as minefields of buried fears and misunderstandings. Finding poetry in everyday speech, Mamet explores the war between the sexes with wicked humor and gleeful vulgarity.
