Current Production 



 

It’s the 1950’s and Broadway is booming. Producers, writers and directors all have big dreams and theatre critics/columnists have the power to make those dreams come true.  None was more powerful than Mickey Blake.  When Blake is found dead in the Tin Box Theatre after a performance of the off-off Broadway production of The Blighted Heart, a trio of hapless but determined theater folk refuse to let their dream be deterred. Producer Saul Solomon, Writer Robert Grey and Director Stanley Miller hatch a plan to fake the review of their show and hide Blake’s death just long enough to let it hit the stands.  A producer, writer and director working as a team? Is it even possible?  Just when they think they have it all under control, the overly enthusiastic producer, self-deprecating writer and middleman director are hit with a surprise that sends their ruse into overdrive and binds this unlikely band of brothers together in the face of the mayhem that ensues.

What happens when those trendy, hip, rebellious characters from the genre’ of coming of age musicals make it out of their early twenties and microcosms of generational life? They become real adults, with boring jobs, responsibilities, bills and taxes just like the rest of us saps!

A send up of some of the most popular new generation musicals in the tradition of the runaway Fun House hit, The Sound of Fannie, Mortgage is created, directed and produced by the same team and promises all of the hilarity, and of course showstoppers of its predecessor.

Actor's Exploration Series

The Actor’s Exploration Series is aimed at challenging our young actors while pushing the boundaries of what audiences expect to see from “children’s theater”. Going beyond the traditional models of youth productions, our Actor’s Exploration Series centers on giving young actors the opportunity to explore complex material and for audiences to be exposed to playwrights, dramatic formats and subject matter not thought of as children’s fare. It is an unparalleled educational opportunity for the next generation of actors and an entertainment option for the theatrically savvy as well as those just being introduced to the art of theatre.

 

Next up in the series, Neil Labute’s The Shape of Things directed by Brad Baker.
