Current Production 




Matt Lyle, long ordained one of the city’s kings of comedy, is back in The House and reigning over a run of hilarity of epic proportions. Fun House Theatre and Film brings one of Woody Allen’s first works to the stage with God, A Comedy in One Act.  Under Lyle’s direction a cast of 20 young actors ranging in age from 8-17 take on this absurdist and existential comedy, frenetically paced and touching on social commentary, philosophical questions and even a bit of the meta-theatrical. The play is the story of Hepatitis and Diabetes, a playwright and actor from Ancient Greece,  who are struggling to find an end to their play.  From that starting point, Woody Allen creates a work that, though written early in his career, has all of the markings of his now revered and unique style. Coupled with each performance is a Long Form Improv set from Fun House’s renowned all youth improv troupe, Unicorn Clearance, under the leadership of Jeff Swearingen. A pair of the local comedically gifted, the work of a comic genius and a slew of the funniest comedians of the younger set can only mean one thing. The laughs will be abundantly bestowed in October’s best bet of a comedy event. Recommended for ages 10 and up.

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.
