Fallout from a satellite probe shot to Venus returns to Earth carrying mysterious radiation that transforms the unburied dead into flesh-eating
zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as the dead encroach.
This gripping blend of horror laced with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and brings all the fright of the cult classic to life
unfolding into a shocking theatrical ending. Beware: This show requires a gore factor.

Humorist Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in the midwest in the 1940s follows 9-year-old Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB
gun under the tree for Christmas. All the elements from the beloved motion picture are here, including the family's temperamental exploding furnace; Scut
Farkas, the school bully; the boys' experiment with a wet tongue on a cold lamppost; the Little Orphan Annie decoder pin; Ralphie's father winning a lamp
shaped like a woman's leg in a net stocking; Ralphie's fantasy scenarios and more. A Christmas Story is destined to become a theatrical holiday classic.

Play On!

This is the hilarious story of a theater group trying desperately to put on a play in spite of maddening interference from a haughty author who keeps
revising the script. Act I is a rehearsal of the dreadful show, Act II is the near disastrous dress rehearsal, and the final act is the actual
performance in which anything that can go wrong does. When the author decides to give a speech on the state of the modern theatre during the
curtain calls, the audience is treated to a madcap climax to a thoroughly hilarious romp.

seemingly cold-hearted Warbucks. He decides to help Annie find her long lost parents by offering a reward. However, Miss Hannigan, her evil
