Directed by Jenni Caruso
In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity's most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides that he's had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!
Winner of three Tony Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, bureaucracy, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself!
Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective on one of America's greatest art forms.
THE WILD WOMEN OF WINEDALE
Directed by Sylvia Davenport Veith
This joyful, exuberant, yet ultimately touching, comedy focuses on three women at crossroads in their lives—the Wild sisters and their frustratingly quirky sister-in-law. This feisty, fun-loving trio has supported and cheered one another through life’s highs and lows through the years, including the demise of two husbands.
With equal doses of hilarity and heart, these extraordinary women come up with delightful and unorthodox ways to clear the clutter from their lives, homes and relationships so they can move their lives forward.
This Jones Hope Wooten comedy is guaranteed to drive you wild with laughter—and motivate you to keep hounding the kids to please take that stack of quilts and Granny’s Christmas china.

THE LARAMIE PROJECT
Written by: Moises Kaufman.
Directed by Tyson White
The Laramie Project is a play about the reaction to the 1998 murder of gay University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The murder, denounced as a hate crime, brought attention to the lack of hate crime laws in various states, including Wyoming.
The play draws on hundreds of interviews conducted by a New York theatre company with inhabitants of the town, published news reports, and the company members' own journal entries.
The Laramie Project is one of the most frequently performed plays in America, as its messages still resonate with countless audiences today.
A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED
Written By: Agatha Christie
Directed by Scott Rousseau
A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie begins with the local newspaper printing a story about a murder, that oddly has yet to occur.
The neighbors soon realize the advertisement was not a game—the man really was killed. But was it murder? Or
suicide? The case is brought to Detective Craddock who, with Miss Marple’s help, discovers that the situation becomes more dangerous as time to solve it is running out.
This is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.
