TWELVE ANGRY MEN is a play by Reginald Rose adapted from his 1954 teleplay of the same time. A 19-year-old man has just stood trial for the fatal stabbing of his father. “He doesn’t stand a chance,” mutters the guard as the 12 jurors are taken into the bleak jury room. It looks like an open-and-shut case—until one of the jurors begins opening the others’ eyes to the facts. The twelve men must unanimously decide on a verdict of “guilty” or “not guilty” and are further instructed that a guilty verdict will be accompanied by a mandatory death sentence. The jurors’ final verdict and how they reach it—in tense scenes that will electrify your audience and keep them on the edge of their seats—add up to a fine, mature piece of dramatic literature, and a riveting experience. May not appeal to youth under 13 years old.

The songs of Elvis Presley form the backdrop for this musical about a mysterious, leather-jacketed stranger who shakes up a small Midwestern town in the 1950s. Librettist Joe DiPietro’s tale of the cross-dressing, mistaken identity and romance that ensue was inspired by TWELFTH NIGHT and other Shakespearean comedies. Just to make things perfectly clear — and to forestall disappointment for a certain fans — there are no bona fide Elvis impersonators in view.  Chad arrives in a small Midwestern town that is smarting under an inhibiting “decency proclamation,” instituted by its uptight mayor and teaches the squares how to swing. Natalie, the local ‘grease monkey’, falls for him and disguises herself as a man to win his affections. A rotating cast of characters, including the diner owner, her daughter, a strict mayor, police, and ruffians engage in convoluted love plots throughout the show.

When Tom and Sandy perform their Les Paul & Mary Ford Tribute Show it’s like the best time travel ever! Tom and Sandy are not just merely doing an impression of these great entertainers of the past, Tom has a long personal history with THE great and famous guitar Icon. Tom Doyle’s guitar riffs are simply amazing, and his high speed fingerpicking make his one instrument sound like dozens. While Tom is making the music, his wife and stage partner Sandy sounds eerily just like the inimitable Mary Ford herself with that uncanny self-harmony that Les and Mary made so famous all those years ago.

The classic American play by Joseph Kesselring, is a dubious tale of two murderous aunts who see their killing as an act of charity. Generations of theatergoers have laughed their heads off over the homicidal activities of two sweet spinster ladies, Abby and Martha Brewster, who just happen to be insane. Their nephew, a theatre critic, spends most of the play attempting to unravel the deadly mess his aunts have weaved. Throw in a long-lost brother, whose face is supposed to look like Frankenstein, another brother who believes he is Teddy Roosevelt, and you have a pretty entertaining night on your hands.This story is full of mishaps, mystery, and murder.
