With Music and Lyrics by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg
August 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 2019
Young Dorothy Gale is swept away by a tornado from her Kansas farm to the magical land of Oz. There, she encounters a host of whimsical characters: good witches, bad witches, animals that talk, scarecrows that walk, and things magical to behold. To find her way home, she must journey along the Yellow Brick Road to see the mysterious and all-powerful Wizard in Emerald City. Along the way, she makes new friends, but must also brave many dangers, including the Wicked Witch of the West, who will stop at nothing to get her hands on Dorothy’s magical ruby slippers. To make it home safely, Dorothy must learn an important lesson: there’s no place like home.

War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast
Adapted by Joe Landry
Performance Dates October 4, 5, 6, 11,12,13, 2019
An alien invasion throws humanity into chaos in the classic sci-fi novel The War of the Worlds -- but all it took to cause real-life panic in the streets was Orson Welles's 1938 radio adaptation, which listeners took for news. Now, ten years later, the WBFR radio ensemble recreates the colorful events surrounding the infamous evening, including the full original broadcast. Complete with vintage commercials and live sound effects, this radio-play-within-a-radio-play is a thrilling homage to the form's golden age and timely reminder of what fear can do to a society.

Performance Dates December 6, 7, 8, 13,14,15, 2019
Frank Capra’s timeless film “It’s a Wonderful Life” has been given a fresh and creative new adaptation with Miracle in Bedford Falls. The award-winning team of Lowell Alexander and Mark Cabaniss have collaborated to bring this classic holiday screenplay to exciting new theatrical heights. Miracle in Bedford Falls tells the story of George Bailey, a man whose life seems picturesque: he married the love of his life, has four young children and runs his own business. However, on Christmas Eve, George encounters severe business difficulties at the Bailey Building and Loan Association. George’s Uncle Billy loses the cash they owe the bank, which is owned by the Scrooge-esque Mr. Potter, leading George to contemplate suicide. Fortunately he is saved at the last moment by the appearance of his guardian angel, Clarence.

And Then They Came for Me:
Remembering the World of Anne Frank
by James Still
March 20, 21, 22, 27,28, 29, 2020
And Then They Came for Me is a unique theatrical experience: a multimedia play that combines videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors Ed Silverberg and Eva Schloss with live actors recreating scenes from their lives during World War II. Ed was Anne Frank's first boyfriend, and she wrote about him in the beginning of her now-famous diary. Eva Schloss was the same age as Anne Frank and lived in the same apartment building in Amsterdam. Her family went into hiding the same day as the Frank family. And like the Frank family, they were betrayed. On Eva's 15th birthday, her family was arrested by the Nazis and sent to concentration camps.
AUDITIONS SUNDAY JANUARY 5, 2020 6:00 PM
Eva and her mother survived, and after the war her mother married Otto Frank (Anne's father). Part oral history, part dramatic action, part direct address, part remembrance, the ensemble-driven And Then They Came for Me breaks new ground and has been acclaimed by audiences and critics in world-wide productions. This production is like a historic newsreel brought to life on the stage. And it works. (Charles Epstein, WICR Radio, Indianapolis) And Then They Came for Me incorporates the use of live actors, videotape and a CD for each performance.
Plan 9 From Outer Space
by Mark Landon Smith
Performance Dates May 29, 30,31, June 5,6,7, 2020
This is it! The stage adaptation of Ed Wood’s Plan 9 From Outer Space, considered by many to be the worst movie ever made! Packing B-Movie thrills into 65 hair raising minutes, the story goes something like this. Visiting space soldiers use a magic-electro-space-ray-gun to resurrect a recently deceased (and perfectly ghoulish) human couple, putting “Plan 9” into action. The aliens must stop mankind from developing “Solaramite,” a substance that could set off a chain reaction of cosmic explosions that would destroy the entire universe. With “Plan 9” activated, the space aliens step up the action. Flying saucers invade! Hollywood reacts! The Pentagon responds! Even Colonel Sanders tries to stop the aliens and, well, this was absolutely the worst movie ever made.
