Just Regular People
by Carl Williams
directed by Doug Williams
Just a regular family off to see the court-ordered psychologist. He may need one of his own when they leave.
by Lauren Tunnell
directed by David Hymel
Ah money! Is it the cure or the curse? What happens when the office lottery pool hits it big, but someone did not chip in?
by Elaine Edstrom
directed by Crys Hymel
The boss is away and Junior is having a great time running the show. He has a few problems, but things really heat up when Dad gets back.
Me and My Shadow Person
by Jim Bain
directed by Ann Richie
Imagination, or was someone really there? Can Michael conquer his fear of seeing Shadows as well as his shyness with the opposite sex? With a little help, maybe.
The audience will have an opportunity to vote each night for their favorite and the winner will be posted on our website.
