Annie and Chris are raising money for the local hospital waiting room and manage to persuade some friends to pose nude for an "alternative" calendar.  The news of the women's charitable venture spreads like wildfire and hordes of press soon descend. The calendar is a success, but Chris and Annie's friendship is put to the test. A hilarious and touching play based on a true story!

Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces -- that is if they don't kill each other first. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family -- Southern-style.

The Laramie Project 
retells the story of Matthew Shepard's murder in a compelling, heartfelt way, but it also tells a town's story and gives us the opportunity to see our town in its reflection. It is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.

This entertaining evening of theatre consists of ten monologues from scorned women who directly address their exes’ new wives and lovers. This show is not recommended for children under the age of 16.

Welcome to the Annual Holiday Variety Show & Christmas Pageant at St. Everybody's Non-Denominational Universalist Church (where all faiths are welcome because we'll believe anything). But wait!  None of the performers have arrived - so three members are must perform the entire show by themselves. An irreverent yet heartwarming trip through the holidays, THE ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS SHOW (ABRIDGED) is festive, funny, physical, family fun as these Three Wise Guys send up and celebrate our favorite holiday traditions.
