The Canterbury Tales by Burton Bumgarner (Intermediate Group)
November 2016
Many believe that Chaucer’s literary masterpiece revolutionized English literature.  Now you can revolutionize the study of this challenging literature by tossing in a good helping of Monty Python-styled humor to create this incredibly silly yet educational comedy.  You’ll meet many of the pilgrims whose tales are most likely to be studied in high school (along with a few Thanksgiving pilgrims that ended up in the wrong play!), including the knight, the miller, the parson, the pardoner, the nun’s priest and the friar.  Even the wife of Bath has cleaned up her act for this adaptation and is now a nagging woman who sells self-help DVDs!  The miller, too, makes an appearance, though nobody wants to hear anything he has to say!
 

 
Christmas at Pumpernickel Junction by Claire Senko (Junior Company)
December 2016
A heart warming locally written comedy that will leave your heart warm and your Christmas spirits high! 

 

 


 
The Laramie Project (Senior High/ Post High School Company)
February 2017
In October 1998, a twenty-one-year-old student at the University of Wyoming was kidnapped, severely beaten, and left tied to a fence in the middle of the prairie outside Laramie, Wyoming. His bloody, bruised, and battered body was not discovered until the next day, and he died several days later in an area hospital. His name was Matthew Shepard, and he was the victim of this assault because he was gay. Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project made six trips to Laramie over the course of a year and a half, in the aftermath of the beating and during the trial of the two young men accused of killing Shepard. They conducted more than 200 interviews with the people of the town. Some people interviewed were directly connected to the case, while others were citizens of Laramie, and the breadth of the reactions to the crime is fascinating. Kaufman and Tectonic Theater members have constructed a deeply moving theatrical experience from these interviews and their own experiences in Laramie. THE LARAMIE PROJECT is a breathtaking collage that explores the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
 
 
 
The Princess and the Pea (Full Company)
June 2017
An ingenious and hilarious stage version of the very short story written by Hans Christian Anderson. This play includes an expandable cast of over the top zany characters.
