Its cast and production crew are seasoned, well-rounded, multi-talented individuals who are dedicated to sharing their passion with the public and supporting the arts in Maryland.” – Shannon Stiffer – Maryland Theater Guide
Boeing, Boeing”…is a non-stop laughfest, performed by one of the best ensembles I have seen on any local stage.”5 Stars- Joel Markowitz –  DC Metro Theater Arts

An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe adapted by Robert Mason

Based on the stories by Edgar Allan Poe

Enter the wonderfully creepy world of Edgar Allan Poe with six faithful adaptations of some of his most haunting works. From old favorites such as The Cask of Amontillado and The Tell-Tale Heart to lesser known gems like The Oblong Box and The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether, this collection of short plays represents Poe at his most horrifying.

Cast – 4 f, 8 m, 2 either (12-52 actors possible: 4-16 f, 8-43 m)

The Cave Dwellers by William Saroyan

The Cave Dwellers explores the adventures of some homeless people who are camping out on the stage of an abandoned theatre that is about to be pulled down for a housing project. One who calls herself “the Queen’ is the ruin of a former actress. “The King’ used to be a celebrated clown. “The Duke’ was once a prizefight champion. “The Girl’ (she is too young to have been famous at anything) is a homeless, frightened wretch who comes in off the streets. Although food is scarce and the cold is congealing, the characters have glowing spirits and wonderful memories of their triumphant days. Humor, grace, innocence and improvisation distinguish this Broadway classic.

“One of the most enchanting stories he has ever told.” – The New York Times

Cast – 9m, 5f

The Reluctant Dragon by Ed Monk, Based on the story by Kenneth Grahame, TYA

In the zany village of Veesaldorf, a young girl named Charity is more interested in fairy tales than her daily farm chore of painting the pigs. To her delight, her dreams of adventure come true one day when she finds a poetry-loving dragon in the woods. But her new friendship is quickly threatened when the frightened villagers call for Sir Wombat to slay the dragon. Can Charity come up with a plan to save her friend and convince the village that dragons are peaceful creatures?

Cast – 6 female, 5 male
