Come see a great comedy called Looking Glass Land. “This award-winning stage adaptation by renowned playwright James DeVita takes Lewis Carroll’s original Through the Looking Glass and literally runs with it. This wild adaptation highlights and improvises on the pure, unadulterated fun of the story. The play still retains some of Carroll’s deeper meanings, but what it possesses most of all is a huge helping of unabashed silliness! This delightful romp through Alice’s looking glass land retains all of the familiar characters then introduces dozens of new ones:  a baseball team, a gospel man called The Responsibilities, a train conductor, a peanut salesman, detectives, a Miss America pageant, star-struck tourists, plastic light saber wielding knights and much more.”

“Five very different bridesmaids find themselves hiding together in an upstairs bedroom, hoping to escape the wedding reception of a bride that — they soon realize — none of them really like! There is Meredith, the rebellious little sister of the bride; Frances a highly religious, but sweet cousin; Mindy, a blunt, good-hearted lesbian who is the sister of the groom; Georgeanne, a friend from high school whose marriage is falling apart; and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose pessimism and doubts about men are proved false when she meets Tripp Davenport, an usher at the wedding. In this cramped bedroom above the wedding, these five identically dressed women talk, laugh, argue, cry, console one another, and slowly become friends.”

“Each one of the five women has a very defined personality and is funny and witty at the same time!”

“Faustus, a doctor, rails against the limits of human knowledge. She has learned everything she can learn, or so she thinks, from the conventional academic disciplines. All of these things have left her unsatisfied, so now she turns to magic. A Good Angle and an Evil Angel arrive, representing Faustus’ choice between Christian conscience and the path to damnation. The former advises her to leave off this pursuit of magic, and the latter tempts her. From two fellow scholars, Valdes and Cornelius, Faustus learns the fundamentals of the black arts. She thrills at the power she will have, and the great feats she’ll perform. She summons the devil Mephistophilis. They flesh out the terms of their agreement, with Mephistophilis representing Lucifer. Faustus will sell her soul, in exchange for twenty-four years of power, with Mephistophilis as servant to her every whim.”

“Dr. Faustus is a great story of hubris, temptation, and regret. It has also been told in so many forms over the centuries that it has had a lasting artistic impact on Western culture, especially in literature and drama.”

Can three people really cover thirty-seven Shakespeare plays in less than two hours? This fast-firing comedy does just that as it parodies all of the Shakespeare plays (plus the sonnets!) with only three performers in two acts. This play is full of energy as the characters run across the stage and keep you guessing how they will pull off the next play.

“If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!”

“Travel around the world and explore forgotten myths and unusual legends in eight fast-paced and hilarious tales! Guided by a band of roaming gypsies, the audience is transported from the ancient Far East, where a hero must kill a giant centipede to save a dragon king, to the Russian countryside, where a poor orphan must defeat three witches who stole his grandfather’s eyes. Always quirky, and sometimes bizarre, these eight tales are filled with magic, mystery, and morals.”
