“Hoodie” Directed by Ellie Perra

Middle schoolers face a tornado of questions every day. What do I wear? What if I wear the wrong thing? What is she wearing? What do I look like? Stop looking at me! Hoodie examines image and appearance in the vignette style and poses what may be the most difficult question of all – Do I stay in the clump or do I stand alone?

“All By Myself” Directed by Grace Hiltner

Seven years alone on an island after his shipwreck have driven Larry to the edge of sanity, but that's nothing compared to the shock of discovering he's not - and never has been - alone

“Stressed” Directed by Carter Johnson and CarolAnn Frederickson

For Alex, it's school. For Josh, it's his girlfriend. For Carmen, it's dealing with her coach. And Mindy's frustrated with her parents. Stress is driving this quartet crazy - so much so they can't stop talking about it.

”A Murdered Mystery” Directed by Taylor Koehler

This play opens with the butler, holding a gun, standing over the body of Steve Walters. The butler, John, assures us that things are not what they seem and that this is not a simple case of “the butler did it.” Then other suspects...: Steve’s business partner, his ex-fiancée, his current fiancée, and her friend. But, that's when it falls apart!
