SlapDASH Directed by Timothy J. Amrhein

“SLAPDASH” is a fast-paced, funny, “audience-interactive” improv performance in the tradition of "Whose Line is It Anyway?" Two improv teams spontaneously compete to act out hilarious, unscripted scenes as they try to “out-perform” each other in the show where “everything's made up and the points don't matter.”
Oct. 21 - 27

MACBETH By William Shakespeare and Directed by Tom Marion 

One of Shakespeare’s most brutal tragedies, “MACBETH” is a tale that speaks to us today as its story is continually played out on the streets of our own neighborhoods. Desire, betrayal, guilt, and revenge-“MACBETH” follows the actions of an ambitious young man, his lust for success, and his ultimate need to understand himself and what it truly is to be a man.
