Soup du Jour

Directed by Joni Metras

New York City, 1939. There's a mystery at Bailey's restaurant, one of Gotham's top dining establishments,
and it's up to Katharine Hawks, the New York Herald-Tribune's Pulitzer Prize-winning ace reporter, to solve it!
J. P. Thompson, editor of the struggling Herald-Tribune is desperately searching for a way to increase circulation.
Across town, Stewart Bailey is simultaneously mourning the death of his father and preparing for his imminent
wedding to socialite golddigger Tiffany Vandervanden. Stewart has just inherited his father's restaurant, the
success of which was built on its famous soup du jour. There's only one catch: Stewart's father took the recipe
with him to the grave, and Stewart, along with everyone else in the story, winds up searching wildly for the missing
recipe. Editor Thompson decides he, too, must have the secret recipe to solve his paper's circulation problems.
Enter Katharine Hawks to save the day. Sent undercover as a waitress to Bailey's restaurant to find the recipe for
the famed soup, Katharine winds up losing her heart to Stewart Bailey. Once she learns Stewart has lost the recipe,
Katharine is in a real dilemma: Career or love? Winning songs, lightning-fast dialogue in the Tracy-Hepburn
tradition, and a great plot are the delicious ingredients of this delightful tribute to 1930s screwball comedies.

The Coloring Book

by Bradley Walton

Directed by Gina Metras

Animals in a coloring book are thrilled when a little boy begins to embellish them with crazy colors
and off-the-wall flourishes. But when the boy's older sister begins coloring other pages in more life like
hues, social divisions begin to form and friendships are challenged. Will existence as they know it break down?
The exuberance and wonder of a picture book meet Animal Farm in this play that offers thoughtful entertainment
for performers and audiences of all ages.

The Fall of the House of Usher

Adapted for the stage by

Tim Kelly

From the Classic Tale by

Edgar Allen Poe

Directed by Marty BlackEagle

Roderick Usher, once a happy young man about to be married, and his beautiful sister Madelaine
have become victims to the gloom and poisonous atmosphere of the decaying old mansion in which they
live. When Madelaine appears near death, the doctor warns Usher not to bury her until he is certain
that she is dead. The ensuing horror grips every viewer in its icy chill. The Fall of the House of Usher
abounds in moments of haunting beauty—such as the ghostly waltz in the Usher family crypt and a visit by
the brother's loving sweetheart, Lenore. The play also features moments of chilling horror when Madelaine
forces aside the lid of her coffin while a hooded figure roams the halls in search of escape. Whenever
Poe's horrific visions threaten to terrify the audience completely, there is always a light moment to compensate.
