Help Santa Save Christmas, Again
Written and Directed by Bill Baker
A play for children of all ages to enjoy.
We follow the action at the North Pole in the month leading up to Christmas. Santa struggles with the new electronic system the elves installed, to get rid of all the paper lists. RJ, (Rudolf, Jr.) son of Dancer and Rudolf, likes to play tricks on folks, including Santa, and gets into trouble. RJ wants to lead the sleigh someday; but, he doesn’t like the bitter peppermint oil that will keep his nose shining bright. Everything is going great this year and everything is ready on Christmas Eve, until a big, last minute crisis. Can you help Santa save Christmas, again? Suitable for everyone.

The St. Paddy’s Day Escapade
Written and directed by Teresa Wentzel
It’s 1960 and Liam Fitzpatrick owns a shoe repair shop in south Chicago. He thinks of himself as a leprechaun…plays the flute, cobbles shoes, even sports a green jacket and red beard. And what a prankster he is! But someone in the neighborhood doesn’t like Liam’s hijinks and puts an end to them! Is it Norah, the gruff waitress across the street? Or Aiden, his bitter cousin who’s carrying a grudge? And then there’s Kayleigh, a pious housekeeper who still suffers from a broken heart? And don’t forget Rocco, a Chicago alderman, who has a lengthy history with Liam and plenty of resentments towards the annoying cobbler. Finally, there’s Paula, a longtime friend who’s being blackmailed by Liam! Who’s gonna kill him? Come join the St. Paddy’s Day festivities (or as we like to call it…the murder of the year)!

The Butler Did It
By Tim Kelley
Directed by Sharon Spurrier
This comedy parodies every English mystery play ever written, but it has a decidedly American flair. Miss Maple, a dowager with a reputation for “clever” weekend parties, invites a group of detective writers to eerie Ravenswood Manor on Turkey Island where they are to impersonate their fictional characters. The hostess arranged all sorts of amusing incidents, then, a real murder takes place. Miss Maple offers an immense reward to the “detective” who can bring the killer to justice. The zany would-be sleuths trip over clues and each other! Laughs collide with thrills, as the true killer is unmasked, and almost everyone turns out to be someone else. Suitable for everyone. Produced by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
