The one-act plays:


"Dinner With the MacGuffins," by Chris Sheppard & Jeff Grove

  • Directed by Shelly Werner & Joe Villalba
  • What seems like an ordinary family doing ordinary things one evening turns very quickly into a whirlwind of secret agents, suspicions, and noisy cell phone interruptions.


"10 Ways to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse," by Don Zolidis

  • Directed by Molly Knight & Payton Mead
  • If (and when) the zombie apocalypse happens, do you know what to do? Broken down into 10 options, each scenario is played out to humorous results.



"The Seussification of a Midsummer Night's Dream," by Pete Bloedel

  • Directed by Paige Corwin & Ella Robertson
  • Sure, you think that you know Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," but you'll soon be bamboozled by this theatrical team! The characters are here, And you may know their names, but the words that they say don't all sound quite the same. There are a few changes, and the story is loose. In fact all the zaniness may be closest to Seuss!
