On Your ACT Stage ...

I Know You Are
September 12-21 - I Know You Are But What Am I?

From popular local playwright Everett Newton (creator of "Taxidermania"), we enter the clever and rather crazy world of Dr. Dane Brewer and the members of his therapy group. The state board of medicine threatens to revoke Dr. Brewer's license, and the situation looks bleak for the members of the group who rely on him. A hilarious romp through the universe as seen by some truly--unique--characters! A wonderful and amusing story you're sure to enjoy.

$15 ($12 for members).
Bad Seed
By Maxwell Anderson
from the novel by William March
Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York
September 12-21 - The Bad Seed

Can an evil nature be passed from generation to generation? School child Rhoda seems to be sent from heaven, but there appears an occasional dark side that pops up when things don't go her way. Rhoda's mother comes to the realization that some bad things that have happened may well be the responsibility of her daughter, and that she may have to take matters into her own hands. Tense and filled with surprising plot twists, "The Bad Seed" is a must see.

$15 ($12 for members).
