Reefer Madness

Inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence. You won't be able to resist the spoofy fun of REEFER MADNESS. The addictive and clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like 'Down at the Ol' Five and Dime' and the Vegas-style 'Listen to Jesus, Jimmy,' featuring J.C. Himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels. This dynamic show will go straight to your head! REEFER MADNESS is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary. It contains adult humor, religious parody, and drug use, as well as suggested violence and sexual explicitness. It therefore may be inappropriate for younger performers and audiences

MATURE audiences only - 18 yrs+

Nun Puncher: A Rock Opera

As a recent graduate of the Happy Buddha's Online Course for Complete and Total Nunnery, Sister Sandi Spagnanowicz is excited to begin her new career as a nun. However, all is not as it seems at the Heavenly Sisters of Bovina Convent, the East Texas convent to which she's been assigned. Sandi soon learns that evil Mother Superior, the convent's leader and drummer extraordinaire, has, through the hypnotic beats of her drumming, brainwashed the convent's caretaker and two monks from a neighboring monastery to join her heavy metal band, Nun Puncher. Thus begins her quest to record an album and distribute it worldwide so that she can rule the world with her hypnotic drum beats.

Will Sandi be able to stop Mother Superior's bid for world domination, or will Mother Superior ultimately control us all? The answer to this, and many other scintillating questions await in the world premiere of this melodic heavy metal rock opera, with original music performed live by local band, Nun Puncher!

Big River

Twain’s timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from the novel-the Widow Douglas and her stern sister, Miss Watson; the uproarious King and Duke, who may or may not be as harmless as they seem; Huck’s partner in crime, Tom Sawyer, and their rowdy gang of pals; Huck’s drunken father, the sinister Pap Fin; the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her trusting family. Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.
