FALL PLAY,  The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,  (cast size 20-25)

Washing Irving’s classic Halloween “spook story” comes to the stage with spine-tingling humor and fright. New school master, Ichabod Crane, arrives in the superstitious small town known as Sleepy Hollow. He is quickly caught up in the secrets and unsetting mythology of the village as he sets out to prove himself worthy of a bride … only to find himself walking into a much more sinister future.  Are the legends to be believed; if so, which one??

MUSICAL,  Matilda,  (cast size is generally 30-40) 

Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning musical revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination and the inspiring story of those who dream of a better life. Matilda has wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents – plus, her school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda and her schoolmates have courage and cleverness in equal amounts; could they topple their bullies once they team up?

SPRING PLAY,  12 Angry Jurors  (cast size 13)

Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city teen. As the dozen try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy’s fate.
