THE INTERNET IS DISTRACT — OH LOOK A KITTEN! (FULL LENGTH VERSION)
Micah only has forty-five minutes to finish her paper on The Great Gatsby. She just needs to check a few facts on the internet first. Unfortunately, the web is a nefariously wacky place where boxing cats, Russian spies, and competitive streaming services threaten to take over Micah’s schoolwork, or worse. Will she finish her paper and escape with her life before the school bell rings? A high-octane comedy that explores the rabbit hole of distraction we all go down every time we go online. (A one-act version of this play is also available.)
THE INCOMPLETE LIFE AND RANDOM DEATH OF MOLLY DENHOLTZ
When somebody dies, what’s the right thing to say? What are you supposed to do? How are you supposed to feel? Nobody really knows the answers to these questions, and they hang in the air of a high school when a student dies suddenly in a car accident. As the memorial service approaches and rumors fill the hallways, everyone navigates how to grieve a girl they knew in very different ways: a now-distant elementary school friend struggles to write a meaningful eulogy; two exes tentatively share memories at an unexpected meeting; an acquaintance searches for the way to process some more complicated memories; and a girl who just lost her best friend is badgered by a barista on the wrong day.
EVERY US ELECTION EVER!
Presidential elections got ya down? Feel like they used to be respectful and dignified and not such a mess? Well you’re wrong! In this madcap play you’ll get to see every presidential election this country has ever had with all the dirty tricks, low blows, and unqualified candidates the U.S. is known for! With songs, parodies, and a dancing Richard Nixon! A comedy that proves politics can be educational and entertaining!
12 INCOMPETENT JURORS
When a man is accused of abducting half a dozen cats, it’s a simple open-and-shut case until Juror #8, a wannabe lawyer, attempts to convince his fellow jurors that the “Cat Burglar” is innocent. Will he be able to sway the other jury members? Or will they side with Juror #3, the only sane man in the room?
“This laugh-filled, absurdist farce indicts our willingness to be swayed by the most outlandish of arguments.”
“The jury is in on this particular production this is a winner! Go see it!” “Well written, well executed, with a great ensemble.”

LAST DAY OF SCHOOL
On the final day of classes at Rochester High School, a renegade student takes over the morning announcements and proposes that everyone do something bold. Or unexpected. Or brave. Or stupid. The point is, you may not have another chance, so now’s the time to stop being a wallflower and kiss the girl (or guy!). To let your enemies know that you have always hated their guts. Or to do something as simple as climb the rope in gym without throwing up. Through a series of interconnected scenes, misconceptions, grudges, and secret crushes come out into the open in hilarious and surprisingly touching ways. A comedy with a lot of heart, and no regrets.

BAD AUDITIONS BY BAD ACTORS
Newbie director Carol has one day to find the leads for a community theater production of Romeo and Juliet. But what seems like a simple task proves impossible when the pool of auditioners includes extreme method actors, performers who just don’t know how to channel their rage, and one woman who may or may not think she’s a cat. This hilarious comedy will bring you to the last place you’d ever want to be…behind the doors of a casting session.
ACTORS ARE F@#%ING STUPID
At a final callback for an unnamed (but probably obvious) MTV movie, 4 actors will do anything to impress the producer and get the coveted starring roles that could change their lives. A dark comedy about working in the movie industry. 4 actors. 2 roles. No mercy. And no room for dignity.
