Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’ messages of kindness, tolerance and love come vibrantly to life.

Poinsettia vs. the Christmas Cactus: A Yuletide Smackdown

All is not calm as the Christmas decorations get into a ruckus over their places on the holiday pecking order. Poinsettia and the Christmas Cactus skirmish over which is on the top of the botanical Christmas list.

A Christmas Chaos

By Michael Wehrli

A fast and frenetic comedy that takes the audience on a roller coaster ride through Charles Dickens’ classic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge. Our intrepid band of hearty actors bravely attempt to present the entire story in only ten minutes! All the actors play multiple roles including one who plays both Bob and Mrs. Cratchit (at the same time)! Wild and hilarious, this short play manages to satirize both the classic story and theatrical backstage mayhem at the same time.

Oy Vey Maria

It’s a not-so-silent night when Mary’s Jewish mother shows up at the manger.

Christmas Breaks

By Patrick Gabridge

Christmas is the perfect time to be in love, or so Marcie thought. When her boyfriend surprises her with a variety of gifts to help her deal with him breaking up with her, Marcie’s holiday plans take a nosedive. But endings can bring on new beginnings in this clever comedy about exes, neuroses, and the power of poetry.

A Tree in the House

An older dog explains to a puppy why his owners have brought a tree into the house and decorated it with chew toys.

All in a Day’s Work
