Doubtful, the streetwise Gretel follows in pursuit of her dreamer brother. When they come across a candy house, their bond and beliefs are put to the test until love saves the day. This story is brought to musical life through the talents of The Grimm Brothers Band performing a live rock and roll score. Nationally produced playwright Ernie Nolan teams up with GRAMMY -nominated 'kindie' artist Justin Roberts to create a wickedly delicious musical treat for the entire family.

It's hard to tell the difference between right and wrong in this tragicomic tale of dysfunction taking place in a small Northeast Georgia town where private desires and public morality collide.

When a powerful agent known only as "Captain" offers up starlets Matchbox, Pretty Sexy and The Vil for Fennigan's latest picture, the story takes a twisted turn through back-alley motels and murder scenes.

Racquetball is played. They're celebrating Christmas...in August. Set in small-town Indiana in the 1980s, this quirky & slightly sinister tale of cops, cancer and Christmas cheer is one holiday event you won't want to miss. Didn't catch Buddy Cop 1?

Pinafore spins the seaworthy tale of a gentlemanly captain who's arranged for his daughter to marry the First Lord of the Admiralty -- although she's already in love with a common sailor on her father's ship. The show's signature hummable tunes include "I'm Called Little Buttercup," "When I Was a Lad" and "I Am the Captain of the Pinafore."
