When none of the scheduled entertainers arrive, it’s up to three quick-witted church members at St. Everybody's Non-Denominational Universalist Church to perform the entire Christmas Variety Show by themselves!  An irreverent yet heartwarming romp through tradition, bursting with festive, slapstick fun.

Men on Boats

Written by Jaclyn Backhaus

Directed by Kevin Keaveney

  

Ten explorers. Four boats. One Grand Canyon. A swashbuckling comedy (which casts women in the roles of the male explorers) to tell the true(ish) history of an 1869 expedition, when a one-armed captain and a crew of insane yet loyal volunteers set out to chart the course of the Colorado River.

The People’s Temple

Written by Leigh Fondakowski

Directed by Rasa Fournier

  

In 1978, 914 people met a tragic demise at the jungle settlement known as Jonestown. This tale of faith, community, and survival weaves together gospel music, archival materials, and interviews with survivors in a quest to make sense of the inexplicable —and perhaps to find healing in the process.

Lasso of Truth

Written by Carson Kreitzer

Directed by Kevin Keaveney

  

Wonder Woman’s real-life origin story! William Marston, inventor of both the lie detector and the Wonder Woman comic, shares a blended family with two strong, forward-thinking and iconoclastic women who serve as the inspiration for our preeminent female superhero. A smart, seductive, wild ride of a play that explores whether we can ever know the truth of another’s heart – or our own?
