SCRIPT TEASE:  Local Playwrights create the first scene. Lightbulb Improv will take it from there. What a Script Tease!

FEMME NOIRE: Nobody gets what they want, but everybody gets what's coming to them. Nothing’s as it seems in this gender swap makeover of the classic film noir genre.

Directed by Heidi Silberman


SUNDAY BRUNCH:  "Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city." - George Burns.  Watch this family saga unfold over the course of a Sunday Brunch.

Directed by Christopher Thomas


LATE NIGHT CABERNET : A rich vintage best enjoyed after dark. A Cabaret show that has only got better with age.

Directed by Lou Maconachie and Amy Crawford


THE ADVENTURERS:  It’s a critical hit! Join these Adventurers on their quest that rests on the fate of the roll of the die. 

Directed by Damien Ashcroft and Brad Hoff
