"Fairy Tale Courtroom"
June 8 at 2pm &

PLAY SYNOPSIS: A hilarious comedy that shows the other side of several familiar fairy tales, when two of their biggest villains, the Big Bad Wolf and the Wicked Witch, are brought to trial. Both the Wolf and the Witch have been frolicking from fairy tale to fairy tale, wreaking havoc as they try to prevent the general public from living happily ever after. Hear the personal accounts of what happened, told in testimonies and flashback sequences, from characters such as Snow White, Dorothy, Sleeping Beauty, the Three Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, and many others, including the Witch and the Wolf themselves, as each trial unfolds. The audience is the jury, so each trial has two endings, depending on the verdict.

WRCT - HOPO Summer Youth #2 in the Mainstage Theatre
August 11 at 7pm &
August 12 at 2pm
PLAY SYNOPSIS: An "Electric" New Comedy, reminiscent of classic 1950's and 60's sitcoms, Toasted revolves around the broken marriage of 60's couple, Ralph and Donna Millard. Fed up with each other, they want out. But when an opportunity to completely erase the marriage appears, they take it: Their neighbor, an inventor, has created a time machine - out of a Toaster. So the couple time travels to a not-so-distant 1947 to undo their past, and the future of their younger counterparts. The question remains, however... What happens if too much is changed? And will the Millards like the results of their alterated 1962?
Full of physical comedy, whittyness, irony, and the occasional piece of burnt Toast, Toasted has something the whole family will love, and maybe just what struggling love needs to keep from getting stale.
