When John and Tina decide to elope to Vegas, they are hoping for a calm and quiet ceremony...away from their crazy family and friends. But their secret is not as well kept as they'd hoped. First, John's party-ready friend Hugh shows up, hoping to give John the bachelor party he never had. This sparks a series of events which leads to call girls, interpretive dance, smugglers, mistaken identities, secret agents, and four identical sets of luggage. This off-the-wall farce will keep you guessing and laughing all the way to the end.

Please note that this show contains partial nudity and sexually suggestive content.

If you thought you knew the story of "The Princess and The Pea," you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you'll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

Once Upon a Mattress is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals.

Vanda is determined to land the lead in a new play based on the classic erotic novel, Venus in Furs. During her audition, she gets caught up in an electrifying game of cat & mouse with the director, wherein the lines between fantasy & reality, actor & character, dominance & submission begin to blur. David Ives' Venus in Fur is a darkly comic examination of sexual power dynamic, objectification, masochism, & the destabilizing nature of sexual desire.

A young Venetian, Bassanio, needs a loan of three thousand ducats so that he can woo Portia, a wealthy heiress. He approaches his friend Antonio, a merchant, but Antonio is short of money because all of his wealth is invested in his trading fleet, which is currently at sea. He goes to a Jewish moneylender, Shylock, who hates Antonio because of Antonio’s antisemitic behaviour towards him. We are proud to feature an original score composed by local musician Tom Nagy in this adaptation.

After a fatal accident, Agnes comes to the uncomfortable realization that she knew nothing about her nerdy little sister, Tilly. To fix this, she recruits Tilly's friend Chuck to help her play through a Dungeons & Dragons module that Tilly had created. Within the game, Agnes and Tilly go on a quest together  through a world full of magic and monsters, giving Agnes a chance to learn about her sister’s life and to finally be able to say goodbye. She Kills Monsters offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.
