Directed by Christopher Gladysz
The play is set in an English country house in the 1920s, and deals with the four eccentric members of the Bliss family and their outlandish behaviour when they each unknowingly invite a guest to spend the weekend. Over the top and theatrical in their actions, the Bliss family delight in winding each other up and provoking a dramatic reaction from each other. As the weekend wears on, each guest pairs off with the wrong person with dramatic and hilarious effects.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Directed by Judy Brewster, musical direction by Nate Brewster, choreography by Brandy Mae Hughes, produced by Gina Stanton and Jenna Isabella
Based on Charles Dickens's final & unfinished novel, this musical tells the story of Edwin Drood, his uncle, John Jasper, choirmaster and opium addict, who is in love with his pupil, Rosa Bud. Later Drood disappears under mysterious circumstances. Unfortunately, Mr. Dickens died before completing the novel, so we leave it up to the audience to vote and decide how the show should end! No two shows are the same - who is the detective? Who is secretly in love? WHO IS THE KILLER? You decide!
