Maverick


By Frank Beacham and George Demas

February 6th - March 2nd
Tickets: $30 - $50

Please note: There is no telephone box office for Maverick. Tickets are available online only at the link below, or in person at the theater 30 minutes before the performance.

Thrown into an unforeseen odyssey with Orson Welles, Frank, a young videomaker, is given the creative opportunity he has always wanted… But this big break includes personal and professional challenges that he never imagined. All based on the facts, Maverick is a personal journey, and a unique theatrical rendering of one of filmmaking’s insurgent legends.

All Hallow’s Eve


Written & Directed by Martin P. Robinson
Music by Paul Rudolph

October 2019
Tickets on sale August 1st

Eve and Evan are twins roped into yet another desperately dull Halloween by their parents. Managing to break free, they maraud, pumpkin smash and toilet paper, inadvertently crossing the thin line between worlds on this night of all nights. Enter a house and a demoness who has been lying in wait for just such a pair. A harrowing cat and mouse game ensues with the stakes nothing less than their immortal souls. A tale wrapped up in horror, comedy and blood…and definitely not for young children.
