Big Bad provides actors and audiences of any age with a smart and wickedly funny play that lets the audience determine the outcome of the play! The most notorious criminal in the fairy-tale world, Big Bad Wolf, is being slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the countless quirky characters he has wronged. Now, the two greatest legal minds in the Enchanted Forest - the Evil Stepmother and the Fairy Godmother - will clash (on live Court TV, no less, with Sydney Grimm as commentator!) in a trial that will be remembered forever after.

Hank, who has been studying astronomy, predicts an eclipse of the sun and is hailed a great wizard. He is knighted 'Sir Boss' and sets about modernizing Camelot, complete with telephones, bicycles, and T-shirts.

"CRITIC'S CHOICE! Funny and thought-provoking! Superb performances! Finely-tuned staging...hilariously theatrical!" - Los Angeles Times

A founding father, a Victorian novelist and a Russian revolutionary walk into a...stop me if you've heard this one. Thomas Jefferson(yes, that one), Charles Dickens(the very same) and Count Leo Tolstoy(who else?) are brought together in a blistering battle of wits. This whip-smart comedy examines what happens when great men of history are forced to repeat it.

Directed by Pam Boepple


The classic animated television special A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS comes to life in this faithful stage adaptation, in which Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts Gang discover the true meaning of Christmas.

When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism he sees among everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but this proves to be a frustrating endeavor. When an attempt to restore the proper holiday spirit with a forlorn little Christmas fir tree fails, he needs Linus' help to discover the real meaning of Christmas.
