It’s a heckuva day when you lose your cat and your boyfriend all in one day – and when that day is your birthday, that really takes the cake!
Poor Cindy works in a laundromat, and is so depressed she’s about to do herself in with the help of a washer agitator when two guardian angels show up to help her iron out her romantic problems.
Loaded with good clean fun, bubbling energy, and some of the greatest hits of the ‘60’s, including “These Boots Are Made For Walking”, “It’s My Party, “You Don’t Own Me” and many more, “Suds” will have you swaying in your seat. Solid gold nostalgia…musical fun at its best!

The Murder Room is a hilarious spoof of classic British mysteries. Shortly after marrying Edgar, Mavis has had enough! Failing to poison Edgar with his nightly cocoa (which kills the cat instead), she resorts to shooting him in cold blood, with plans to inherit his wealth. But chaos and complications reign when it is discovered that the gunshots were blanks and that Edgar’s body has vanished!
“Delightful…constant humor…A good mixture of Agatha Christie, Monty Python, and Abbot and Costello!” – Canon, Memphis

Based on Sam Raimi’s 80’s cult classic films, Evil Dead: The Musical unearths the old familiar story: boy and friends take a weekend getaway at abandoned cabin, boy expects to get lucky, boy unleashes ancient evil spirit, friends turn into Candarian Demons, boy fights until dawn to survive. As musical mayhem descends upon this sleepover in the woods, “camp” takes on a whole new meaning with uproarious numbers like “All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons,” “Look Who’s Evil Now” and “Do the Necronomicon.”! Bursting with more farce than a Monty Python skit, Evil Dead: The Musical is a deliciously campy romp!

Just when you thought you’d heard every crazy 9/11 conspiracy theory, a stranger walks into the Yankee Tavern. There, inside the walls of this crumbling New York tavern, a young couple finds themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. Denver’s own Steven Dietz’s acclaimed and already widely produced dramatic thriller – a selection of the National New Play Network’s Continued Life Project – is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind-bending thriller, with a theatrical power that grips you until the final word. What you don’t know can hurt you.
“The play isn’t about what did or didn’t happen; it’s about the agony of uncertainty.” – Miami Herald

Cabaret is the story of young American writer, Clifford Bradshaw, living in Berlin at the dawn of the Nazi era. He becomes infatuated with the giddy, gaudy decadence of the place, epitomized by a sexy, vaguely dangerous nightclub called the Kit Kat Club; in particular he finds himself involved with its chanteuse, sad, flighty Sally Bowles. While Cliff and Sally drift, dreamlike, in this happy but desperate milieu, life outside turns ugly. As time passes, and the Nazi’s power grows, Cliff decides to leave the world of Berlin and the Kit Kat Club behind him, but Sally, believing that “life is a cabaret,” opts to stay behind.
“This combination of brashly sexualized razzle-dazzle, infectious hedonism and hopeful romance is underscored by apprehension that gives way to the inexorable stranglehold of evil.” – The Hollywood Reporter
