SUMMER SEASON 2018!
As a part of our 2018 Summer Season we are producing 3 Main Stage productions, another touring production, summer workshops, and so much more!
Based on the story of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”
Adapted by Justin Gray, Michael Pantone, Angela Polite, and Leore Riven
Directed by Chelsea Hedderig
Griffin and Sarah were childhood friends and are now in Middle School, but recently have drifted apart. Sarah has a reputation of being a ‘goody two shoes’, who gets straight A’s and is the official (and only) School News Reporter. Griffin, on the other hand, is edgier, more popular, and constantly gets detention for her misconduct. Realizing that detention hasn’t changed Griffin’s attitude, Principal Wilson assigns Griffin to help Sarah with the School News. Determined to get a lot of readers and ‘likes’ on the School News Instagram account, Griffin comes up with a sneaky plan and the two girls start posting fake news. While Griffin sneaks around and starts stealing other people’s belongings, the girls post on Instagram about a thief that’s been going around and terrorizing the school. When their scheme gets somebody else in trouble, Griffin and Sarah learn the importance of telling the truth and how their actions can severely affect other people.
#CryWolf will be running June 21 – 23, 28 – 30 at 7PM at the Guyer Art Barn. Tickets $10.
The Last Return Of The Fuzzballs
Brought to you by the team behind I’ve Got a Bad Feeling About This: A Tribute to George Lucas, Laugh It Up Fuzzball: A New Hope!, Fuzzball Awakens, and last summer’s spectacular knock-out production Cams Strike Back! The Last Return of The Fuzzballs picks up, right where the previous production left off, with Matt turned to the Dark Side and beginning a new set of Star Wars tribute shows with the evil Greg. Will Brett save Matt from certain doom and unfreeze Justin from his carbonite prison? Will the Cams realize the error of their ways and FINALLY receive their college credit? Will the audience get EVEN MORE glow sticks to throw in the faces of our heroes?! Find out this summer as New Classics and Laugh It Up Fuzzball present a fitting final tribute show set to the classics Star Wars film, The Return of the Jedi, with a little extra silliness mixed in.
The Last Return of the Fuzzballs will be running July 12 – 14, 19 – 21 at 7PM at the Guyer Art Barn. Tickets $10.
Feathers and Teeth
Written by Charise Castro Smith
Directed by Emily Tullock
Home-sweet-home turns into a haunted house for thirteen-year-old Chris when Carol—her father’s new fiancée—moves in. Struggling with the recent death of her mother, Chris is convinced Carol is evil, but she just can’t persuade Dad. When a mysterious, potentially dangerous but kind of cute creature is found in the family’s backyard, Chris assumes it’s a sign from above to eliminate Carol once and for all. This imaginative, bone-chilling, and wildly funny play brings the notion of dysfunctional family drama to sensationally scary heights.
Feathers and Teeth will be running August 2 – 4, 9 – 11 at 7PM at the Guyer Art Barn. Tickets $10.
Written & Directed by Justin Jay Gray
Presented in conjunction with the Sandwich Arts Alliance Performing Arts Group
Eva is a young, dedicated music therapist who believes above all in the healing power of music. However, as she faces her first assignment in hospice care, she finds she might be in deeper than she ever realized. Through weekly sessions she’ll try to help Lillian face her imminent passing, all the while juggling Lillian’s high strung daughter Anne, free spirited nurse Danny, and domineering residency supervisor Burgess. Along the way she’ll come to understand more than ever the true impact that music can have on us, both in this life and the next. Emotionally moving and beautifully written, you won’t want to miss the play that the Cape Cod Times picked as one of their favorites of 2016.
Songbird will be running July 27th and 28th at 7:30pm and July 29th at 2pm at Sandwich Town Hall, 130 Main St, Sandwich, MA. Tickets are $18, $10 for students. Purchase tickets in advance at www.sandwichartsalliance.org.
