Indian Blood, a sentimental comedy - directed by Trace Crawford
A. R. Gurney's charming new memory play Indian Blood, harkens back to another time in both content and form. The setting is Buffaclo, New York, right after World War II. The citizens of the then-13th largest city in America are still riding the war's industrial boom and feeling optimistic about their upstate burg becoming an even more thriving metropolis. Naturally, there are some naysayers; one character calls Buffalo "the mistake on the lake." Aside from him though, everyone is mostly content with their emphatically WASP-ish and privileged way of life. Everyone, that is, except Eddie, the teenage protagonist of the play. Smart and sweet, but also handy with a snarky quip and yearning to rebel, Eddie is on the verge of becoming what his father calls "a wiseguy." Eddie attributes his behavior to his "Indian blood." Inspired by the alleged Native American ancestry in his family's bloodline, Eddie has a ready-made explanation for every anti-social outburst. Before long, everyone in the play can anticipate how Eddie is going to explain his latest social mishap so easily that it becomes a running gag. PG-13

Curious Savage, a comedy - directed by Greg Kembitzky
Mrs. Savage has been left $10 million by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, in spite of the efforts of her grown-up stepchildren to get their hands on it. Knowing the widow's wealth is in negotiable securities, they commit her to a "sanatorium" hoping to "bring her to her senses." But Mrs. Savage is determined to establish a fund to help others realize their hopes and dreams. In the sanatarium, she meets various social misfits. In getting to know them, she realizes that she will find happiness with them and plans to spend the rest of her life as one of them eventhough a doctor tells her there is no reason why she should remain. The self-serving stepchildren are driven to distraction and conspire to trick her. Luckily, her new friends conspire with her to carry out her plans. In the last scene, a farewell party, is a delightful fantasy where each "guest" in the sanatorium realizes at last some hopeless dream for something he was never able to realize.

Zombie Prom, spring musical - directed by Trace Crawford This new script is a 1950s horror comic book brought to life as a musical comedy film. It is a campy, rollicking romp through America's "Atomic Age" and the "Golden Age" of horror comic book Toffee, a Gidget-type, and her "rebel without a cause" boyfriend Jonny. The two meet at Enrico Fermi High School and fall in love, but Principal Delilah Strict (Stalin in pumps and a dress) intervenes, persuading Toffee's parents to force Toffee to break up with Jonny. Tortured by betrayal, Jonny drives his motorcycle to the nearby Francis Gary Powers Nuclear Power Plan and flings himself into a nuclear cooling tower. Guilt ridden and alone, Toffee mourns the loss of her love, until one day Jonny (risen from the dead) returns as a teenage nuclear zombie. He professes his love and tells Toffee that he wants her back. He plans to clean up his act, finish school and take her to the senior prom, if she'll have him. Toffee is racked with indecision; Miss Strict refuses to allow "zombie scum" in her fine educational institution. At the same time, word of this conflict reaches Eddie Flagrante, a slick sensationalist talk show host, who loves a lost cause. Eddie arrives at the school with his film crew to cover the story and what he considers a clear-cut case of civil rights. But once Eddie arrives, we see that he and Miss Strict share a past shrouded with an elusive mystery. As crisis takes hold of the school, the following questions are raised: Will Toffee take Jonny back? Will Miss Strict let Jonny come back to finish school, or whill she cancel Senior Prom thus ruining the most important night in the lives of the students of Enrico Fermi High? Don't miss this new rockin' musical that features a love story and music much like Grease, but the comic horror style of Little Shop of Horrors.PG
