(OUR SATURDAY KIDS THEATER SERIES) Ever wonder how a simple forest dwelling cat became knighted by a king and beloved by children the world over? Well, we've got the answer in this play filled with charm and energetic humor. The actors and the audience become partners in this "origin" story. 
Aug 18 thru Aug 27
Jul 21 thru Jul 30
Steeped in the atmosphere of black and white film noir movies from the 40’s, this play is not a parody of those movies but rather a deep immersion in the feel of them. We don’t want to give too much away regarding this twisting, turning piece of theatre. However, we will say the show is layered in suspense and mystery, and is rich in laughs. 
Sep 15 thru Sep 24
Best-selling historical romance writer Carla Woods lives in a Gothic mansion and enjoys playing dangerous mind games with her secretaries. One dark and stormy night, a mysterious man shows up at her door. Could this simply be payback from a disgruntled employee, or could it be…love’s destiny? A twisting, turning comedy-thriller.
