Upcoming Drama Productions

Aliens vs. Cheerleaders (One Act Show) Performances October 20 & 22

Written by Qui Nguyen

Directed by Day Strickland

After aliens abduct and scan two unsuspecting teenagers’ brains to find their leader, they are led to Principal Forsman of Saint Valley High School. Little do the power-hungry aliens suspect that the school’s cheerleading squad is full of brains, brawn, and butt-kicking skills. But when the cheerleaders are overpowered, it’s up to hipster outsider Molly and her nerdy sidekick Lewis to step in and save the planet. This show will be entered into a One Act Competition at the end of October.  

Haunted Theatre - Mad in Wonderland Performances October 26, 27 and 28

Directed by Ana Gonzalez and Sarah Givens

Tickets for Haunted Theater are $5 at the door. Bring 5 lbs. of food for a MUST Ministries canned food drive and get a second ticket free!

A gateway to the whimsical world of Wonderland has appeared and The Queen of Hearts requests an audience with you! Your trusty guide will lead you through the unhinged land while you come across some familiar faces along the way. But heed our warning; the residents of this world are acting stranger than usual. Something malicious is taking over Wonderland and doesn’t appreciate your stay. So, if you dare to accept the Queen’s invitation, remember to keep your eyes open. Insanity is lurking in every corner… and is sure to be after you.

For complete details please see Drama website
