"Something wicked this way comes," says one witch as Macbeth approaches. As Macbeth's ambition grows, fueled by the prophecies of the three witches, he and his Lady begin a campaign of devastation and death to secure the throne of Scotland. How far will they go to satisfy the blossoming wickedness in their hearts? If you enjoy Game of Thrones, Macbeth will thrill you. Alan Stanford directs Shakespeare's shortest tragedy.

The Pinchpenny Phantom of the Opera
By Dave Reiser & Jack Sharkey. Gaston, proprietor and star tenor of a tacky opera house, can only afford a chorus of two and one guest soprano per opera. The guest sopranos keep succumbing to ghastly fates such as strangulation, electrocution, enraged bulls, banana peelings underfoot, poison fleas, falling chandeliers and hypothermia. Why? Because the Phantom wants Pristine to star– and at the rate he bumps off her rivals, she'll soon be the only soprano in grand opera!
