"JUST LIKE US" A FREE COMMUNITY EVENT.
The second in a series of COMMUNITY CONVERSATIONS will be held February 19 at 7 PM. A co-production with TuYo Theatre
"Just Like Us" tells the story of four high school students whose parents entered this country illegally from Mexico. We meet the girls on the eve of their senior prom in Denver, Colorado. All four of the girls have grown up in the United States, and all four want to live the American dream, but only two have documents. As the girls attempt to make it into college, they discover that only the legal pair sees a clear path forward. Their friendships start to divide along lines of immigration status.
Then the political firestorm begins

FRANKIE & JOHNNY IN THE CLAIR de LUNE
Written by Terrence McNally
Directed by Jennifer Peters
After one too many hurtful relationships, the last thing that waitress Frankie wants is a new man. Yet here she is, lying next to Johnny, a compulsive talker and hopeless romantic, listening to Bach and Debussy on the radio and the sound of a city that never sleeps. Two very normal, very real people sparring, spatting and sparkling their way through all the one hundred and one reasons why people never fall in love.
Written by Ron House, Alan Shearman, Diz White, John Neville Andrews & Derek Cunningham
Directed by Paul Morgavo
The evil Count Otto Von Brunno and his sidekick, Lenya Von Brunno, plot to destroy England by kidnapping an eccentric, absent-minded scientist and steal his new secret formula to manufacture diamonds. The scientist's daughter appeals to the larger-than-life hero, Hugh “Bullshot” Crummond to come to the rescue and save the day in this hilarious 1930's film noir pulp fiction parody.
PUMP BOYS & DINETTES
Book, lyrics & music by John Foley, Mark Hardwick, Debra Monk, Cass Morgan, John Schimmel & Jim Wann
Directed by Leigh Scarritt
A simple Americana-themed country musical about the simple life of simple small-town characters…nothing pretentious, but it is one mighty delicious serving of high octane fun. "Pump Boys and Dinettes" weaves the stories of five guys who work at a gas station and two waitresses who work at the Double Cupp Diner next door.
