Live Entertainment in an Intimate Victorian Theater
“Jack of Hearts”
Written and Directed by J.J. Gatesman
"It’s such a refreshing novelty to see a wild west plot make it into
a local production... The dramatic angle of action stories is where
the power of the genre TRULY rests and that’s vividly
brought to the stage in this production."

Jack of Hearts is a revenge play set in a steampunk world of the wastes, a futuristic dystopia that emulates the old west. The action centers around the Heart's Club, a brothel/saloon, and its denizens who find themselves caught up in a conflict between the mace gang, the capital, and the owner, Jack Heart. Themes of love, loyalty, humanity, and truth are tested, broken, and rebuilt.
Based on a play by Michelle L. Vacca

Music & Lyrics by Margaret James
It's Christmas time and the Sheldon Family is getting ready for the big holiday. Young Virginia is the most excited of the children even though she's teased about her firm belief in Santa Claus by her older sister and brother. But then there's the eminent visit of Great Aunt Winifred! She's a damper to any holiday, but especially Christmas. When father is inspired to write a special story for young Virginia, could some Christmas Magic be on the way?

“The Gin Game” by Donald L. Coburn
This Pulitzer prize winning play uses a card game as a metaphor for life and living. Weller Martin plays solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home, where he meets Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self righteous lady. Soon they discover their mutual dislike for the home and enjoy gin rummy — so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives to each other.
Flanagan’s Wake is the hilarious interactive Irish wake that transports you to Graplin, County Sligo, Ireland, where you join the villagers in the telling of tales, singing of songs, and mourn the passing of one of your own: Flanagan.
A Thriller in Two Acts, by Ira Levin
Sidney Bruhl, a once-successful writer of Broadway thrillers, is struggling to overcome a string of failed shows and a shortage of funds. When he receives a script from a student in the seminar he has been teaching at a nearby college — a thriller which Sidney instantly recognizes as a possible Broadway hit — he devises, with his wife's help, a plan to collaborate with the student. The younger man quickly accepts Sidney's offer. Thereafter suspense mounts steadily as the story twists and turns with devilish cunning.
