    Action, comedy, romance, rock ‘n roll, and a little bit of opera spice up the story of Sleeping Beauty in this magical, musical twist on the fairy tale classic. At Princess Briar Rose’s christening, wicked Wisteria puts a curse on the newly born baby after realizing she wasn’t invited to the party. Three wacky fairies along with Briar Rose’s overprotective parents, quickly shelter the curious and beautiful princess, but even then the spell finds Briar Rose and puts her to sleep for a hundred years. Only a guitar-playing prince can conquer the curse, waking her with true love and a song.

In the end, Roat turns on his companions and sets his sights on murder.

      The Actor’s Nightmare /Sr. Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You – Comedy double feature by Christopher Durang
      directed by Aaron Breford
      The Actor’s Nightmare is a hilarious spoof that details the plight of a stranger who is suddenly pushed on stage to replace an ailing actor. Inspired by the well known dream experienced by many in the theatre where they are in a play but have no recollection of having been to rehearsal and they know neither the lines nor the plot. Sister Mary… is a biting irreverent and uproariously funny satire that aims it barbs at organized religion, striking home with hilarious results.

          Susy Hendrix is a blind Greenwich Village housewife who becomes the target of three con-men searching for a doll stuffed with heroin, which her husband Sam unwittingly transported from Canada as a favor to a woman who has since been murdered. Complicating matters, is the fact that a little girl living in an apartment upstairs has stolen the doll. Intent on retrieving the heroine, con man, Roat, leads his companion of thugs into thinking they will be rich if they find the doll. In the end, Roat turns on his companions and sets his sights on murder.

          The Actor’s Nightmare /Sr. Mary Ignatius Explains It All For You – Comedy double feature by Christopher Durang
          directed by Aaron Breford
          The Actor’s Nightmare is a hilarious spoof that details the plight of a stranger who is suddenly pushed on stage to replace an ailing actor. Inspired by the well known dream experienced by many in the theatre where they are in a play but have no recollection of having been to rehearsal and they know neither the lines nor the plot. Sister Mary… is a biting irreverent and uproariously funny satire that aims it barbs at organized religion, striking home with hilarious results.
