    A Streaming Event!

    An Evening of One-Acts Featuring the Wilbur Wright Theatre Company
    and the Munster Theatre Company

    The Munster Theatre Company will be producing They Eat Sunshine, Not Zebras and Scarlet Expectations of a Drowned Maiden and Two Greek Queens

    They Ead Sunshine, Not Zebras follows several blades of grass, growing contentedly in someone’s lawn.  One day a dandelion sprouts.  How will they deal with this “invader”?

    If you love classic literature, or even if you don’t, Scarelet Expectations of a Drowned Maiden and Two Greek Queens is perfect for you!  Featuring five strong females from literary history (Penelope from The Iliad, Medea from Medea, Ophelia from Hamlet, Hester Prynne from The Scarlet Letter, and Miss Havisham from Great Expectations) are all guests on a modern-day talk show.  They bring their stories together as they work through their own problems and find support for each other.   All goes well until Reverend Dimmesdale shows up!  This is a hilarious recap of five great literary works!

     

    The Wilbur Wright Theatre Company titles will be producing Hero Zero and Meet the Roommates.

    In Hero Zero, Big Bro is a war hero, a larger-than-life presence whose little brother wants to be just like him when he grows up. But when the unthinkable happens and Big Bro is lost in the war, how can young Nil fill such big shoes? There are no easy answers, but Big Bro may just have left some clues behind to help in this play about grief and resilience.

    In Meet the Roommates, two friends discover an incredible online simulator that shows them exactly what their future college roommate experiences will look like. Yet after a few minutes with a raging narcoleptic, a world-class procrastinator, and a children’s party clown, it may be time to seriously consider living alone.

     

    Tickets for this event will be available for purchase at munaud.booktix.com beginning October 19.  Each ticket will be assigned a unique streaming link for whichever performance is selected in the purchasing process.
    A stream pass for an individual will be $8, and a stream pass for two or more people watching together will be $15.

  • A Holly Jolly Paint-at-home Party!
    6:00 pm
    11/20/2020

    Get in the Christmas spirit with your family by staying in! RPAC will deliver all the materials for one finished canvas painting project to your doorstep. You provide the Gingerbread, candy, or beverages of choice (cocoa, anyone?) and the painters. We will provide the step-by-step paint along via a private Zoom event. This is a great chance to get out without going out!

    (Our design is TBD. Once it is set, we will update this event with the correct photo. You can bet it will get you in the Christmas spirit, though!)

    $20 covers the cost of canvas, paint, and serves as admission to the event. If you would like to keep your easel and paintbrushes you may do so for an extra $5. (Our easels make a great display stand in a pinch!)

    Materials for this event will be delivered on November 19th to your patio via contactless delivery.

    Unpurchased easels and brushes will be picked up via our state-of-the-art patio delivery system after the event.
