Address: 154 W Chicago St, Valparaiso, IN 46383, USA

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.

    Done To Death

    By Fred Carmichael
    Directed by Aaron and Julie Breford

    Done to Death, by Fred Carmichael, is a mystery-comedy that packs in parodies of every mystery plot, hero, and villain from the golden age of film. The story alternates between reality and imagination as five mystery writers wrestle with the problem of writing a television mystery series.  All around them murders occur and each writer takes a turn at solving them in his/her own style.   Five once famous mystery writers; a couple who only write the most sophisticated of murders, a young author of the James Bond school, a retired writer of the hard hitting method, and an aging queen of the logical murder, involve the audience as they explore their own methods of investigation on a series of murders.
