26 Pebbles

Written by Eric Ulloa

On December 14, 2012, Adam Lanza walked into Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed twenty-six innocent souls before taking his own life. These twenty-six innocent deaths, like pebbles thrown into a pond, created ripples and vibrations that were felt far beyond the initial rings. This is the story of those vibrations.

Similar in style to The Laramie Project, playwright Eric Ulloa conducted interviews with members of the community in Newtown and crafted them into an exploration of gun violence and a small town shaken by a horrific event.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

Written by The Reduced Shakespeare Company

Parodying the plays of William Shakespeare with all of them being performed in comically shortened or merged form by only three actors. The actors use their real names and play themselves rather than specific characters. The fourth wall is nonexistent in the performance, with the actors speaking directly to the audience during much of the play, myself as the stage manager, and some scenes involve audience participation. This production toured to several high schools in Oklahoma. As the stage manager I had to advance and coordinate the production.

Leap of Faith

Written by Glenn Slater and Janus Cercone

A con artist, the "Reverend" Jonas Nightingale, travels with his ministry, but his bus breaks down in a small Kansas town. The some-time reverend pitches a tent and invites the townspeople to a revival. However, the sheriff, a woman named Marla McGowan, is determined to stop Jonas from taking the people's money. Jonas is challenged when he becomes romantically involved with the sheriff. Her love forces the cynical Reverend to come to terms with his life.

Love & Information

Written by Caryl Churchill

A compilation of seven sections, each with a number of scenes that range from less than a minute in length to a couple minutes long. The scenes/vignettes within each section can be done in whatever order the director wishes, allowing the director ample freedom to play along with the certain themes and questions they want to highlight with their particular production. The play allows the director and production team to create a version of the play that they want to. With the wide array of casting options - nothing is specific in terms of casting within the show. There are over 100 characters, however none of the characters are named and they can be double cast.
