Well, you SAID you wanted to get involved.

Now we're telling you how.


WE DID IT.


We staged a “sexy” play without getting booed offstage or getting chased out of town by an angry mob!


And people laughed—enthusiastically! Hysterically, even! For our very first Threepenny play, born only of our savings account, awesome friends, sheer pluck, and some prayers, we call that a win!



But probably the best bit of feedback we could possibly have gotten after our run of Venus in Fur this month were the dozen or so local actors, techies, and artisans who came up and asked how they could get involved in the next one!


Which is our cue to tell you about a few of the shows we've got on our theater “wish list:” plays that have seriously piqued our interest over the years that we would love to try and tackle, if the timing and casting is right!


If any of the summaries below hook you, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take a closer look at these incredible shows by incredible playwrights. Links provided. Click 'em!


If it sounds like your kind of play, whether you want to help onstage or off, get in touch with us here or on our social channels (and give us a like and a follow while you're at it)! If we get enough actor interest, we’ll see what we can do to make one or two of these fantastic productions happen next year!


Please note, the months we’d like to put these shows on are TENTATIVE. When you reach out, feel free to give us lots of details about you, your acting interests, your experience, and most importantly, your availability. We'll see what the interest is like for each one, apply for rights if the stars align, and schedule some auditions from there.


That’s the great thing about being a traveling troupe—we’re flexible!


Now read on, and let us know how we can bend over backwards for YOU!

 

Jason’s wish list picks (tentatively February or summer months of 2024, six performances over two weekends)

Two actors, 1 M, 1 F, ages 50+

Two childhood friends exchange a lifetime of correspondence and discover that through separate marriages and years spent physically apart, they are spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.


5 - 9 actors. 4 principle adult actors, plus ensemble for a variety of bit roles.

With echoes of Stoppard, Kafka, and the Brothers Grimm, The Pillowman centers on a writer in an unnamed totalitarian state who is being interrogated about the gruesome content of his short stories and their similarities to a series of child murders. The result is an urgent work of theatrical bravura and an unflinching examination of the very nature and purpose of art.


Kat’s wish list picks (tentatively February or March 2024, six performances over two weekends)

7 Female actors, late teens to 80 +

Two American women, a Park Avenue psychiatrist and an ambitious young writer, travel to Bosnia to help women refugees confront their memories of war. Though the two have little in common, they both emerge deeply changed as they confront their own fears in the face of violence, resiliency, and war.


3 - 6 female actors, late teens to 80+

Witty and irreverent, compassionate and wise, this award-winning masterpiece gives voice to women’s deepest fantasies and fears, guaranteeing that no one who sees it will ever look at a woman’s body, or think of sex, in quite the same way again.


And the one play we’d slap-fight over who gets to direct (anytime next year)


Two actors, 1 M, 1 F, ages 20s to 30s

This play made waves in the 80s at the world-renowned Oregon Shakespeare Festival! A young man who lives in a remote beach bungalow has pulled a lost young woman from the ocean. Soon, she finds herself trapped in his life and torn between her need to come to rest somewhere and her certainty that all human relationships turn eventually into nightmares.
