Cupid's Beau by Babs Lindsay
Directed by Purnima Baldwin

Boy meets girl. Girl falls for boy. Peter and Lacey seem like average people looking to add the spark back into their lives.

Dan in the Lion's Den by Mare Freed, a Somerville native.
Directed by Mare Freed
Rehearsal Assistant, Jay Sekora

of hanging out with lions, his family must frantically convince him to return to safety. Or must they? World Premiere Performance!

Helluva Poker Face by Chris Lockheardt
Directed by Mikey DiLoreto

Have you ever been so stuck in a routine that it scares you? What if the "scary part" was an intimidating friend name Cam
and that routine was simply a poker game? Watch as four friends, who know way too much about each other (especially their weaknesses),
try to sway each other to succumb to the scariest intangible of all...chance! Place your bets and see if you can keep your game face on.

Jess Viator...........Brenny
Brie Frame...........Mo
Sylvine Raverdy...........Phillipe
Renee Johnson...........Cam


Not Funny by Chris Lockheardt

Elizabeth Leonard...........Emily


Season's Greetings by Chris Lockheardt
Directed by Jennifer Cseh

Three coworkers explore their feelings about 9/11 several years later and wonder if they'll ever be free to move on
from the fear and sadness of that day. (Please note that this play does contain some gentle black humor.) World Premiere Performance!

Brian Rust...........Steve
Alyssa Osiecki...........Ellen
Katherine Bryant...........Gina


The Usual by Babs Lindsay
