A Christmas Carol: A Live Radio Play

The Charles Dickens holiday classic comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials for fruitcake (extra-fancy), and the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. A handful of actors bring dozens of characters to the stage, as the familiar story unfolds: Three ghosts take Ebenezer Scrooge on a thrilling journey to teach him the true meaning of Christmas. A charming take on a family favorite that will leave no one saying "Bah Humbug!"

Mircala

Forced to live a life of solitude, drinking tea and drying out bat specimens in Upper Styria, nineteen-year-old Laura is thrilled when a mysterious guest, Carmilla, joins her and her father's quiet household. But when her new friend excites in her tumultuous feelings and nocturnal visits end in sharp sensations in the throat, it becomes clear that there is more to Carmilla than meets the eye. The question is, is there more to Laura?

Murder By Natural Causes

Here's a stylish and witty suspense play that originally starred Hal Holbrook, Katherine Ross and Barry Bostwick. It combines laughter with thrills and delivers what mystery fans love most -- taut suspense with an ingenious plot.

Arthur Sinclair is a successful world-famous mentalist in the tradition of Dunninger. His beautiful wife Allison plots his murder for the commonest of all motives -- greed. She enlists the aid of a struggling young actor. Her foolproof murder plan cannot possibly misfire as it's too skillfully inventive -- or is it? After all, Arthur (as everyone knows) has psychic gifts. But does he?

Once the killing scheme is set in motion, the plot begins to twist and turn. Nothing is as it seems. Is mind reading possible? Can the future be foretold? Just when the audience figures out what will happen next, there is an unexpected shock to complicate matters in an amusing and scary fashion.

The mystery builds to an exciting climax where Arthur's gifts not only save his life but also create a devilish new puzzle that will keep the audience on the edge of its collective seat. It will take all of your mental powers to solve this wildly clever and entertaining thriller.

Disaster!

Disaster! is a new musical straight from Broadway, featuring some of the most unforgettable songs of the '70s. "Knock on Wood," "Hooked on a Feeling," "Sky High," "I Am Woman" and "Hot Stuff" are just a few of the scintillating hits in this hilarious musical comedy with a book by three-time Emmy Award nominee and SiriusXM Broadway host, Seth Rudetsky, and Jack Plotnick.

It's 1979, and New York's hottest A-listers are lining up for the opening of a floating casino and discotheque. Also attending is a faded disco star, a sexy nightclub singer with her eleven-year-old twins, a disaster expert, a feminist reporter, an older couple with a secret, a pair of young guys who are looking for ladies, an untrustworthy businessman and a nun with a gambling addiction. What begins as a night of boogie fever quickly changes to panic as the ship succumbs to multiple disasters, such as earthquakes, tidal waves and infernos. As the night turns into day, everyone struggles to survive and, quite possibly, repair the love that they've lost... or at least escape the killer rats.

Audiences and critics are wild for this hilarious homage to the era of bell-bottoms, platform shoes and the hustle. With larger-than-life characters, snappy dialogue and some of the most recognizable songs of the '70s, Disaster! will have your patrons dancing in their seats and rolling in the aisles.
