Circus Freaks – Playthings

The Circus Freaks have escaped from the Big Top and are bringing fresh life to time honored traditions in this narrative-driven circus show about a world famous doll-maker and the sacrifices he must make to bring his mysterious creations to life. A toymaker's twist on the Frankenstein myth, featuring dazzling displays of daring acrobatics. Come one. Come all!


Crossover Arts - Dangerous Things on Dark Nights by Naomi Cohen

17 year-old playwright Naomi Cohen delivers chilling suspense in this taut and tragic mystery about three young girls who, facing unimaginable catastrophe, must make a difficult decision about moving forward in the face of grief. 


DGDG – The Show About Men

Modern dance troupe DGDG brings vibrant choreography, subversive wit and a playful spirit to each of their conceptual events, which seamlessly blend music, movement and text to illustrate a host of contemporary psychological, social and gender issues.


Gorilla Theatre – And the Stones Will Cry Out by David M. Graham

Underscored by a quest for true enlightenment, this fascinating cryptogram probes both the science and spirituality surrounding the world's rarest and most controversial book, The Wurzberg Lithography


The In-Laws Decline of Ballooning by Brian Torrey Smith

A ghost-narrated, musical love story about two hopelessly confused scientists caught in a geomantic web of intrigue, which uses devised movement to illustrate the ways in which aerial photography mirrors our own emotional topography.


SCDallas - Renaissance Fighters by Jeffrey Colangelo

Witness a battle for the ages as two effete Renaissance men duel for the affections of their fair love, Rosalind. An extravaganza of stunning fight choreography, epic swordplay and rapier wit from the creative mind of Jeffery Colangelo and SCDallas.


Upstart Productions - Sick F**k by Paul Shoulberg

Navigating a lifetime of resentment, regret and heartache, the spirit of a terminal cancer patient attempts to find redemption through the jokes of a demented stand-up comic in a remarkably tiny t-shirt.


WingSpan Theatre Company - Shoe Confessions by Cynthia Salzman Mondell

Highlighted by a musical rhythm, this fashionable tale follows the misunderstood and rarely recognized journey of shoes. Shown from perspectives as diverse as the accessory itself, this new work by Cynthia Saltzman Mondell tells the real life stories of several "sole sisters" in the theatrical precursor to her upcoming documentary film.
