Debate Team

Debate Team is a darkly comedic, new musical in one act by Brooklyn composer Toby Singer. Like a cross between The Book of Mormon and Moliere’s Candide, peering through the lens of modern day Silicon Valley, Debate Team examines when cell phone technology, ego, and a blindly utopic vision of the future converge, with apocalyptic results.


The Theatre of Politics

Written and directed by Jeff Swearingen, we will be taking a look at some of the more infamous moments and exchanges of the Election 2016 Debates but as if written by Shakespeare, Chekhov, Williams, Albee, Mamet and more and stylistically morphed into Melodrama, Slapstick, Dada and yes, even Musical Theatre. Starring Taylor Donnelson, Tex Patrello, Doak Campbell Rapp, Jaxon Beeson and Piper Cunningham (as Megyn Kelly).


The Ginny Mac Explosion

Experience this eclectic combination of folk, jazz/blues and western swing with accordion, guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and kazoo, all fronted by Fort Worth sensation Ginny Mac! An Explosion indeed! 


Chekhov’s The Darling

The story follows the life and mind of Olenka as she fantasizes, dreams and adores the people around her. Her quest for love and meaning is a universal one. The audience must decide if the grail brings with it pity, ridicule or admiration. Featuring celebrated actress & teacher Lisa Dalton. 



Every Voice Matters

Three vibrant spoken word performers give a sneak preview of what's to come in April, National Poetry Month, when Tarrant County's top youth poets take the stage to compete in the Thank You Darlin’ Foundation's 11th Annual Voice2Youth Poetry Slam.


Girls Gone Weird

Girls Gone Weird’s unique mix of sketch, song and improv creates a comedic cocktail that’s sure to please. Irreverent and intelligent, quirky and chaotic, the show contains an abundance of music, characters and current topical humor. 




Sandy Thompson - WWII Woman Pilot

A World War II WASP - Women Air Service Pilot - Sandy was the first American woman to fly a bomber. A one woman monologue by Patricia Barry Rumble, performed by Sherri Small Ansley, from Voices of America.


The Open Couple

From the Denisov Antrepriza Company of Houston: An Italian Farce, performed in Russian, explores a married couple who have decided to try having an "open relationship." A whirlwind of differing ideas about sex, politics, love and marriage keep this couple and the audience on their toes.



Dark Circles Contemporary Dance

Four critically acclaimed works by Joshua Peugh: the company’s signature work Slump, the magical It’s a Boy!, the quirky duet Critics of the Morning Song, and the beautifully meditative White Day.



American Classical Ballet Academy is a private school for dancers grades 3 - 12. Our program, Kaleidoscope, showcases our unique diversity and style. The works included are "Money," a Broadway jazz piece "Seriography," "Renegades," a contemporary piece, "Acquiesce," "Here Comes the Sun," a light contemporary piece and more.


Bay Area Harbour Playhouse … Danielle the Dinosaur has Dinomania


SceneShop Every November

Amy and Nathan met in third grade carpool,and have been friends ever since. Their story is one of losses and gains, and the unavoidable reminders that Life does not wait for you to get ready.


Kindred Spirit

Sabrina has had her heart broken. Only days ago her fiancee called off their engagement, and for the last two days in her state of depression has drank excessively and is contemplating suicide. As she, in despair looks into her antique mirror she is visited by an unexpected quest from the other side who has experienced a similar experience.


Pearl’s Review

The year is 1923. The Santa Rita well has hit the pay and Miss Pearl's Parlor is open for business. Fun, entertaining and touching, Cynthia will showcase PEARL with music and dialogue from the musical, PEARL. The music is a combination of saloon, vaudeville, boogie and burlesque much in the style of the 20s. This work is best described as BEST LITTLE WHORE HOUSE meets CHICAGO meets ROMEO AND JULIET. Dressed in 1920s attire, Cynthia portrays herself as Miss Pearl, a classy woman who walks her audience through a sweet love story that has occurred in the midst of different human interest stories associated with Miss Pearl's Parlor. The production brings both a humorous and heartfelt look at human nature.


Camberwell House:

One-woman short play addressing loneliness and aging revealing possible dementia, isolation and reality issues laced with gentle humor.


Fun House Theatre & Film

There is a whole lot that can be said about the televised debates of Election 2016 but the consensus statement seems to be, you can’t script anything like them. Fun House Theatre and Film asks, what if you could? 5 young actors will take the audience on a journey of styles and genres with a look at the most infamous moments and exchanges.
