2012 - 13 Season
Join us for our 2012-13 season where we'll philosophize about life through comedy, parable, drama and song! These four plays ponder the serious – and not so serious – questions like: How can you be a good person in an imperfect world? Why does it matter what others think? What is the meaning of life – and what does have to do with the love of a good dog? …And what do you learn about your best friend when there’s a psychotic killer chasing you?
