Written By: Jim Cartwright
Directed By: Trevor Smith-Diggins
Produced By: Lil Milanovich

Little Voice tells the inspirational story of LV, a painfully shy young woman with a golden talent. A hopeless introvert, LV sits alone, replaying her late father’s records, while her gin-soaked mother spends time around the block.

Watch the sparks fly as the girl with the little voice makes her triumphant debut. A tender story with a dramatic climax, this critically acclaimed comedy-drama features the music of legends like Judy Garland, Shirley Bassey and Marilyn Monroe.

Much Ado About Nothing

Written By: William Shakespeare
Directed By: Gerry Butts
Produced By: Liz Dent

Gerry brings another audience favorite to the stage with Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. Written in the year 1600, this romantic comedy has been called "a feast of wit from beginning to end”. Lovers Claudio and Hero are to be married and, wanting all the world to be as happy as they, spend the time before their wedding conspiring to trick their friends Beatrice and Benedick into confessing their love for one another. Dogberry’s comic antics add fun, confusion and mayhem to the plot. Conspiracy, trickery and the sabotage of their plans make this another of Shakespeare’s best loved and entertaining comedies.
