Night of the
By Lori Allen Ohm
From the George Romero/John Russo Classic Film
Fallout from a satellite probe shot to
Venus returns to Earth carrying a mysterious radiation that transforms the
unburied dead into flesh-eating zombies. Seven people trapped in an isolated
farmhouse, held hostage by the ravenous ghouls, begin to turn on each other as
the dead encroach. A gripping terror-filled monochromatic play that brings all
the fright of the cult classic to life. This blend of thrilling horror laced
with touches of black humor envelops the audience in the action and unfolds into
a shocking theatrical ending.

The Tales From the Arabian Nights
Director: Chris Hamby
This is a delightfully humorous and action-packed
re-telling of some of the tales from THE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS. The sultan,
bewitched by a magic scimitar, decrees that he will marry a new bride every
evening and chop off her head the next morning. To save her neck, clever
Scheherazade tells her husband a tale which isn’t quite completed by the
dawn’s early light. So he postpones the execution a day. Scheherazade keeps up
the parade of stories for a thousand and one nights, finally winning him from
the scimitars evil spell. The show is brought to life by an ensemble of actors
that rarely ever leave the stage.

Original Adaptation by Gerry Cullity, founder, Desert Stages Theatre
Enjoy Gerry Cullity's original adaptation of this classic, including original music and lyrics. Join the adventures of young Alice as she explores a zany wonderland in this children's classic by Lewis Carroll. On an idle afternoon, by chance, following a White Rabbit who disappears into its burrow, Alice herself stumbles into the rabbit hole and soon is immersed in a colorfully and exciting Wonderland. Whimsical songs and discoveries surround her as she encounters a crew of madcap characters including the Queen of Hearts and, yes, an army of playing cards.
