All aboard! With a burst of steam, the luxurious Orient Express departs Istanbul for Paris filled with an eccentric ensemble of international travelers ready to be pampered. Yet, by morning, the train is trapped in a snowdrift, a passenger is found brutally stabbed to death, and the brilliant detective Hercule Poirot must employ all his “little grey cells” to solve the crime. Adapted by one of today’s foremost comedic playwrights, this sparkling retelling of Christie’s world-famous mystery is sure to delight. Staged as a 1934 radio play and broadcast live online, audiences are in for a suspenseful, thrilling ride!

Inspired by the beloved 1946 Frank Capra film, this home-grown musical brings the heartwarming holiday tale to life in a unique online theatrical production. Despite years of hard work and self-sacrifice, George Bailey is faced with financial ruin. That fateful night, as he stands on a bridge contemplating suicide, he wishes he had never been born. When Clarence (guardian angel in training) overhears George’s bitter cry, he grants the wish, and opens his eyes to all that would have been lost…both large and small…in a life without him. Featuring an original score by the award-winning local artist Janis Dunson Wilson, this charming show is a ray of hope in our tumultuous times.

Having lost her family in a tragic accident, Agnes Evans begins the painful task of packing her teenage sister’s room. She soon realizes how little she knew her sister when she discovers a scenario Tilly wrote for the role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons. With the help of a “dungeon master,” Agnes embarks on a quest to learn more about the sister she’s lost and soon finds herself in a world where fantasy and reality collide. Inhabited by nasty ogres, homicidal fairies, and monsters with a 90s twist, this imaginative comedy is both a wild adventure and a touching exploration of loss and acceptance.
“She Kills Monsters” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
