New Comedy

Lottie and Bernice, Livin' Large

By L. Don Swartz

COMEDY. There are  plenty of polkas, pierogies, and dog poo as we follow grumpy grannies Lottie and Bernice on new adventures in this side-splitting sequel to Regrets Only! and Get Off My Cabbage!  After tackling a bank robber, the ladies heckle mall-goers, steal Lottie’s pearls off a corpse, sell illicit pierogies, hitchhike a lonely stretch of highway, and attend a court-appointed anger management class.  In a series of flashbacks, we see Lottie and Bernice as babies, as kids selling lemonade, and at a school dance―and they’re just as cantankerous!  The infamous lunch-eating duo, Hal and Sal, are now working at a cemetery and discuss the merits of canned meat, marriage counseling, and public toilets.  The laughs never end in this uproarious show!


New Classic

Alice in Wonderland

By John I. Baker III

CLASSIC. Adapted from the Lewis Carroll novels Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Includes the lost chapter, “The Wasp in a Wig” and original music for “The Lobster Quadrille” and “The Wasp in a Wig.” Alice spies a white rabbit and follows him down a rabbit hole into Wonderland. There, she meets a mouse, who gives her a lecture on William the Conqueror, and a Dodo bird who conducts a caucus race in which everyone runs around in circles and there is no winner.  After the Cheshire cat warns Alice that everyone in Wonderland is mad, she attends a mad tea party with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare. A Gryphon and Mock Turtle dance to “The Lobster Quadrille," and Tweedledee and Tweedledum recite a poem about a Carpenter and a Walrus.  Alice meets Humpty Dumpty, who can’t be put back together again, a lion and unicorn fighting for the crown, and a wasp who wears a toupee.
