A hilarious take on a typical Sherlock Holmes whodunit. Five guests (one of them unwelcome ) arrive on Christmas Eve at the Connecticut mansion of a Sherlock-Holmes-wannabe actor and his slightly dotty mother. The events that follow are typical of a Sherlock Holmes melodrama — murders, attempted murders, plots, suspicions, a seance and finally the arrival of a police detective. The only thing missing is the butler. He was out for the holidays.

Nine unusual love scenes take us through a journey about love. A thought provoking, heart warming, subtly humorous, quiet, treatise on the ups and downs of love in its many variations. Nine couples converse on the issues confronting them as lovers, friends, husbands and wives, in a mythical town called Almost in Maine. It was selected by the American National Theatre as one of the most outstanding regional theatre productions in 2005.

Lyrics by Mary Stewart-David
Music by Denis King
Seven women and one man of various ages, differing motivations and disparate backgrounds who attend the same weekly tap dancing class, and with more determination then talent, to “let go”. Despite the students at first treating the classes as social occasions, and show little coordination, they later develop a level of skill and cohesiveness. Funny and touching, Stepping Out is a musical statement on how friendship and camaraderie can turn even the most unlikely into competent and proud performers.
Choreography by Rose Borromeo

A Little Princess is based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, which was honored by School Library Journal as one of the “Top 100 Chapter Books” of all time. This re-imagined version of the classic tale expands beyond the confines of Victorian England to Africa, giving the writers ample opportunity to include lively African music and dance, exotic locales like Mali and Timbuktu, and creating an unforgettable journey around the world.
Based on the classic Victorian-era novel, it is the story of a young girl’s resilience, when she is placed in a Boarding School by her father and the power of her imagination to change the world..
