It's the holidays! Time for the classics Rudolph, Frosty, Ebenezer Scrooge, the Nutcracker and many more! But maybe not the way we're accustomed to hearing them. In what can best be called a holiday mash-up, actors take beloved stories and traditions from around the world and turn them upside-down and sideways!
"The play accomplishes the small miracle of making all Christmas myths seem both utterly ridiculous and absolutely essential. Yes, Virginia, you can have your fruitcake and eat it, too." - Orlando Weekly.
Theresa Quinn and Randy Kramer will join us with their 4-hands-1-piano cabaret. Enjoy an evening of virtuosic 4-hand piano arrangements, vocal solos and duets, featuring the music of Gershwin, Sondheim, the Beatles, Beethoven, Joplin, Bernstein, Fats Waller, and others.

Tyler Johnes just wants to make it to the Oscars to accept his award for Best Supporting Actor. There's just one problem he seems to be stuck in a bar where things are not quite...normal. Seamus the bartender isn't helping matters, either. While Tyler continues to try to make it onto the red carpet, he is interrupted by unusual visitors. Filled with humor and emotion, this play will win your heart.
"WINNER shares with Albom's best-selling Morrie and The Five People You Meet in Heaven the subject of life and the lessons it teaches." - LA Times.
One of the most oft-produced plays in Europe, this parable about racism and prejudice is a great example of epic-theater. Set in fictionalized Andorra, Andri is adopted by a teacher and raised as a Jew. Throughout the play, Andri is faced with outright prejudice and complicit silence from his fellow townspeople. Frisch's message is loud and clear prejudice happens in every country, both in the past and the present, and we must learn to accept everyone's differences if we are to lead happy, productive lives.
"The guilty are sitting in the stalls ... They are to be frightened: they should, when they have seen the play, lie awake at night. " -TIME
An original play by The Laboratory Theater of Florida based on the real-life stories of Southwest Florida immigrants.
