    When the Clampett family unexpectedly strikes it rich, they move from the Ozarks to Beverly Hills. Suddenly 17-year-old Elly May, a beautiful but naïve tomboy, is thrown into a world of debutante balls, polo matches and people mainly concerned with their place in society. Nearly taken in by a couple of scheming ne’er-do-wells, Elly proves traditional country virtue triumphs over slick city vice. This musical is about compassion and tolerance—with a little moonshine and Ozark stompin’ thrown in to spice it all up. Learn More

    This play takes on society's innate fear of the unknown through vignettes that humorously illustrate the lengths to which people will go in order to avoid the latest threat to their health, whether it is real or imagined. The concept of a manufactured health crisis is the perfect vehicle to illustrate our cultural gullibility when it comes to medicine, disease and our predisposition for panic and irrational reaction when it comes to our well-being.

    A multicultural ensemble takes on characters who dive headlong into their experiences of trying to stay personally connected in the digital age. Actors take on many characters to create a cacophony of viewpoints: an internet influencer, a gender fluid go-getter, a mother and son who desperately want to be seen, the popular students with a tendency to bully, and the misfits who strive to be understood. These unique voices create a dynamic theatrical whirlwind that is full of humor and insight. Learn More
