Coming soon!

 Gilda: A Tribute to the Beloved Comedienne Gilda Radner 

                 A one-woman show by Helena K. Cosentino

~ This one-woman performance will bring to life and pay homage to some of Gilda’s famous characters and musical numbers.  Aspects of Gilda’s life story will be shared with particular emphasis on the way Gilda used laughter to get through the hard times.

~Her comedy truly made fun of the very things she was experiencing. It is for those of you who grew up watching Gilda and have always loved her and also for those of you who don’t know anything about her other than maybe you remember seeing a rerun of Saturday Night Live or you just watched the 40 year anniversary special and saw Emma Stone with this crazy wig on talking about how “it’s always something.”   But most of all, this show is dedicated to anyone going through Cancer or any challenging life event. 

~Helena’s goal is to capture and share a glimpse of Gilda’s amazing spirit with you, hoping to inspire you to laugh through life.

~Performances will take place at The Fishtank Theatre

NEIGHBORHOOD 3: REQUISITION OF DOOM by Jennifer Haley opens May 21

May 21 - June 8, Thursday - Saturday, 8:30pm
$20
In a suburban subdivision with identical houses, parents find their teenagers addicted to an online horror video game. The game setting? A subdivision with identical houses. The goal? Smash through an army of zombies to escape the neighborhood for good. But as the line blurs between virtual and reality, both parents and players realize that fear has a life of its own.

Directed by Taylor St. John
Featuring Coleman Crenshaw, Devon Barnes, Kelsey Leubbert and BJ Sudhoff
 
"Playing like a nifty episode of The Twilight Zone, the story builds to an affectingly gruesome finale...with its small-scale tech demands and four-person ensemble, Neighborhood seems a likely candidate for legit troupes hoping to benefit from the play's youthful, tech-savvy appeal." - Variety Magazine

Winner! 2009 Primus Citations from the American Theatre Critics Association which premiered at the Humana Festival of New American Plays at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
