2222: The Zombie Apoclaypse
It’s the Zombie love story musical comedy. Opening
soon in a theatre near you... just as soon as we finish filming it, which is just as soon as we finish writing it, but that’s
only if the Zombies don’t come to life for real. And maybe they already have... 2222, a full-length
Ahhh... the Accountancy!
There’s no finer profession. It’s secure. It’s safe. And it’s predictable.

and pocket protector are waiting! A full-length comedy.
Arlene’s Beauty World
Curlers, hairspray, and exploding fruitcake.

Bomber before he gets blown up, too. A full-length comedy.
The Beeblebrox and Bixley Traveling Circus and Sideshow
The Circus has just one last chance to do the impossible

beardless lady, the skinny man, or any of the other equally talented acts do? A full-length comedy.
It shouldn’t matter if your antenna go up
or down, unless, of course, you’re the Princess of Frigistan and you’re in love with the Prince of Stovia, two
countries on the brink of war separated by more than the treacherous Linoleum Plains. A one act comedy.
Elves and Easter Bunnies,
Groundhogs and Cupids, Leprechauns and Tooth Fairies – they all have one thing in common... they really don’t
like each other. Now if only they can pretend that they do for just one night. A one act comedy.
Somewhere beyond the pet store
lies Happy Doggy Land, where there are no collars and the Kibbles grows on the trees. To get there, all you have to

The Dearly UnDeparted

Only it’s not Grampa who came back. And he’s not going to tell Gramma it’s OK to sell the house.

The Faculty Meeting
One of the teachers has to

Or any of the other equally talented professionals at Roosevelt High School? We’ll find out at The Faculty Meeting, a comedy in one act.
Fairly Told Tales
For years parents
have sent their children off to bed with tales from the Brothers Grimm and fables from Aesop. No wonder so many kids wake up in the middle of the night screaming. Seriously! What
was wrong with those guys? Witches eating children, parents selling their daughters, monsters,
and worse! Well, it’s about time that somebody set the record straight! Fairly Told Tales: A collection
of eight short comedies.
Five Minutes of Fame
Five minutes of fame ought
to be enough... unless, of course, you were expecting more. Unless you were expecting your full fifteen minutes.
And then, five minutes of fame is just not going to do. Five Minutes of Fame, a ten
Was Elvis killed by disco? Is there a secret
Elvis Disco tape worth millions? And which of the guests would be willing to destroy anything to find it? Even
kill for it? The answers to these questions and more await at the Gracelandia hotel. A full length comedy.
Iselmatainia, where revolution has become the national pastime,
and the only question is not “if,” but “when.” Iselmatainia, where “fifteen minutes of
fame” takes on a completely new meaning. A comedy in one act.
Being a plant has its perks, what with living in the great outdoors.
But it has its downside, too, in that you can’t ever get away from the other annoying plants, and you especially can’t
escape from the Killer Bees. A one act comedy.
Murder While You Wait
Can Edward find true love, save his cat from the undertakers,
not marry the mobster’s daughter, and not get killed by the mobster, his hit men, or just about everybody else, all
by 7:00 p.m. this Saturday night? The chances are slim. A full-length comedy.
The Punch Line
Each year for the past seventeen
years, on this very night, the Hawthorne Hotel has been visited by four ghosts, ghosts who cannot rest until somebody comes
up with the punch line to a joke that has yet to be written. But tonight promises to be different, because tonight Inspector
Chromium is determined to rid the hotel once and for all of these sporadic spooks, that is, if none of the other very strange
guests doesn’t beat him to it first. The Punch Line, a full length comedy.
Free! To anybody that wants
it: Swamp Castle. Nose plugs not included. A ten minute comedy.
Wanted! Talented students
to perform in Talent-tastic! It’s the Roosevelt High School’s annual talent show! Please, people!

And no fighting! A comedy in one act.
That’s Mister Vampire to You
OK. So Mr. Miller died, but that was an accident. And we did bring him back to life. Only he came
back as a vampire. So we had to kill him again... and again. But that doesn’t mean I should fail my science
project. A one act comedy.

And Coming Soon!
Hanging up the Cape
The villains used to not be that fast. These buildings used to
not be so far apart. And if that rope comes loose – and there's really no reason why it doesn't – but if
it does, you're going to fall. And that pavement is really going to hurt. You could break a hip. Maybe...
just maybe... it's time to be Hanging Up the Cape. Even Superheroes need to know when to retire. Hanging Up the Cape, a ten minute duet.
The Republic of Almost Perfect
It is the Cube, the most diabolical
weapon ever conceived, capable of killing everyone on the entire planet, one at a time, or all together, without ever having
to leave the comfort of your home. And it
has just been handed to the Republic of Almost Perfect, the most peaceful country on the earth. Almost. The Republic of Almost Perfect, a one act comedy.
