Thanks the cast for their dedication, Danny for all he has done, Rod for taking care of “the rest of the house”, and Angela for putting up with me for several weeks of not getting any dishes done, taking any garbage out, and stressing about school, homework, the show and everything else in life.

This is Brooke’s first acting gig, except for a single lined role in a church road-show when she was 14. I like rum. She is a self-proclaimed geek who enjoys playing the flute. She loves to sing (especially on road trips to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer "Once More With Feeling" soundtrack) although she says she is terrible at it. “I've always been curious about the notion that if you have stage-fright you should picture everyone naked, why are you the only one clothed?”

Current Shows

Our current show is An Evening in Canterbury, a unique dinner theater event based on four of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Originally "The Canterbury Tales" were written in the late 14th century in Middle English verse; we have translated it to English understandable today while retaining as much of the verse as possible. "The Canterbury Tales" follows the story of a group of pilgrims on the road to Canterbury to the shrine of St. Thomas Becket. Though we have made the tales milder to suit a wider audience "The Canterbury Tales" deals with a somewhat mature subject matter and parental guidance is strongly suggested.
