Make Me A Perfect--Asperger's--Match

Max has Asperger's. So does Victoria.

They "met" on an online dating service for persons on the autism spectrum. A (mostly) cheerful Max asks the (always) overwhelmed Victoria for a date at the only place he feels comfortable, the break room at the McDonald's where he works. Will they hit it off or just eat fries?

After the play -- Autism professionals will lead a panel discussion about Asperger's and autism. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions and take home informational brochures provided by panel members.

SATURDAY 7:30PM SOLD OUT

Digging in Their Heels

A high-energy, eye-opening story of women’s 72-year battle for the right to vote . . . told as if Susan B. Anthony and her spicy pals had i-Pads, Snapchat, Twitter, and Uber. You’ll laugh, learn, and marvel over those who paved the way for women today. Pure enjoyment and inspiration.

Failure: A Love Story

By the end of 1928, all three Fail sisters will be dead -- expiring in reverse order, youngest to oldest, from blunt object to the head, disappearance, and finally consumption. Tuneful songs, and a whimsical chorus follow the story of Nelly, Jenny June, and Gerty as they live out their lives above the family clock repair shop near the Chicago River, before their time unexpectedly runs out. A magical, musical fable where, in the end, the power of love is far greater than any individual's successes or failures.

Steel Magnolias

Truvy Jones runs a successful beauty shop in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies in the neighborhood have a standing Saturday appointment. Shelby Eatonton's engagement is the talk of the town, but the joy and excitement of her wedding quickly turns to concern as she faces a risky pregnancy and a myriad of health challenges. Eventually, when Shelby dies from complications related to her diabetes, M'Lynn, her mother, has to deal with life's most difficult challenge: the loss of one's child.

These Shining Lives

These Shining Lives focuses on the story of Catherine Donohue and some of her female co-workers, known as the Radium Girls, who were lied to by their employers about the health effects of the radium they were using to paint watches in the 1920s and 1930s. Their case helped change laws that would help keep future employees safe from dangers and health issues they would face in the workplace.
