Our “Script In Hand Series” creates more performance and directing opportunities for local artists and introduce audiences to new plays in a full “reading/performance” of a play in which the actors are allowed to have their scripts in their hands and are not memorized. The director of each show will create blocking, and use of limited costumes, props, and sound effects, to create a performance experience for the audience. The focus is on telling the story, character development, utilizing new and experienced actors, and creating a mood that thrills the audience. Each production will have one night of auditions, a maximum of eight rehearsals and one performance.
All Script In Hand performances this summer will be held at the Helgeson Learning Lab Theatre.
Seating is general admission and tickets ($5 recommended donation per person) are available at the door.

Tons of fun and physical comedy energize this truly “wild” one-act farce. Revolutionary pet therapist Dr. Marla Brett has recently developed a new pill that she claims will help people better understand their pets. Her protégé, Dr. Lizzie Linkester, is overjoyed to handle the trial run of the new drug at her veterinarian clinic. Eager patients, including a US senator, a farmer, and an exterminator, flood the clinic in hopes of learning to communicate better with their pets. But medical breakthrough turns to chaos as the pet owners return, suffering from an unforeseen side effect — they’re now starting to act like their animals! It’s the cat’s meow!
