64 years of excellence


Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollman
Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis

A side-splitting send-up of greed, revolution (and musicals!) in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.  Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critics Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms

What to prepare: One minute contemporary monologue

REASONS TO BE PRETTY centers on four young working class friends and lovers who become increasingly dissatisfied with their dead-end lives and each other. A love story about the impossibility of love, REASONS TO BE PRETTY focuses on the modern-day obsession with physical appearance and with the pressures of what it means to be ‘pretty’, and observes how these four friends manage the infidelity, betrayal and deceit that creeps into their lives.


Greg (25 – 35): A nice guy with a tendency to say the wrong thing without being aware of it. He is well read (enjoys classic American literature in an effort to better himself) but remains in his dead end job. Does his best to avoid conflict whenever possible. Works in a warehouse with Kent and Carly.

Steph (25 – 35) : Greg’s girlfriend. Open and vunerable Steph has a hair-trigger temper and is at times argumentative, particularly when she feels emotionally wounded. One of Greg’s unsuspecting remarks causes her to end their relationship. She is close friends with Carly, but doesn’t care for Kent.

Kent (25 – 35): A quintessential jerk. Stereotypical chauvinistic jock who values women only by their appearance. Winning in sports and with beautiful women are his sole focus in life. Loves having the ‘trophy wife’ but is not faithful and always on the prowl to prove his manhood. Married to Carly.

Carly (25- 35 ): She knows she’s attractive and not above using it to her advantage; however, also recognizes the burden of being ‘pretty.’ Vulnerable, but can be manipulative if necessary. Only has her job because of how she looks. Works at the same warehouse as Kent and Greg.

*Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.

BY: Rob Urbinati

What happens when you mix the brilliant wit of Noel Coward with the intricate plotting of Agatha Christie? Set during a weekend in an English country manor in 1932, Death by Design is a delightful and mysterious “mash-up” of two of the greatest English writers of all time. Edward Bennett, a playwright, and his wife Sorel Bennett, an actress, flee London and head to Cookham after a disastrous opening night. But various guests arrive unexpectedly – a conservative politician, a fiery socialist, a nearsighted ingénue, a zany modern dancer – each with a long-held secret. When one of the guests is murdered, it’s left to Bridgit, the feisty Irish maid with a macabre interest in homicide, to solve the crime. Death by Design is more than homage – it’s a new classic.
