JANE AUSTEN UNSCRIPTED
March 3rd @ 7:30pm
Jane Austen wrote only six novels, but this show gives audiences a chance to imagine other books she might have written. Impro Theatre starts with a single audience suggestion and deftly creates an entire world of love-struck girls, brooding noblemen and charming cads, and although hearts are sure to be broken, true love will win out in the end. Impro Theatre's performances are unique; there are no repeated characters and no set story structure, and each play is written in real time – while simultaneously being performed – by the actors.
“One of the funniest evenings in town…An amazing comedy troupe spins an entire play into comedy gold right before your eyes.”

IT'S A Good Day: A Tribute To Peggy Lee
May 5th & 6th @ 7:30pm
Stacy Sullivan’s ITS A GOOD DAY: A TRIBUTE TO MISS PEGGY LEE is an interpretive exploration of the extraordinary music and personal struggles of a singer, composer, and actress whose remarkable career spanned over six decades, influencing jazz and popular-music culture worldwide. Fresh with courageous takes on Peggy Lee’s famous canon, including “Fever,” “Johnny Guitar,” “I Love Being Here With You,” and the title song, “It’s a Good Day,” Sullivan joins forces with Jon Weber and Steve Doyle, to evoke Lee, but deftly apply their own stamp to each and every song.
2013 Female Vocalist of the Year from the Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs, Stacy Sullivan has appeared in venues around the world, from The Brasserie Zedel in London to The Cafe Carlyle in New York. She has recorded five albums for the LML Music label, including her latest, “It’s a Good Day,” winner of the 2013 Lamott/Friedman Award and voted one of the Top Ten Recordings of 2012 by Talkin’ Broadway. Stacy can also be heard regularly on Sirius Radio’s “Siriously Sinatra,” and NPR’s “Piano Jazz Rising Stars.”
Twilight Zone Unscripted
June 2nd @ 7:30pm
To truly enter the world of The Twilight Zone, we had to come to know the life of its creator, Rod Serling. We learned how his small town roots and service in World War II would greatly influence his outlook on life and eventually give birth to his breakthrough series. When one remembers The Twilight Zone, certain fantastic images will always stick in the mind, but all of them were deeply grounded in the themes that Rod was intent on exploring. The more we studied Serling’s motivations, the deeper our respect grew for his writing and his vision.
Pete SeEger Tribute
Jewish Arts Festival
June 10th @ 7:30pm
Pete Seeger’s music was a big part of many Jewish homes. Seeger’s song If I Had A Hammer, Where Have All the Flowers Gone, and We Shall Overcome encouraged us to join our voices with others and sing out to make a stronger community and a better world. We celebrate his life through the staged reading of Todd Salovey’s original full-length sing-along musical Pete Seeger Sings Out to be publicly performed for the first time. (portions of this musical were included in the San Diego REP’s A Hammer A Bell and A Song to Sing.) Join singer actor musicians Dave Crossland, Jim Mooney, and Vaughn Armstrong for this musical tribute.

Sister's Summer School catechism
June 23rd & 24th @ 7:30pm
It’s summer and Sister is NOT happy. It seems the diocese has decided to offer a summer school catechism course for those students who weren’t paying attention all year. Instead of three relaxing weeks at the motherhouse, Sister is stuck with her students this summer! And summer is already rough enough for Sister – try wearing 50 pounds of gabardine in 90-degree heat! Sister will discuss such questions as, “Did Jesus have to go to summer school? or “What is an appropriate summer vacation for a practicing Catholic?” And she’s sure to talk about the best way to make use of what’s left of your summer vacation. Beat the heat with Sister this summer, and if you know what’s good for you, don’t be late!
