NOT the truth we seek
Not the Truth We Seek is the story of Abigail, a prisoner of war who copes with the harsh realities of her everyday life by escaping into another world that she has created for herself. The world she creates tells the story of a group of abandoned women who have crash landed in a place called Limbo. They must rely on trust, love, and community to survive. Leading the charge is Audrey, the strong, determined, and positive figure in the group. She is accompanied by Paige - her best friend, Chloe - her younger sister, and Clara and Ophelia - high school friends, as they make discoveries on how to live out their new lives. Their fears and morals are put to the test when a frantic and charismatic stranger, Emma, joins their group. Tension threatens to tear apart the group and Abigail soon realizes that maybe this world isn't that removed from her reality as she thought it would be.

the average high school play
Based on real-life experiences and teenage dramas, the fast-paced comedic farce, The Average High School Play, is set in an Ohio high school with a new drama teacher desperately trying to maintain order of his cast for his own play, R & J, a modern spin on Romeo and Juilet. He must deal with two mean girls trying to get him fired, a nerd who doesn't know the word "no," a skater, an overactor, the girl with huge stage fright, a clumsy stage crew, a fashion photographer, frustrated extras and a principal who will not accept failure. This comedy is sure to get you laughing! What will happen in this play that is anything but average?
