Mr. Chickee's Funny Money follows 10-year-old Steven, a self-proclaimed spy and president of the Flint Future Detectives Club. At the heart of this whimsical journey is an intelligent entrepreneurial boy who is asked to unlock the secret behind a mysterious bill.

Spunky 9-year-old Ana is faced with a very big question. One one hand, as her alter-ego, Barrio Grrrl, with her invisible sidekick, Amazing Voice, she's pretty busy preserving justice in the barrio and protecting her neighborhood. On the other hand, in the world where Ana lives with her abuelo and misses her mom who is far, far away in Iraq, reality is sneaking up on her. It's time for Ana to decide what's the most important: being a superhero, or a girl who works little miracles in real life.

Conceived by Michael Bigelow Dixon.

Haunting and hilarious, Shakespeare in Mind takes a strange and wondrous trip through a dozen "post-modern Elizabethan" plays, poems and songs. Motifs of fear and murder, love and death, dreams and destiny weave in and out of our modern minds that Shakespeare now inhabits. And just like Will's own plays, this dynamic production interweaves comedy, romance, song and tragedy as it presents contemporary characters interacting with Macbeth and Duncan, Juliet and Titus Andronicus, Othello and Desdemona, and 20 other classic characters. Together these works celebrate and reimagine the theatrical universe of the Bard for a technology-driven-21st-Century audience.

By Henry Fielding and Mark Brown.
Full Length Play, Comedy
CASTING: 15M, 10F, 3M or F

In this thrilling adventure of the heart, Tom Jones, a charming young man of questionable birth, is madly in love with Sophia Western. But when Sophia's father arranges for her to marry a loathsome man, she flees for her life. Aristocrats, wenches and scalawags abound in this bawdy and rollicking romp through the back roads and bedchambers of England.

By Nicholas Korn.

CASTING: 5M, 3F

When four suitors arrive to ask for the hands of Signor Di Lirio's three lovely daughters, the old gentleman agrees, as long as they have the approval of their mother. And that's where the problems begin -- the old man's wife died three years ago, and he has gone so mad with grief that he still believes she is alive. However, one of the suitors is the town scoundrel, Giovio, who plays a series of kind-hearted but hilarious tricks that bring the father back to sanity and the intended couples together.
