October 19-November 3, 2018:

The Rocky Horror Show


That sweet transvestite and his motley crew did the Time Warp on Broadway in a 25th anniversary revival. Complete with sass from the audience, cascading toilet paper, and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock 'n' roll sci-fi gothic musical is more fun than ever.


"A musical that deals with mutating identity and time warps becomes one of the most mutated, time-warped phenomena in show business." - The New York Times


Adult Cast: Click Here For Tickets


No outside prop bags. Prop bags are available at the door for $5.



A One Night Engagement






















October 20th, 2018

A Night Of Split Personalities

(Edna & Jamey on Stage)

You all know you have questions. Now is the chance to ask them! For an hour and a half Edna and Jamey will answer all the questions you have ever had about life, theatre, love and how to survive it all. For the first 45 minutes Edna (the drag queen) will entertain and astonish with you with her life story, pausing for questions from the audience as she goes. For the last 45 minutes Jamey will endure a ROAST from his peers and coworkers in a no holds barred Q&A/commentary with opportunities from the crowd to ask all the questions they have ever wanted to know. But be careful, these answers are blatantly honest. Every time you stump Edna with a question she will take a shot.

Join us at 7:00 to take pictures with the one and only Rex Manning. Throw darts at a carboard cut out of Rex or even throw a pie at the man himself.
