A Funny Thing Happened on the way to Fifth Period by Jason Pizzarello

Directed by: Brigitte Brase
Genre: Comedy/farce
Rating:  PG
Synopsis:

To win his freedom from school bully Bugs, smart aleck Tommy offers to help him get a date to the prom with popular actress Stephanie Mezaluna. But the only way to get her attention is to convince her that Bugs is a famous actor in hiding, and as one cover-up leads to another, it’s not long before a jock, Steve, is parading as Bug’s slick New York agent, and Tommy is stuck trying to get Steve’s sister a date to the prom. Of course, prom tickets are only on sale until fifth period — so Tommy has to act fast and try to control the chaos in this wild high school hallway farce.

 

Phantoms by Laurie Woodward

Directed by Kyarah Morgan
Genre: Drama
Rating:  PG
Synopsis:

A school field trip ended abruptly when a car swerved in front of the school bus, and now, Amy and Tammy are back in the classroom trying to recall what happened after the harrowing incident but they can’t seem to communicate with their friends and teachers, who act as if the two aren’t there! Slowly, the two realize they are caught, suspended in another dimension, and trying desperately to get back to the real world where their family and friends are frantically trying to coax them back with love, affection, and warmth. A haunting and eerie play, yet a beautiful, heartwarming fantasy.
