My Perfect Feet by Andy Hobin
A veteran returns from the Iraq War, scarred over his whole body from burn wounds he received in combat. He knows that life is never going to be the same, for him or his family. But what he's not prepared for is the reaction of his daughter, who is now scared to look at him or be alone with him. Over the course of this heartbreaking monologue, both father and daughter learn a new and deeper definition of love.
A New Leash on Life by Brady Mueller
A New Leash on Life is about a normal young boy named Kevin, who goes through a not so normal transformation: he's transformed by a mad scientist into a dog. Not only does this provide the opportunity for an unbelievable amount of dog-related puns, it also lets Kevin and his dad see each other in a new light. They have to work together, for maybe the first time ever, in order to change Kevin back into a dog. Hilarious, wacky, and touching.
Ridgeville Elementary School's Extremely Talinted Show by Matthew Yasuoka
Principal Homer barely keeps things together at his school, although it's not entirely clear if he cares. There's nothing more here than a talent show full of extremely weird, obnoxious, and crazy kids, from rappers and Richard Nixon puppeteers to time travelers and a kid whose talent is making shapes with his fat. When the kids' parents get in on the action, it's all the wacky Principal can do to keep the whole show together. An amazing piece for performers who love interpreting lots of characters - and we mean lots, close to two dozens - and want to show off their skills. Don't miss a performance of this one!
