Around the World in 80 Days
It's 1872, and Phileas Fogg has accepted a bet to travel around the globe in record time in Jules Verne's classic novel brought to theatrical life by Mark Brown. With his eccentric French manservant, the unflappable Fogg encounters a monsoon at sea, boards a runaway train, and rescues an Indian princess, among other daring adventures. Five actors play dozens of outrageous characters in this mini-epic frothing with madcap excitement. Marcia Milgrom Dodge directs.

Dark of the Moon
Dark of the Moon is a powerful, mystical folk drama. A tale of tragic love, a la Romeo and Juliet, is at the heart of a story which depicts a clash of incongruent worlds - the mountains where witches and other supernatural beings reside and the valley where the humans live. When John, a “witch boy,” falls in love with the beautiful, lusty mortal, Barbara Allen, he makes a pact with a conjurer to gain human status. His wish is granted on the condition that Barbara remains faithful to him for one year as characters from both “worlds” conspire to thwart their happiness. Jack Allison directs
