Sep 20, 7:30"My Name Is...." by David Norum   A set of monologues about a story of Annie and her struggles and a court trial with domestic violence. Based on a true story.

Sep 21, 7:30 "The Monkey King" by Chris McElwain is the story of a magical being (later know as the monkey king/Sun WuKong/great sage heaven's equal) created from an ancient stone obelisk struck by lightning and his exploits to try to cheat death and gain godly power believing he is superior to all things.


Sep 22, 2:00"Peace Be With You" by Eric Eberwein is the pounding, relentless story of Lee, a young man entering the U.S. Marine Corps. We escort Lee along his transformation and feel the tightening cords of love, duty, and purpose binding him. We see an honest unraveling of the effects the military has on America's youth.

Sep 22, 5:00 "A Slow Waltz in a Southern Clime" by Lee Brady... A play about lies and how they harm and destroy relationships. Each of the characters lie, both big and small to achieve their goals.

Sep 23, 2:00 "Perseus and The Gorgon's Gaze" by Mark Cunningham   A mythical tale of Prince Perseus and his pursuit to save his mother from a horrid king. But all is not what it seem when he meets Medusa and finds the meaning behind her turning into a beast. Full of Gods and Goddesses this is the tale we all know and love.

 Sep 23, 5:00 "After the Sermon" by Nina Solomita twists and turns the audience on their ear as we frantically follow Maggie the Minister through the blurring lines of reality and fiction. Guided along by none other than 1950's TV star George Burns, we discover if she will forge through towards greener pastures... or stay in the ever circling labyrinth that entangles her mind.

"American Night: The Ballad of Juan Jose

  As Juan José feverishly studies for his citizenship exam, his obsession to pass takes him on a fantastical odyssey through U.S. history guided by a handful of unsung citizens who made courageous choices in some of the country’s toughest times. American Night: The Ballad of Juan José is a provocative, irreverent, and hilarious mix of past and present, stereotype and  truth.

The Lusty Adventures of Tom Jones
Sept 28 – Oct  14

​​The Lusty Adventures of Tom Jones
freely adapted by Jon Jory based on the the classic novel by Henry Fielding Directed by Ken Kelleher, in the Outdoor Forest Theater

BASED ON THE 1963 ACADEMY AWARD BEST PICTURE

PacRep's annual Forest Theatre offering is a rollicking and naughty adaptation of Henry Fielding’s ribald classic Tom Jones.  Abandoned as a child to the care of Squire Allworthy, Tom Jones is now all grown up and launched into the bewildering romantic world. He falls madly in love with the virtuous Sophia Western -- but Sophia's father is determined to keep the two apart.

In his pursuit of true love, the well-intentioned Tom finds himself the object of female attention and romantic complication. But will these  misadventures permanently jeopardize his chances with Sophia? Tom Jones is a bawdy and rollicking comedy for the stage that will have the audience in stitches.

Cabaret sensation Barbara Brussell will perform her latest musical presentation, "Come What Mae – A Mother of a Show."  at the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts
 
Mae Brussell was dynamic, passionate, generous, smart, direct, hilarious, and memorable!  Seventeen-years on radio — in "Dialogue Conspiracy" and "World Watchers" — provided a weekly platform to share her digesting of the news. Mae was known as one of the foremost researchers of the Kennedy assassinations, the Watergate scandal, other alleged conspiracies in America and beyond.
 
"Thirty years ought to be a sufficient amount of time to write a cabaret show about your deceased mother, right?" Barbara wonders.
