than you'd ever imagine. She is Judy Garland. Indianapolis favorite Georgeanna

Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead
March 18 - 26
When CB's dog dies from rabies, he begins to question the
existence of an afterlife. His best friend is too burnt out to provide any
coherent speculation; his sister has gone goth; his ex-girlfriend has recently
been institutionalized; and his other friends are too inebriated to give him
any sort of solace. But a chance meeting with an artistic kid, the target of
this group's bullying, offers CB a peace of mind and sets in motion a
friendship that will push teen angst to the very limits.
A Killer Musical by Stephen Sondheim & John
May 27 - June 12
Bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny,
ASSASSINS lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to
assassinate the President of the United States, in a historical
"revusical" that explores the dark side of the American experience.
From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers Stephen Sondheim and John
Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller
coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different
historical periods meet, interact, and inspire each other to harrowing acts in
the name of the American Dream.
Bugsy Malone Jr.
July 29 - August 7
Based on the hit 1976 film starring a pre-teen Scott Baio
and Jodi Foster and featuring a catchy, swinging score by the composer of The
Muppet Movie, BUGSY MALONE JR. is good, clean, comedic fun! Two gangs comprised
completely of children, square off in a 1920s rivalry of Capone-ian standards.
Dandy Dan's gang has gotten the upper hand since obtaining the
"splurge" gun , a weapon that shoots whipped cream. Now Fat Sam and
his bumbling buffoons are in real trouble! Bugsy Malone, a one-time boxer, is
thrust not-so-willingly into the gangster limelight when he becomes the last
chance Fat Sam's gang has of surviving.
