Current Production 

 

From the team that brought you the 2013 smash, Daffodil Girls, Inspired by David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross, comes a dysfunctional dark comedy just in time for the holidays. With a concept by Bren Rapp and written and directed by DFW Critics Forum Award honored writer and director Jeff Swearingen, Yes Virginia Woolf, There is a Santa Claus is a satirical twist on the Albee classic featuring four young critically acclaimed actors bringing tidings that fall way south of comfort and joy. Yes Virginia Woolf, There is a Santa Claus examines the breakdown of the marriage of the world's most jolly couple, Martha and Santa Claus. Late one evening, after a toy factory faculty party, the two receive guests, a younger snowman couple, Slick and Flakey, and draw the happy jolly souls into their toxic relationship. The illusion of the Claus’ picture perfect, merry marriage and the illusions that make life bearable for the Claus family while living at the North Pole come crashing down like a hazardous icicle to the eye in one not so silent night. Featuring 2013’s DFW Critics Forum Outstanding Actress Honoree, Kennedy Waterman (13) as Martha, Doak Campbell Rapp (16) as Santa Claus, 2014’s DFW Critics Forum Outstanding Actor Honoree Jaxon Beeson (13) as Slick the Snowman, and Taylor Donnelson (16) as Flakey.

Actor's Exploration Series

The Actor’s Exploration Series is aimed at challenging our young actors while pushing the boundaries of what audiences expect to see from “children’s theater”. Going beyond the traditional models of youth productions, our Actor’s Exploration Series centers on giving young actors the opportunity to explore complex material and for audiences to be exposed to playwrights, dramatic formats and subject matter not thought of as children’s fare. It is an unparalleled educational opportunity for the next generation of actors and an entertainment option for the theatrically savvy as well as those just being introduced to the art of theatre.

 

Next up in the series, Sam Shepherd's True West
