Dope Fiend, Jailbird, and their son Tiny Banger are a homeless family trying to survive an increasingly hostile city illustrated by a contemporary spin on Charlie Chaplin’s Tramp archetype and film aesthetic. Pervasive perceptions about homelessness lead to criminalization measures that keep this family trapped in the cycle of homelessness and incarceration. As the silent film world strips away, audiences encounter the messy, complex world in which the family actually lives. The Tiny Banger is a Workshop Production of the new play by Alice Stanley. Directed by Adam Sussman, The Tiny Banger stars Ray Roberts, Alaithia Valez, Sean Moran, Juliet Embry, Elizabeth Mason, Khali McDuff, Amani Alexander, and Brandon Pegram. Additional performances will occur at United Methodist Church at 10am on Dec. 8; at Trinity Street Players in partnership with Mobile Loaves and Fishes Dec 17 at 7pm; and at Community First Amphitheatre Dec 20 at 7:30pm.

Tuna Christmas

Everything's bigger in Texas, and that includes Christmas. Tuna is an outrageous holiday comedy of southern fun and charm. December in the Lone Star state and radio station OKKK news personalities Thurston Wheelis and Arles Struvie report on the craziness that has gripped Tuna, Texas (population: 24), including an imperiled pageant, a sabotaged yard- decorating contest, and a Christmas phantom on the loose and spreading havoc. With quick-change zaniness and quicksilver one-liners, two incredibly talented actors introduce us to twenty-two of the wildest citizens in one small town bringing “joy to the world” in true big Texas fashion.

Dec 20 - Jan 5!

Thursdays - Saturdays 8pm. Sundays 3pm. Two actors. Twenty-two characters. One hilarious holiday night! Starring Scot Friedman and Rick Smith. Directed by Robyn Conner.
