During World War II, an elite group of female pilots became pioneers, heroes, and role models. They were the Women Air Force Service Pilots; the first American women to fly military aircraft.

Their biggest battles were fought on the ground; the women struggled daily with sexual harassment, discrimination, and sabotage. Based on real incidents, the play tells the story of four of these young women, and the cost of their commitment and patriotism.

‘Twas the Month Before Christmas

a comedy by Doug Jarecki

December 11 – 20, 2015
Directed by James Fletcher

We have all heard the story of what happened that magical night in the manger in Bethlehem, but ever wonder about the story before the story? ‘TWAS THE MONTH BEFORE CHRISTMAS takes a look at the lives of Joseph and Mary, the three kings, and the innkeeper, and shows you what things might have been like leading up to that night. This sweet and silly play is sure to put you in the holiday spirit as it shows you that we all have a role to play in the greatest story ever told.

THREE DAYS OF RAIN by Richard Greenberg

Carte Blanche Studios would like to announce its next play of the 2012/2013 season,

THREE DAYS OF RAIN

No matter how much evidence or how many artifacts we may have, do we ever really know what happened in the past? And do we ever truly know our parents? A notebook entry, a will… Act I of Richard Greenberg’s play Three Days of Rain explores the strained yet loving relationship between siblings Walker and Nan and their family friend Pip, while they attempt in vain to find some sense in the confusing will left to them dividing the spoils of their fathers’ wildly successful architecture firm, and figure out what really happened between their parents. Act II transports us back in time to 1960 and allows us to see the same actors playing their parents thirty-five years earlier, in a happier time, unraveling for us the darkened mystery of the two families’ intertwining puzzle.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Richard Greenberg is considered to be one of the leading playwrights of our day, having had several plays produced on Broadway, most notably ”Take Me Out,” his 2002 script for which he won a Tony Award for Best Play. Both “Take me Out” and “Three Days of Rain” have led him to be a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Drama. His witty, biting, and truthfully humorous depictions of middle-class American life have been the subject of more than 25 plays that premiered on and off-Broadway in New York City and eight at Los Angeles’ South Coast Repertory Theatre, including The Violet Hour, Everett Beekin, and Hurrah at Last.

In this hilarious and irreverent send-up, Santa is hosting his annual holiday party attended by the usual holiday favorites: Frosty, Tiny Tim, The Little Drummer Boy, and Rudolph, who all have a bone to pick with Santa. After the introduction of the sexy new Little Drummer Girl, tempers flare, and Santa ends up with a candy cane through the heart. No one will confess, no one can leave, and Christmas is in jeopardy. As the tension builds, a couple of incompetent detectives enter the scene, and all the dirty secrets of these iconic holiday characters are revealed. Eventually, with the help of the audience, the murderer is convicted and sentenced.

Who Killed Santa? is an alternative, adult, show featuring parodies of holiday songs, and four possible endings determined by which suspect the audience accuses, and gratuitous puppet violence.

We recommend it for ages 16+. Don’t bring the kiddies.

See you at the show!

I’m sure you folks have heard the story by now.  Religious zealotry meets ignorance, ignorance breeds fear, fear leads to panic.  Throw in a whole bunch of misinformation and overreaction and you get a theatre company which needs to find a new home.  Theatre folk come to the rescue and you get a production that needs an audience.  Let’s dwell on the positive now.

THE BIBLE: THE COMPLETE WORD OF GOD (Abridged) takes audiences on a wild and hilarious ride through the Good Book. At break-neck speed, three actors parody the “greatest story ever accepted as fact,” wrestling with some of the great theological questions like, “Did Adam and Eve have navels?” “Did Moses really look like Charlton Heston?” and “Why isn’t the word ‘phonetic’ spelled the way it sounds?” This is a show that puts the fun in fundamentalism, proving that God has a sense of humor. Fire and Brimstone anyone?


It looks like David Cecsarini has put his money where his mouth is and come to the rescue of this show.  Put your butts in the seat and take a stand against censorship and right-wing nut jobs.
