A Comedy by Jay Huling
October 9 to 25, 2020

When “not-entirely-honest” entrepreneur Josh finds himself in financial trouble, he cons his evangelical brother Jon into starting their own church. Josh and Jon raise so much money they’re able to pay off most of their debts. Then the IRS shows up! The laughs are non-stop as the boys try to solve one comic complication after another.

A Comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten
December 4 to 20, 2020

Somewhere in the Texas heartland, lies the brand new town of Doublewide – Population, 10.  It’s Christmas time, and it’s beginning to look a lot like trouble. Doublewide is being double crossed by the county and might lose their status as a town. Maybe if they win the countywide “Battle of The Mangers,” their Christmas will be saved.
