In Suspense

Opens on Friday, November 13, 2015 and runs Thu-Sat at 8pm and Sun at 2pm through November 28 (no performance on Thanksgiving Day).

Written by Leonard D. Goodisman.

Five lives are put at stake when Marie, a high school sophomore, gets suspended from school for an alleged computer attack and begins to believe she may truly not belong. Her parents, sensing this is their fight as well, jump up to take action against the school principal, who believes she has done the best she can in carrying out the suspension. However, tensions rise when Marie’s father meets a lawyer who proudly tells him of the biggest accomplishment of his career – the very law that made Marie’s suspension so easy – and everyone begins to face the reality that their “best” may have led them down a darker path than intended.

Live Mystery Comedy Radio Shows!



The movie star sister team of Lila and Lola Davenport will stop at nothing for one of them to land the coveted lead in the sequel to “Hello Dolly”; “Goodbye, Dolly” which includes hiring Rhonda Something-Broadway Private Eye, to dig up dirt on the other divas auditioning for the role. When attempts are made on the life of the leading diva candidate, Rhonda Something must put aside her limited notion of ethics and attempt to solve the attempted murder.


Junior detective series sleuth Nancy Doo is in for another adventure as she and her pals sell enough organic fake fruit to go on a ski trip for their winter break from Mrs. Tunafish’s Academy For Mediocre White Girls. When the bus runs out of gas, the girls must spend the night in the creepy haunted Romanian castle (although they are just outside of Cleveland) of Baroness Von Von Von Until Her Daddy Takes The T-Bird Away. When a ski pole is used as a murder weapon-Nancy Doo is on the case!

“It’s just brilliant!” THOMYORKE, RADIOHEAD

Whilst touring with Radiohead one fateful night in Miami, McQueen Adams impressed the band with an impersonation so fresh an idea was born. Adams has created a fusion of music, comedy and video, which parodies pop stars, movies and a variety of celebrities. It’s a jamboree of songs, stunts and sketches, and the material’s range stretches from subjects as varied as the sounds of Daft Punk to the magic of the wizard Gandalf, with some Jason Statham, Orlando Bloom and Coldplay along the way.

Transmitting a hi-tech audio-visual experience, McQueen creates an incredibly unique new universe. It collides with planet Earth for the first time this spring so prepare for a blast!
