Good Boys and True

By Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa

A suspenseful mystery set in the hothouse atmosphere of an all-male boarding school, exploring
themes of friendship, romance, honor and betrayal. Prep-school senior Brandon Hardy is
brilliant, athletic, popular and charming—the kind of student that makes St. Joe's School for
Boys proud to call its own. However, his privileged life threatens to collapse when a disturbing
videotape is found on campus. As the resulting scandal takes unexpected turns, Brandon's
mother Elizabeth must sort fact from fiction from family and confront unsettling truths
about her son, herself, and their life.

The Rocky Horror Show

Book, Music, and Lyrics by Richard O'Brien

While driving home during a rain filled night, straight-laced lovebirds Brad and Janet, by chance,
end up at the castle of one Dr. Frank-N-Furter and his strange and bizarre entourage, and find
that he's having a party. This is no ordinary party, no ordinary night. This is the unveiling of the
Dr's latest creation: Rocky; A man-made Adonis that will give...absolute pleasure.
"The Rocky Horror Show" is a musical camp satire of the golden days of the B-movie horror and
science-fiction genres. Like the movie, the play gives "audience participation" a new meaning!
This shall be a night that both Brad and Janet (and you!) will remember for a long time in this
sexually kinky, rock-n-roll musical featuring a transvestite scientist and his time warped plans.
