        Alabama Story

                (October 17th-19th 2019)

Presented by Seat of Our Pants Readers Theatre Troupe 

Set in Montgomery, Alabama in 1959, Alabama Story mixes real and fictional people to tell a fact-inspired fable about tests of character in

a time of social turbulence. Censorship, civil rights, children’s literature

and the freedom to read are elements in this highly theatrical tale set in “the Deep South of the imagination.” A bullying but complex segregationist senator wants a controversial children’s book taken off the library shelves, but a fearless librarian — no less complicated — refuses, putting both

of their worlds at risk.

I'm A Father Under Construction
(June 13th-29th 2019)

"I'm a Father Under Construction" explored the complex issue from a perspective within the LGBTQ+ community, featuring live music, dance, theatre, visual art and more... Even in their absence, we all feel the impact of our fathers. Sometimes, we have to search outside of our own family to find the mentorship and guidance we need from a father-figure. Separation, trauma, the passage into adulthood, and especially parenting, can make us reflect on the expectations we have of the person we call father.
