Local Authors Series:  Selected Works of Ben Plopper

November 7 - 16, 2019

Ben Plopper has no earthly idea how he got here, from a day job as a technical writer for a financial services company to a featured playwright. He is constantly surprised at even the modicum of success he has had writing for (and winning) several Spontaneous Smattering 24-Hour Play Festivals and for a goofy play about vapid, self-absorbed Brits who are so focused on their extramarital affairs and planning the perfect dinner party that they didn’t notice a zombie in their midst (The Importance of Eating Earnest). He is always working on the next big thing, and maybe someday he’ll finish it before something else strikes his fancy as “the next big thing," like a squirrel with a shiny object in its mouth. He is thrilled to present this collection of shorts—some from previous works and some original pieces—and hopes you enjoy the mix of humor, existential dread, and a weird fixation on subjects of theology and philosophy. And though he dwells in Fort Worth, he considers the Houston theater scene his home-away-from home, and holds nothing but gratitude for his drama-family who have given him so many wonderful opportunities. He should have been a theater-nerd in High School. More on his writing and philosophizing at www.benplopper.com.  . This production contains adult subject matter and salty language.

Scrooge Macbeth

SUNDAY MATINEE, December 15 AT 2:00 P.M.

A holiday farce of Shakespearean proportions, by David MacGregor

Produced by Special Arrangement with Heuer Publishing LLC

of Cedar Rapids, Iowa

It’s not another retelling of “A Christmas Carol.”  Scrooge Macbeth takes the meaning of “the show must go on” to a whole new level. Bob, Sylvia, Victor, and Renee are the last four actors standing when a food poisoning outbreak sidelines most of the cast on the opening night of the Hartland Community Theatre's holiday production of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale. Thanks to the ensuing violent collision between everything Christmas and everything Shakespeare, you will never think of Shakespeare or Christmas in quite the same way again

A Seussified Christmas Carol

SATURDAYS

December 7 – 21, 2019 AT 11:00 A.M. and 1:30 P.M. 

SUNDAY  MATINEE, December 8, 2019 at 2:00 P.M.

By Peter Bloedel

Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.

A whimsical reinvention of Dickens' most beloved Christmas story in wacky rhymed couplets. With zoot fruited juices, and binka bird geese, from Bed-Headed Fred, to Timmy Loo Hoo, this tale of glorious holiday cheer is similar to something Dr. Seuss might have come up with, if he ever had his way with the story.
