Call Your Mother - Presented by CCAE Theatricals

Happy Mother’s Day from Cool Beans Coffee! Our new barista, Marco, is not really in the holiday spirit. After his parents divorced and his dad passed away, Marco hasn’t been able to forgive his mother for moving on and fears that she might abandon him too. As we meet the various quirky personalities in the coffee shop – from the shop owner with the mariachi band, to the sweet elderly woman who just wants to have a conversation at the register, to the office intern on the verge of a nervous breakdown – they all try their best to convince Marco to make amends and call his mother on Mother’s Day. Through an indie/folk score within the eccentric lifestyle of coffee culture, Call Your Mother shows that, while we each have our own separate battles, we don’t have to fight them alone.

Another Day in Paradise - Presented by Blindspot Collective

The Pandemusical Diaries - Presented by Loud Fridge Theatre

With two dozen familiar melodies set to headline stories, emotional outbursts, and relatable perspectives, this one-person presentation captures moments of trauma and triumph through what is [still] an ongoing global pandemic.

Falling on Track - Presented by Jennifer Savion
