    First Look: Wednesday, April 19 @ -7:30pm

    Bliss Point by Joan Castignone   directed by Melody Brooks

    Alice and her estranged son Bruce must find a way to heal the past, even though they have not seen each other in 50 years…well not in this world anyway.

    Ready for Primetime: Monday, April 17 @ 3:00pm; Tuesday, April 18 @7:30pm

    Mommy's Little Princess by Teresa Lotz directed by Celia Braxton

    Lotz challenges our assumptions about relationship "norms" when Ingrid, her fiancé,

    and her new roommate  find a unique way to play house.

    Up and Coming: Monday, April 17 @7:30pm

    Splendid Grace by Charlotte Colavin, directed by Mary McGinley

    In this epic story of three women carrying on their quiet and seemingly simple lives, Colavin asks the eternal question: "you ever wonder what it would be, if it wasn't this?"

    From the Archive: Thursday, April 20th @ 7:30pm

    Mother of God! by Michele Miller directed by Melody Brooks

    Written by a Jewish mother about the ultimate Jewish Mother, you won't find this story in your family Bible! Profound, profane, humorous, thought-provoking, and somewhat  historically accurate.

    Finalist for the Princess Grace Foundation Award, 2012, NPTC Workshop Production, March 2011.
