An Act of God

The One with the first and last word on everything has finally arrived to set the record straight. After many millennia, God, aided by his favorite archangels, straight-laced Gabriel and an inquisitive newcomer Michael, answers some of the deepest questions that have plagued mankind since Creation. This satirical peek at the existence of God’s universe delivers a new and improved set of Ten Commandments, hilariously presented to us by the Lord himself.

The Wedding Singer

Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, it's 1985, and rock star wannabe, Robbie Hart, is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and, unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. This 80’s inspired musical will have you up on your feet!

Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean

In a small town dime store in West Texas, the "Disciples of James Dean" reunite for the twentieth anniversary of the actor's death. Now middle-aged women, they were teenagers when Dean filmed Giant two decades ago in nearby Marfa, Texas. One of them, an extra in the film, has a child whom she says was conceived with Dean during the shoot. The ladies' congenial reminiscences mingle with flash backs to their youth; then the arrival of a mysterious but familiar stranger sets off a series of confrontations that smash their delusions and expose bitter truths.
