Claire comes home too late for Tom to believe she was just out with the girls, so he kills her. Or so it seems.

Not amused, Joey-Boy hooks up the toaster with a puddle of water, and all three of his friends fry.

Sing This

Synopsis:
Leon, the house janitor, cleans up after the local musical production. When alan, the star, hears him sing, he invites Leon to join the community theater group. Leon will have nothing to do with it: it's out of his interest, his class, his race. Seeing through the arrogance, Alan spies an interest in music and Drama and convinces Leon to give lessons in acting. The two strike a tender and delicate balance amidst raunchy language, veiled lies, and lots of humor.

Time Out

Synopsis:
Will Jaimie Krebs finally play one basketball game after four years on the bench? Not if the Coach can help it. The announcer builds the crowd into a frenzy; everyone else has fouls out and, with 2 minutes to go, they are short one man. Jaimie goes in, to the roar of the crowds, and brings home the prize trophy. Then - the coach wakes him up; he'd fallen asleep on the bench. Four years as a very good sport.

Top Of 16

Synopsis:
at rehearsal for a new play, the scene is fairly physical and must be rehearsed over and over, but it only gets worse. When questioned about this, the director begs for commitment. . . that is until he gets a call saying he's wanted for a bigger show; then he's out the door in a flash and the actors commit to directing themselves.
