Plant That Ate Dirty Socks, The

Plant That Ate Dirty Socks, The
For ten-year-old neatnik Norman, sharing a room with his messy older brother Michael is a nightmare-with heaps of crumpled paper, clothes strewn about, and piles of smelly, dirty socks everywhere! One day, Michael sends away for some 'amazing Beans', and before long, the boys are the proud owners of two giant plants. But as the plants grow taller and taller, the boys realize that their socks are mysteriously disappearing! as the plants' hunger for socks continue to grow, Norman and Michael must try to conceal their botanical secret from the rest of the kids on Levitt Lane, especially the frighteningly nosey cheerleader, Patty Jenkins.

Rewrite

Rewrite
ReWrite, a musical comedy triple feature is comprised of three wild musicals that connect in surprising and dangerous ways. Nelson Rocks! is a pop/rock show about a young dude who needs to fix his life before the 'you better get to class' bell rings. Populated by adolescents, the show throbs and pulses along a locker-filled hallway, barreling towards its inevitable showdown. Miss Marzipan is a dizzy musical about the life changing preparation that goes into a high stakes dinner party. In this heightened look at the suburban experience, a little bit of blood is spilt, but nothing that some kitchen towels can't clean up. the Process deals with a writer. With a deadline. as the Dunkin Donuts fills with the voices in his head, the writer must conquer his writer's block and finish his musical. the Dunkin Donuts counter lady acts as our guide through this passionate look into one man's writing process.

Things To Ruin

Synopsis:
Things To Ruin is a theatrical rock concert about human beings who are messy, emotional, drugged up, knocked down, inspired, electric and who don't have nearly enough time to cause the kind of commotion they so desperately need to. Performed by a cast of young singers and a four-piece band led by composer Joe Iconis himself, Things to Ruin rocks with an occasionally profane and always heartfelt explosion of music and high Drama
