Dinny is just the average young American musician. He has only one fault; he is foolish, greedy, gullible, vain, confused, inconsiderate, lustful, ignorant, selfish, etc. He believes he deserves only the best and will settle for nothing less. When a chance meeting with three witches halts time and gives him everything he wants, he is forced to make a decision that will change the world.
This satirical comic fairy tale with songs is a rarely staged departure from the playwright of the classic Helen Keller play and film, The Miracle Worker.

Violet is determined to show the world, not to mention the cool kids at school, just how special she is.

Under the name Miss Electricity, Violet zaps her way through circuits, bullies and tests, but could lose everything when the power goes to her head.

Crimes of the Heart - By Beth Henley
April 28-30 • 7:30 pm
May 1 • 2:00 pm
Winner of the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. An astonishing first play, initially presented by the Actors Theatre of Louisville, then Off-Broadway, and then on Broadway, where it established the author as a major voice in theatre.
Warm-hearted, irreverent, zany and brilliantly imaginative, the play teems with humanity and humor as it examines the plight of three young Mississippi sisters betrayed by their passions.
