As You Like It - July, 2024

  • Welcome to the Woods of Will Shakespeare,
  • Welcome to this fairy blessed place,
  • Hear the song of hope in our voices,
  • And see the looks of love on our face,
  • Our story starts at court with frustration,
  • Born of jealous freshly green,
  • Brother versus brother unpleasant,
  • Hurt people being hurtfully mean,
  • But then two people meet unexpected,
  • And with one look they know in their hearts,
  • That something beautiful is beginning,
  • And that’s how healing finally starts,
  • Come along while we play out this sweet story,
  • Of Rosalind and her Orlando,
  • And how his rhymes put up on the tree,
  • Was how their love doth started to grow.


 - April, 2024

  • Come this April, midst of Spring,
  • Is a play about bleak things,
  • Bloody, creepy, wicked screams,
  • Killers troubled by sharp dark dreams,
  • A man and wife, last names Macbeth,
  • Renowned authors of regicidal death,
  • Witchy puppets, ambition wild,
  • Formerly among the mild,
  • Double, double, toil and trouble,
  • Actors bold who shall not mumble,
  • Come and see this ghastly crew,
  • Faces familiar and some new,
  • Healing Garden, Webster Street,
  • Our acting spot is so damn sweet.

A Christmas Carol - December, 2023

  • In screens aglow, a tale unfolds. A modern Carol, in codes is told. Scrooge, with heart so icy cold, across the web, his story's told.

Ghosts of Past and Present blend, in pixels, their messages send. Families meet through video's art, joy and love warm every heart.

Future's shadow, grim and dark, a call to change, to make a mark. Scrooge, awakened, learns to share, kindness and love fill the air.

In bits and bytes, the message true, spread goodwill, in all you do. A modern Carol, short and sweet, love and joy, the world to greet!
