Mister and Missus can’t help thinking that if only they didn’t have the expense of clothing and feeding You Lad, they could afford the Household Weapon for Monster Defense (Household WMD), the very latest in Anti-Monster Security Systems technology. Then they hit upon a brilliant solution that gets the boy off their hands, brings in the money for the Household WMD, and ultimately brings about the realization of their worst nightmare. A darkly funny, post-industrial Dickensian fable featuring a variety of styles of puppets, including Czech marionettes and bunraku-style (three-person) puppets.

Yoga at SVT classes will tone and heat the body as well as focus on alignment and flexibility. This series offers a playful sequence of poses and movement designed to build strength, guide the breath and allow ease to flow in. Adriene’s classes blend flowing movement with a lighthearted attitude and a clear attention to detail. Class ends with a relaxing cool down to leave you calm and centered. All levels welcome.

Gnap! Theater Projects
Gnap! Theater Projects presents and produces theatrical events that are both deliberately experimental and unashamedly populist, often utilizing modes of theater making that are artistically unfashionable and obsolete, including improvisation, short sketches, site specific performance art, and historical re-envisioning. Gnap! Theater Projects is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of ways of making narrative function in a theatrical setting. Gnap! Theater Projects work is intended for experienced theater audiences and theater-going novices alike.
Get-up, improv duo Shannon McCormick and Shana Merlin, performs every 3rd Friday at 8pm on our Studio stage.
No Shame, an open mic night for comedy and live performance, every 1st and 3rd Friday at 10pm in the Studio.
