When Mrs. Baker, his fifth grade teacher, arrives unexpectedly at his classroom, she is stunned to see that it is an exact replica of hers, down to the ditto machine he purchased one E-bay to do his handouts. He has modeled everything he does and teaches on what he recalls from Mrs. Baker. Everything. The only thing missing from his perfect classroom is Mrs. Baker herself.

Despite their interfering parents, Terri and Joe endeavor to forge an honest connection while waiting for their flight to depart. The parents of both Terri and Joe are always on stage as they are always in the subconscious.

The Women Order by George Hickenlooper and directed by David Hymel. 3 men,2 women
After dumping a full chamber pot on the head of a passing Yankee soldier, twenty-year old Adele Cutuere finds herself incarcerated, following Union General Benjamin Butler's draconian Woman's Order Number 28, which stipulates that any female in occupied New Orleans who publicly insults one of his men may be treated as a common prostitute. Sharing the cell with Adele is sophisticated madam.
Knock Off, by Joe Gulla, directed by Jay Menchaca. 2M, 2W Geraldine Digennaro is a Mafia chick from the Bronx. Her uncle got her a job at the Soho Art Gallery he owns. This is a whole new world for Geraldine. . . Sure she's engaged to Vanity Fair Magazine's "Artist of the Moment"--Shep Evantide. But, even that does not prepare her for the NYC art gallery scene. Bitchy art snobs, gay gallerists, real prada. Oh my!

Did You Know?
On the third Wednesday of every month Theatre Southwest holds it's monthly Membership meeting. Far from a tedious recap of the monthly business (oh, there's some of that, but only the necessary stuff) we entertain our members with either a scene from the show currently in rehearsal, or a workshop scene directed and rehearsed by our members. The public is welcome, so please attend. We would love to see you there.
