Ice Cold: Crossroads of America
by Patrick Vermillion and Teddy Dinner
Great news! Patrick and Teddy have written a 10-hour, five-act play. The problem? They only have 20 minutes. Tonight they’ll do their best to condense their epic work, Ice Cold: Crossroads of America, into a delicious bite-sized piece. Can a play that was written to feature car chases, knife fights, actual helicopters and a functioning hot tub be performed with a budget of 100 dollars? Of course, why not?
Written and directed by: Teddy Diner and Patrick Vermillion
Performances by: Jesse Koehler, Ethan Graham-Horowitz, Isabella Carter, Mckenzie Anderson, Austen Halpern-Graser, Melody Cao and Ethan Beach

cw: There will be some cursing!
by Kelsey Sullivan
Worm is quite happy being a just that: a worm. However, there is one thing missing – this worm wants teeth. And you, yes you, are going to help it get them! Follow along on Worm’s journey as it meets old friends, sings some songs, and discovers how far it’s willing to go for some pearly whites.
In the end, it is up to you – will you help Worm get the teeth it wants? Or will you take things a step further and help it get what it really needs?
Director – Alex Moon
Worm – Alexandra Hess
Dentist – Abrah Katzman
Frog/Fox/Bug – Caroline Younglove
