Floodpants
by Fran Pado

Floodpants is a dark musical fairytale for grownups, written and performed by Fran Pado, that borrows from the children’s book Grinny by Nicholas Fisk. It’s the story of the Girl, a 9yr. old eeking it out in a crumbling blue-collar New Jersey town in the 70’s, and the haunted, horrifying old lady who comes to visit and refuses to leave. Grinny:- kind’ve like a granny, but.. she hypnotizes the Girl’s hippie mother, and proceeds to set about her evil, stellar-sational plot. It’s up to the the Girl and her psychic younger brother to save, well, everything.

Featuring pot-smoking dads, 3rd grade meditation circles, and all that made N.J.in a twisted place in a twisted time.

Music by Goddess: a homemade one-string fiddle, Casio picked off a junk pile, and perhaps the world’s greatest guitarist.

Bob Bannister– guitar
Tamalyn Miller– fiddle
Andy Newman– Keyboard and percussion

The Pickle Twins
by Katharine Scarborough and Tim Girrbach

Alana and Alamo Pickle, heirs to a condiment conglomerate, are fully grown, adult twins who should be able to take care of themselves. Their governess for the last 34 years, Didi, has passed away and they desperately need a new nanny. Is it YOU? Watch these heirs to the Cornichon Fortune put on a talent show as they try to lure you into taking on the impossible task of saving these perverted recluses from themselves. Featuring some of their self-proclaimed hits like “Didi Says No!” and “Wash Your Own Back.” Part variety hour, part job interview, where you, the audience will compete to meet their bizarre demands. You should be honored, The Pickle Twins are kind of a big dill. Grey Gardens meets Whatever Happened To Baby Jane, 100% Demented.
