Our Summer Intensive production is Heartland by Kevin Heelan.

We are on the front porch of Skeet's house in a small mid western town. It is evening, and senseless death is on the rampage. That day, several upstanding citizens have been murdered by a psychopath on the loose, and Earl is determined to do something about it. Earl is a macho fool, one of life's losers, and he sees this as an opportunity to restore some of his lost status in the community.

Performance dates are August 19th at 8 pm and 20th at 2 pm, 2017.

Tickets are $15.
