Now Playing - November, 2020

by Audrey Cefaly

Directed by Rudy Ramirez
Featuring Liz Beckham, Shannon Grounds, Jennifer Jennings & Jennie Jambon Underwood

A darkly comic southern drama about love, art and the power of healing. After a tornado barrels through North Alabama leaving nothing but death and destruction, only June and her wisecracking pet goat Weezy live to tell the tale.  When Alice, a prominent photographer, arrives to take pictures of June’s scars, all are tipped to the breaking point in this beautiful story of life after death. 

Alabaster premiered in February to unanimous rave reviews, and garnered B. Iden Payne nominations for Best Small Cast and Best Featured Actress for Jennie Jambon Underwood.

Experience Letters from Camp Shrewd for the first time, or relive your camp experience in this 6-episode podcast, starring Taylor Flanangan, Anne Hulsman, Malyssa Quiles, and Jesus Valles, edited and directed by Malyssa Quiles.

The kids of Camp Shrewd are in lockdown, but “extended camp” is not as boring as they expect. As the situation outside deteriorates, the kids find themselves haunted by the ghosts of campers past. With no means of escape, the campers must research and neutralize this supernatural threat themselves....and find their own place in history.

A new play in development by Jesus I. Valles

Several enthusiasts of a local magic/witchcraft shop are surprised when they find themselves in the possession of new and actual, supernatural powers. What will they do with these newfound gifts? Jesus Valles crafts this new play inspired by the modern day practices of brujeria, as an exploration for how the disenfranchised among us find their personal power.

Brujas is part of Shrewd's Sneaky Previews series of new play readings.  Brujas will premiere in late November.
