Thursday, June 30 Film Fest X: The Black Hole The redheaded stepchild of Star Wars! In the year 2030, an exploratory space crew finds a derelict spaceship on the edge of a black hole, and decides to investigate. One giant red robot and one crazy German scientist later, they’re rethinking their decision. This sci-fi flop will be narrated by one of its biggest
fans making up for having never staged a version of it in his backyard at age eight!
Thursday, June 30 to Sunday, August 7 Pine Box Theater Company presents: A GIRL WITH SUN IN HER EYES by Joshua Rollins It’s 6am and an undercover female police officer has been reported missing for several hours on the South Side of Chicago. The last person to see her is now the primary suspect in her disappearance. Two veteran police officers with complex ties to the missing officer–and each other–lead the interrogation.

Friday, July 1 to Friday, July 22 The Davenports: An Improvised Soap Opera Meet The Davenports, Lincoln, Nebraska’s billionaire first family of dance. They’ve got enough scandals, secrets, and enemies to fill Mariah Carey’s shoe closet 14 times over. Evil senators? Love triangles? Bitch slapping? Count on the Davenports to put the funny in your late night theatre experience.
Friday, July 1 CARLA MORRISON Carla Morrison is more than just a girl with a guitar. Her yearning vocals tug at the heartstrings with lyrics about love and longing and a sound that straddles the line between country and ranchera without conforming to either style. The Mexican singer came on the scene as the front-woman of the Phoenix-based band Babaluca a few years ago before going solo in 2009.
Saturday, July 2 India – International Voices Project This one night concert reading highlights the voices of Indian writers, and provides audiences the opportunity to experience rarely seen plays and playwrights from India.
