Something Wicked Looks for Love

An Improv Show that’s Ready to Mingle


The 39 Steps

Thu, 01/22/2015 - 8:00pm - 10:30pm

Following its smash-hit holiday musical, The Stardust Christmas Commotion, Harlequin Productions is set to raise the curtain on the second show of its 2015 Season. The 39 Steps is a comically uproarious stage version of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1935 film thriller, featuring four actors playing 139 characters.

Richard Hannay is a bored Londoner until he tries to help a counter-espionage agent prevent an organization of spies from stealing top secret information. But when the agent is killed, Hannay stands accused of the murder and finds himself on the run with a beautiful stranger who is less than eager to help save him and thwart the spy ring. The (many) characters romp through a dizzying array of locations, train rides, chase scenes, and prat falls in this charmingly audacious homage to classic suspense cinema.

     WHAT:       The 39 Steps

     WHEN:       January 22nd–February 14th 2015; Thursdays–Saturdays at 8:00pm, Sundays at 2:00pm

The Head! That Wouldn't Die!

On a beautiful day in 1963, the brilliant intern Dr Bill Cortner and his fiance Jan are involved in an auto accident , in which Jan is decapitated. Using his new experimental serum, Bill manages to keep Jan alive. In a race against the clock Bill begins a search for the perfect body for his darling Jan.

As Bill's quest takes a dark turn, so do things in the lab. Jan is awake and her senses are heightened by the serum that is keeping her alive. Wishing for death's release, Jan forges alliances with Dr. Cortner's less successful experiments.

In a new adaptation by the TAO Collective of the classic B movie The Brain That Wouldn't DIE, this all original musical will tickle your funny bone, get your toes tapping and maybe give you a chill or two in the process.

Clybourne Park

Thu, 10/02/2014 - 8:00pm - 10:30pm

Clybourne Park is an outrageous modern comedy that fearlessly, and hilariously, tackles some of the most challenging social issues of our time. Act One takes place in an all-white neighborhood in 1959 Chicago, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house 50 years later as a white family attempts to move into the now predominately African-American neighborhood, which is struggling to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. This Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play offers fascinating and original insights into issues surrounding race, political correctness, and what truly makes a community. Bruce Norris’ incredible script brilliantly balances humor and heartbreak to deliver a powerful and enlightening experience. “Vital, sharp-witted, and ferociously smart.” ~The New York Times

 WHO:             Harlequin Productions

WHAT:            Clybourne Park

WHEN:            October 2nd –25th; Thursdays-Saturdays at 8:00pm, Sunday matinees as 2:00pm

Something Wicked Goes Back to School

Wed, 09/03/2014 - 8:00pm - 10:00pm

It’s that time of year again– leaves are turning color and students everywhere are preparing for classes to start back up. But Something Wicked is here to eliminate those post-summer blues with a new improv show, Something Wicked Goes Back to School! Harlequin Productions’ celebrated group of improv comics presents a show about the joys (and tragedies) of going back to school. They’ve grabbed their letterman’s jackets, their pom-pom’s, and their prom dates, and all they need now is you and your suggestions!


Thu, 08/21/2014 (All day)

This startling new comedy shines its spotlight on the inhabitants of a tiny town whose insignificant and bumbling lives somehow manage to reflect and remind us of the vast wonder of life and the universe we all live in. Inspired by Thornton Wilder’s classic play, Our Town, it will challenge your convictions about birth, death, and everything in between.
