Part psychological thriller, part morality play by Lee Blessing
Poignant and provocative exploration of the consequences of consuming violence.
Married journalists Dan and Iris Henniman have set up camp in a dingy motel in the middle of nowhere to interview infamous serial killer William Reach for his official biography. His last appeal has been denied … now all that’s left is hearing his skin-crawling stories: the tell-all gory details of his killing 19 girls. As he weaves his tales of debauchery, the couple gets drawn further into a downward spiral that tests their working and personal relationship.
If this were a movie, we think it might be rated “R” for adult themes and language.

Fun and educational classics adapted by Rich Smith
Produced in partnership with Racine Symphony Orchestra.
Classic fables and classic music combine for an educational, fun show - with morals and more. Take some well-known stories, add a touch of OOHPs humor, back it up with live musicians, and you have a children’s theatre event that adults will enjoy as well.
If this were a movie, we think it might be rated “G for all ages.

All New Sketch Comedies by OOHP
Short, unrelated original comedies – plus some of the area’s finest musicians.
It’s back! OOHPs’ sketches deliver lots of silliness and satire. By “original,” we mean all of these sketches will be written by Over Our Head Players. By “sketches,” we mean short pieces with minimal technical elements. And by “comedies,” we mean funny! Once again, we’ll feature live music from some top musicians. From the folks who pen the popular Snowdance hijinks, Theatre/Schmeatre is sure to sell out.
These pieces are not yet rated. We haven’t seen them, either!
November 21, 22, 23; November 28, 29, 30; December 5, 6, 7
A Comedy of Manners without the Manners by Yasmina Reza
Thrill ride into the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood.
Grownups behaving badly: when Alan and Annette’s son hits Michael and Veronica’s son with a stick, the two couples meet to discuss the problem over appetizers. Initially, diplomacy prevails but as the evening progresses (and rum flows...), the gloves come off in a comically explosive, side-splitting free-for-all that will leave the couples with more than just their progressive principles in tatters. A Tony-winner by the author of ART.
If this were a movie, we think it would be rated “PG-13” for adult language.
2015: February 6, 7, 8; Feb. 12, 13, 14, 15; Feb. 19, 20, 21, 22; Feb. 26, 27, 28, March 1; March 5, 6, 7, 8
2015 Snowdance® 10 Minute Comedy Festival
11th Anniversary Festival! - Competition of Original Comedies - The hit playwriting competition draws entries from around the globe. Judges choose the best to produce. Then, in the ultimate interactive experience, the audience votes on who should win the cash prize. It’s original comedy plus OOHPs’ signature hijinks between plays. Utah has Sundance; Racine has Snowdance! A great reason for season tickets – this popular event sells out.
These plays are not yet rated; they are not yet written!
April 17, 18, 19; 24, 25, 26; May 1, 2, 3
Satirical comedy by Matthew Wilka and Mark Setlock
Glitz. Glamour. Kidnapping. Money. Really, really small false teeth.
Take the over-the-top world of children’s beauty pageants and crank it up a notch: two flamboyant contest coaches lure parents with their seminar, “Is My Child a Pageant Queen, and If Not, Can I Make Her One?” Pinky will do anything to make sure her little angel becomes Supreme Queen. When a newcomer to the pageant circuit starts grabbing all the glory, Pinky uses some unorthodox methods in order to ensure her darling, Chevrolet, is victorious.
If this were a movie, we think it would be rated "PG."
