IT’S THE MOST _____ TIME OF THE YEAR: Oil on Canvas
It’s Thanksgiving Eve, and Jean and Doug couldn’t be more excited about the holiday season. The halls are decked, the trees are up, and the kids, Rosemary and Bing, will be arriving any minute. Son-in-law Mike and new grandbaby Suzie round out the family gathering, and loving tolerance and charity abounds. But Jean has arranged a surprise for them all that makes them question her sanity, and as Thanksgiving Day dawns, the family must decide: How far will they go to make Jean’s ultimate Christmas wish come true?

Almond farmer Jerry wants to change the negative public perception of his nuts. Alma and Felix are there to report on it. Tressa and Effie want to claim the ranch for themselves, since farm wife Adelaide defaulted on the mortgage. Officers Kemp and Ren are there just to keep the peace. When Alma dies of a nut allergy and returns as a ghost, it sets off a series of comically fatal accidents. As each character expires and the farmhouse slowly fills with spirits, cameraman and reluctant medium Felix must manage the living and the dead, while maintaining both his life and sanity.

The scientist. The monster. The tale of a creation suffering at the hands of his maker. It’s a story we all know – but what if the creation takes on a life of its own? What if the relationship between them was more complicated than we ever realized, and what if, by the act of making the monster, the scientist was changed as well?

A Collaboration with Pagans & Androids

Shimmera and the Three Magi is a rock opera dreamed up by local performance group Pagans & Androids, and will feature a fascinating juxtaposition of woodsy whimsy and the magic of digitization. Based on the myth of the three magi, Shimmera is a birthing of three different, seemingly oppositional states, asking us whether we can live as three creatures simultaneously.
