On one level, “Comic Potential” is a satire of the TV industry.  It is set slightly in the future, when everything has changed except human nature. Actors in a popular soap opera have been replaced by “Actoids”— android performers.  During the taping of the show, one of the “Actoids” begins to show signs of creativity. Is it a fault in her programming or is she humanizing? A young writer begins to teach her comic timing and physical comedy. Can their budding relationship blossom into real love or is it doomed to melt down? On a deeper level, “Comic Potential” explores what makes us human and the nature of love. “Comic Potential” contains adult language and situations and is most suitable for those 17 and older.

About Seussical
Our story begins in the land of Nool, where we find Horton the Elephant, alone by the pool.  All of a sudden, a small speck floats on by.  Horton can't see a thing but hears a small cry.  Upon that small speck is the home of the Whos and one boy named JoJo who breaks all the rules.  "This speck is a World!" Horton proclaims.  But no one believes him, they all call him names.  Gertrude McFuzz follows behind without fail, in hopes he'll notice her and her one feathered tail.  The peak of our tale is when the Whos must be heard!  Their fate lies with JoJo and one brand new word.  This enchanting musical adventure will transport you to a world where "a person's a person, no matter how small' and most importantly, anything's possible.
