Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play
By Joe Landry; Directed by Pat Moriarity
Production Dates: March 10 – 13, 2011
Audition dates for this show have not been set.

Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense’s earlier films. With The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer’s ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring.  This spooky, exciting piece is a perfect evening’s entertainment!  Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com)

Once Upon a Mattress
Music by Mary Rodgers, lyrics by Marshall Barer, based on the book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer; Directed by Brystal Hopkins
Production Dates: Summer 2011 (Specific dates to be announced)
Audition dates for this show have not been set.

In this hilarious musical tweaking of the fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea”, Queen Aggravain has ruled that none may marry until her son, Prince Dauntless marries. However, she has managed to sabotage every princess that come along. When Sir Harry and Lady Larken learn that they are going to be parents, wed or not, he goes off to the swamps and brings back Princess Winnifred (“Fred” to her friends). The queen is horrified and immediately begins to scheme, but Winnifred, with some help from Sir Harry, the King, and the Jester, isn’t going to be quite so easy to get rid of. Produced by special arrangement with Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization.

A Tinkerman Christmas

Production Dates: December 2011
Audition dates for this show have not been set.

USP continue its tradition of producing original works by bringing back USPs founder, Beverly Graves, to direct one of her original works.
