Breaking News! Aliens have landed in Hartford, Connecticut! Why are they here, what do they want, and just how much mayhem will the resulting 24-hour news coverage incite?

A wild, improv-driven adventure. With puppets!

March 21 – 30, 2024
The Nafe Katter Theatre
A doctor who has discovered a lifesaving cure must make an impossible decision. With only one lifesaving dose remaining and two people in need, whom should he save?  A scalpel-sharp satirical examination of the medical establishment, love and the value of art.  



Conceived by Rebecca Feldman
Book by Rachel Sheinkin
Music and Lyrics by William Finn

The Harriet S. Jorgensen Theatre

Cheer on 6 eclectic mid-pubescent bee contestants as they vie for the coveted county championship and struggle to avoid the soul-crushing ‘ding’ of the elimination bell. Winning isn’t everything and losing does not necessarily make you a loser. A hilarious and endearing Tony-Award-winning musical.

The character of Rory as played by Téa Guarino in A Hundred Words for Snow

"Téa Guarino... chisels her way through this icy expanse with grace and aplomb. The character of Rory seems frighteningly young to be having the adventures she has, except the play is largely a metaphor for coming-of-age transformations and revelations."
-Christopher ArnottHartford Courant  ( full review )

"Hannah Corbett’s Lighting and Dennis Dowding’s Sound Design provide nuance and subtlety to the play." 
"A Hundred Words for Snow, a striking production with a bravo performance by Tea Guarino."
-Stuart Brown, Stu on Broadway (full review )

“Guarino is delightful. she has an indelible charm that is captivating and sweet.”
-Tim LeininigerOne Man's Opinion, (full review )
