The production of Macbeth will conclude the 2014 spring theater season and will ring in the 2014 Professional Summer Mainstage season starting on June 21.

The next upcoming performances are as follows:

Tuna Does Vegas: Sin City will never be the same once it is invaded by the quirky residents of Tuna. The show is an affectionate comment on small-town life and hilarious satire of the same. Professional actors Mark Allen Woodard and Stephen Moore portray all the Tuna residents (both men and women), Vegas showgirls, Elvis impersonators and more! Tuna Does Vegas will be on stage from June 21-29.

The Kitchen Witches: When two “mature” cable-access cooking show hosts with a 30-year feud are cast as co-hosts of a new show, the hilarity is flung almost as often as the food. If the Martha Stewart Show and the Jerry Springer Show had a baby, it would be Kitchen Witches! Kitchen Witches will be on stage from July 5-13.

Desperate Affection: Desperate Affection tells the story of a couple that seems to have the perfect relationship. They laugh, they talk and share their thoughts. Suddenly, as a deadline approaches, one of the smiling faces becomes a sinister grim. Was it all a game or was their relationship created as a means to fulfill a dangerous plot? Desperate Affection will show from July 26 through Aug. 3.

Completely Hollywood (Abridged): Completely Hollywood (Abridged) gives guests the experience of 186 films in one 90-minute show. This show is a hilarious, rapid-fire summary of the greatest films in history from “Casablanca” to “The Matrix” and everything in between. This fast-paced farce will be on stage Aug. 23-Aug. 31.
