The Lottie & Bernice Show By L. Don Swartz
Directed by Colette Hartzler and assisted by Jared Bassette
Two old grumpy Polish ladies, Lottie and Bernice, become trapped in a television studio by a blizzard and end up taking over Western New York’s favorite morning show “Buffalo Yak.” Well, they do have some help. Two constantly bickering janitors, Hal and Sal, agree to handle the editorials while Candy Bickel, a wildly ambitious station intern who sees the blizzard as her break into media stardom, takes over the news desk. Neurotic program director Virgil Mooch tries to help, despite the fact that being on-camera makes him throw up. Lloyd Block, the station manager, struggles to hold everything together, while at the same time drowning his sorrows because of his deteriorating domestic situation. Things get much worse as the audience witnesses the funniest bad TV ever broadcast, highlighted by calls from listeners who are answered, “You are on the air with the Lottie & Bernice Show. What’s your beef?”

Southern Fried Funeral by Osborne & Eppler
Directed by Katye Long
Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces -- that is if they don't kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family -- Southern-style.
