Marijuana has just been legalized for use and production all across the United States, and one small town of Marietta, Ohio is about to become home to the nation's very first cannabis factory. Willy Wonka and the Weed Factory is an original, comedy musical about five "Golden Spliffin" winners who receive an invitation from a hemp enthusiast to come tour his factory and experience all that cannabis has to offer. Inspired by the beloved Roald Dahl classic, WWWF explores the history of weed's criminalization and its ties to social and racial injustice, as well as all the medicinal and environmental benefits that cannabis has to offer. It’s more than just a story about smoking weed, it’s a story of love, trust, and above all, acceptance of others. For Tickets and Information visit www.wellandproductions.com.

by Stephanie Alison Walker
Presented by Little Candle Productions

Preview Friday, August 25 @ 8pm. Opening Night Gala: Saturday, August 26 @ 8pm

One out of every 54 homes in America received a foreclosure notice in 2008. Award-winning playwright and author of Love in the Time of Foreclosure, Stephanie Alison Walker, takes audiences on a deeply personal journey through recent history as she shines a light on three out of the millions of stories of loss. A young couple faces eviction from the dream house they stretched to buy; an elderly widow falls prey to a reverse mortgage scheme, and a minister of the prosperity gospel must face the flock she’s led astray.American Home takes an unflinching look at the impossible choices people make when faced with losing everything, and, ultimately, celebrates the powerful resilience of community and the human spirit.
