What's Your Wish? 

book, music & lyrics by Thicket & Thistle

What’s Your Wish? is an original comedic folk musical that carves a witty and poignant story of two best friends, Nicholas and Brian, who get sucked into a magical book and must find a way to make it out alive. On their journey, they encounter a friendly trash rat, a rebellious young fairy, and a seductive, power-hungry enchantress. Through their misadventures, the boys come face to face with issues of integrity, the power of friendship, and the true meaning of sacrifice.

Thicket & Thistle is a collaborative group of theatre artists and actor/musicians devoted to creating new musicals that meld a passion for honest, heart-filled storytelling and the spirit of improvisational comedy with a love for folk music. Working within the joyful confines of a DIY, suitcase-theatre aesthetic, Thicket & Thistle strives to surprise and delight, engage and enlighten. The members of Thicket & Thistle include: Kyle Acheson, Sam De Roest, Nyssa Duchow, Jonathan Eric Foster, Sarah George, Corley Pillsbury, and Joshua Stenseth.

 

We Have Apples

book, music & lyrics by Rachel Griffin and Aron Accurso’

We Have Apples follows Jane, a quirky nineteen-year-old, who is determined to overcome her mental illness and become a successful writer. Paralyzed by the intensity of Depression, Jane’s illness personified, Jane is forced to check into a psychiatric facility. Frustrated by the childish therapy groups at the facility, Jane and her fellow patients start their own writing group. When a preventable tragedy occurs due to inadequate care, Jane and the patients expose the hospital online and end up turning things upside down both inside and out of the ward.

 

Kragtar: An American Monster Musical

book by Sam French & Kyle Wilson
music & lyrics by Kyle Wilson 

America is being ravaged by a Godzilla-esque beast, Congress has their heads up each others' asses, and it's up to two gay scientists to save the world from the monsters - the ones from the deep and the ones in DC. A darkly comedic satire and love story, KRAGTAR tackles a divided country the near-apocalypse with musical theater.
