Started in 1995, The LUNCH Holiday Show is an annual favorite.  This event is a a full stage play which mixes bits of our pop culture with the traditions of the Holidays.  We've done shows which parody  the X-files, The Wizard of Oz,  reality TV, Super-Heroes, Gilligan's Island,  Harry Potter,  Star Wars, 
Indiana Jones,  Dilbert, Hunger Games, and much more.   All of our shows are original, written and directed by Bill Pere.  These family events have involved hundreds of kids and adults, and benefit many local social service agencies.
