In the late summer of 1892, Lizzie Borden was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an axe. Lizzie: The Musical delves into the mysterious mind of Lizzie Borden and speculates on the motivations she may have had: loss of inheritance, history of sexual abuse, overwhelming oppression, madness. Four women create a riveting punk rock score in a concert setting to tell the story of why Lizzie Borden picked up an axe. All is not forgiven. Lizzie: The Musical is an unforgettable, hard rocking depiction of an extreme character from American lore.

One fateful night, a thunderstorm and a flat-tire force Brad Majors and Janet Weiss to seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank ’N’ Furter, an alien, transvestite scientist with a manic genius and insatiable libido. Brad, Janet, and Frank’ N’ Furter’s followers get swept up in the scientist’s latest experiment, one that will make Brad and Janet question everything they know about themselves! A loving rock homage to B rated sci-fi and horror films, The Rocky Horror Show is a brutal but sensual, hilarious journey into the dark places of human desire. GTF are bringing back their wildly popular rendition of this beloved cult classic!

Be seduced into a life of sin! REEFER MADNESS is an over-the-top satire about the perils of the “leafy green assassin.” Meet Jimmy, an upstanding, All-American boy and his sweetheart, Mary Lane. When Jimmy is tricked into taking his first puff of reefer, his life quickly spirals downward- gasp! Join us for this highly stylized, irreverent political critique which parodies the classic 1930s instructional film of the same title. In classic GTF form, this musical is full of wit, camp, mayhem, and, you got it… madness!
