Binky Rudich, his friend Viv, and his almost human sheep Bob, tinker with a two-speed clock with the idea that, as Binky says, "Time on Earth moves at the same speed all the time, but there is another speed, a slower speed, and if we could find it, everything would stand still on Earth and we would spin off." And they do! To Crestview, Fourth World in the Goolagong System, ruled by George Topax and guarded by the Great Space Pandas.

Pulitzer-prize winning playwright, David Mamet, pens this colorful children’s sci-fi fantasy full of vibrant characters and hilarious dialogue perfectly suited to our second annual Theater for Young Performers production.

Tickets range from $12-$22. Please note: As a courtesy to our patrons, children under the age of 2 will not be admitted.

2017 marks our 3rd annual race!

Just1MoreStep is a FUN 10K run, 5K run/walk and a kids run! Filled with live entertainment and a beautiful wooded course. The event is USTF sanctioned and chip timed for accurate race results.

  • 5k run starts at 9:30

Proceeds for the race go to help the people of Haiti through World Wide Village. Our first two years all of the proceeds went to a specific project called City on a Hill, that is creating sustainable communities in Haiti. This year we are planning to split the proceeds between City on a Hill and for the cost of building a home for abandoned children. Check out our website for more information on these two amazing projects.

Also new in 2017, everyone who registers for the race will receive $100 of the cost of a mission trip to Haiti, through World Wide Village. You can go down to Haiti to see and help with the great work being done with the money raised from our races. Plus, you can also meet the amazing abandoned children who will get a new home.
