The Golden Girls: The Lost Episodes, Vol 2

They’re baaaack!

“The Golden Girls: The Lost Episodes, Vol. 2” is an original parody of the beloved TV show. Volume 1 was the sold-out hit of our 2019 Parody Series.

These gender-bending Girls find themselves in situations never before seen on television – that’s why they’re lost episodes!

Written by David Cerda and originally performed by Hell In A Handbag Productions in Chicago, the show features all of the beloved sitcom characters, including the forthright Dorothy, the sweet airheaded Rose, the lusty Blanche and the sharp tongued Sophia.

In these “never before seen episodes,” they band together as the girls struggle with the senior dating scene in a Valentine-themed story, as well as a “very special” cross-over episode with “Murder She Wrote,” giving us the Jessica Fletcher/Dorothy Zbornak song-and-dance we never knew we needed.

The production also features “Guess That Girl!,” a Golden Girls trivia and games to help audiences fully embrace the Miami experience.

2 Shows nightly Friday & Saturday, 7:30 & 9

I just wanted to say that I had an absolute blast. The performances were stellar, and the show was so damn fun! Thank you to the cast and crew for all of their hard work! Oh and also, I loved the Guess That Girl game! What a fun interlude to the GG Lost Episodes universe!” David Lipschutz

Strong Language

The state of inter-racial relationships can be an emotionally charged conversation all over the world. Here in America it is no different.

Everywhere in our country we are seeking means of coexistence. As young people there are feelings, emotions and thoughts that we wish to express but sometimes struggle to find the words. We wrestle with despair, sadness, anger, frustration, bias, ambivalence, powerlessness and hope and action.

So, as artists we share with an audience those same feelings, emotions and thoughts through dance, theatre and poetry in hopes that we can incite conversation that lead to means, peaceful means, of coexistence. Join us in changing the conversation. Caution some of this conversation may include “Strong Language“.

Run time:  90 minutes with intermission

This “sharp x-ray of the embattled American psyche” (New York Times) is a “brilliantly observed piece of art” (Chicago Tribune). Pulitzer Finalist.

Vandals damage Mass Ave's Artful Piano

Vandals have struck a piece of unique and interactive public art which stands outside the District Theater in the 600 block of Mass Ave. The vandalism has left IndyFringe, which unveiled the “Artful Piano” in June, looking not only for experts to repair the piano but also the funds to underwrite the effort.
The Artful Piano has been nothing but a joy to thousands of people who have played, tinkered and wondered at its history since it was placed outside The District Theatre on June 8 for Pride Parade. Unfortunately the Piano was vandalized over Labor Day weekend.
Will you help us restore this delightful addition to the Mass Ave Cultural District? As for the Artful Piano, Lee Dykstra and volunteers have moved the heavy instrument into The District Theatre to keep it safe for now.
The board is looking for an expert to diagnose and repair the piano. Jennifer Pope Baker from the CICF Women’s Fund has offered to help fund repairs and connect the theater with the artist, Aaron Underwood.
