We’ll huff and we’ll puff, and we’ll sing our hearts out! Join us for a fractured, fully improvised one-act musical inspired by your favorite childhood stories. We ask you, the audience, to recap a movie or story from your youth that either defined or traumatized you. Then we bring it to life!

The gore, the grit, the love stories, and the life lessons.

Definitely Not Murders is the musical improv house team at American Stage in St. Petersburg, FL. We perform various styles and genres of spontaneous songs, dance numbers, and stories based on an audience suggestion. Some favorite titles from our previous shows include, YBOR STRIKES BACK, THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE BROOKLYN, HANSEL & GRETEL GO TO MACY’S, ROBOTS TAKE THE POLAR EXPRESS, CINDERELLA AIN’T NEED NO MAN, and FIGHT CLUB, THE MUSICAL!

We’re thrilled to be part of the Tampa International Fringe Festival! You can also check us out on 3rd Saturdays at Pinellas Ale Works, and last Thursdays at Hideaway Cafe. More details at AmericanStage.org/improv.

CHOCOLATE CASI AMARGO AT 2019 TAMPA INTERNATIONAL FRINGE FESTIVAL. Delicious sexy hot chocolate almost bitter will be served MAY 2019 in YBOR CITY.

Elena Goldfeder and Ruben Gomez from Rochester NY will perform in the 2019 TAMPA INTERNATIONAL Fringe Festival (MAY 3-11). Candide Carrasco’s new play, CHOCOLATE CASI AMARGO (CHOCOLATE ALMOST BITTER), is a bittersweet, hysterical romp through homophobia and conservatism in the Latino community. After an evening out with “good” friends, an older Cuban couple confronts their past, their present, the boredom of everyday life, the decline of aging and – most of all – their only child’s gay lifestyle. In both English and Spanish, this play is suitable for mature audiences.

PACO: So from now on all the gay kids in the universe are your kids?

ISABEL: Sí, that is the way it is, and it is going to be, they are all my kids as long that there are people who laugh at them, and throw stone, and kill them, there are too many mothers of gay kids who checked out ,we are needed, las que se quedan y luchan.

As Hitler rose to power he drew into his movement young men known as Hitler Youth who were dedicated to supporting the goals of Hitler and following his every command. Some of these teenagers volunteered to join while others were forced into membership, but once in, they had to declare their loyalty to all of Hitler’s plans, including his goal to rid Germany of undesirable people in order to create a master race free of persons with mental or physical disabilities or members of ethnic groups considered inferior to the pure Aryan race. Viktor, forced to join the Hitler Youth, faces a terrible dilemma because his own twin sister is housed in an asylum for the mentally disabled and is marked for death. Viktor not only fears what might become of his sister, but knows that he too will be doomed because of his genetic relationship. In his efforts to keep this secret from other vicious Hitler Youths, Viktor struggles to be true to himself and defy what he sees as a wave of evil that is sweeping his country.

N.Y. Sewer Gator

Sat May 4 12pm, Sun May 5 1:30pm,

Sat May 11 12pm

ThinkTankTYA, your friendly neighborhood family theatre company, is excited to bring you “N.Y.Sewer Gator”! Join us under all the hustle and bustle of New York City and enter a hidden world where gators make their home. Years have gone by and the people of the surface world have all forgotten the reptiles who live beneath them. That’s just as well, the gators wouldn’t have it any other way. After all this time, they have built their own way of life. They don’t need anything from up above and no one seems to mind. No one, that is, except for one.

One young alligator dreams of what life is like above the sewers. Could there be something up there for him? His answer comes one day when a peculiar visitor makes there way down below. Together, the unlikely pair travel above, below, and anywhere else you can think in search of a place where they belong.

Based on a story loosely based on an official article that someone read once and a collective group of wild imaginations, we can surely say this is a story you’ve never heard before.
