Accomplice, the comedy-thriller now at STAGEStheatre, comes from the pen of Rupert Holmes, the writer behind the Tony-winning mysteries Drood and Curtains (not to mention the soft rock standard "Escape" ("The Piña Colada Song")). With murder mysteries, it's common practice to say that "things are not what they seem," but Accomplice takes subterfuge to the extreme, offering a play-within-a-play that is deviously plotted and full of revelations. What starts out as a seemingly conventional thriller turns out to be much more complicated than simple murder. Awarded an Edgar -- the Oscar of crime literature -- by the Mystery Writers of America, Accomplice will charm and entertain, even as it keeps you rapt with excitement. David Campos directs.

The music and dance numbers were very impressive -- every inch of the stage was utilized by the cast of ten with enthusiasm and skill.
Vanguard students did a great job!
Suggest the production be trimmed and targeted to grades 5 - 8 - those...continued
Americans All — A musical revue that cleverly examines and celebrates American core values
Music and Lyrics by Honorable James P. Gray
Arranged by Susan Boettger
Directed by Vanda Eggington
Vanguard University’s highly acclaimed and award-winning department of theatre arts presents the World Premiere of Americans All, a clever and inspiring original musical revue written by local retired Orange County Superior Court Judge James Gray. Americans All is presented in the Lyceum Theatre on the Vanguard University campus.
The show’s director, Vanda Eggington, describes the show, “It’s always such a great thrill to present original material for the first time. The show has not been done before, so no one has any preconceived notions about what they are going to experience on stage. Actors, musicians and audience alike—and even the show’s author—are all going to take this wild ride together into the magic of musical theatre. This show could probably be best described as a blend of To Sir, With Love because the teacher inspires the students; The Breakfast Club because the students inspire each other; and Glee because they are constantly breaking out in song.”
