Sin City Opera teams up with Off-Strip Productions to perform two one-act operas at the Onyx Theatre. The two operas are thematically related, each having plots that center around telephones, and the two works will be completely interwoven, one in color and the other in black and white. Gian Carlo Menotti's comic The Telephone presents an exasperating situation that is especially resonant now that we all have mobile phones. Poor Ben has a very important question for Lucy, but his attempts to ask it are constantly interrupted by telephone calls. The dramatic tour de force The Human Voice (La Voix Humaine) by Francis Poulenc (performed in a new English translation) is a musical adaptation of Jean Cocteau's dramatic monologue of the same name.

As if immersed in a cartoon come to life, audiences enjoy a zany plot, outlandish characters and vividly-colored costumes and sets. Based on the iconic art of Josh “Shag” Agle, Shag With A Twist depicts a shag-edelic Tupperware party hosted by the quintessential retro couple Eldon and Othal and their over-the-top friends. Their party guests include Shimmy and Shake, Siamese twins joined at their fabulous hair, the debonair and egotistical Foot, the very seductive Kitty, the ultra-glamorous and ever mysterious Slinky and the creepy Coroner (because all coroners love Tupperware).
The party quickly takes a turn when someone ends up dead — screwed by a giant corkscrew — and it takes a bumbling police inspector, his pet monkey and a séance to solve the crime. Shag With A Twist serves up psychedelic fun that spills off the stage into a party for would-be hipsters and hep-cats.
