On top of terrorists, IEDs, hostile populations and hellish conditions, female soldiers in the U.S. military face another enemy -- sexism -- that must be battled at the front and at home, on-duty and off. Worse, it is an enemy that is often fought alone, without help or even acknowledgement of colleagues and superiors. Lonely Soldiers: Women at War in Iraq is a play that explores the struggles, both visible and invisible, facing today's female soldiers. Adapted from Helen Benedict's book The Lonely Soldier: The Private War of Women Serving in Iraq, the play features monologues and scenes taken directly from Benedict's interviews with real soldiers. Directed by Austene Van, Lonely Soldiers stars seven actresses playing specific soldiers who served during the early years of the Iraq War. Learn More

GREAT show!!! Good energy, good acting, GREAT voices. Not too long, not too short. I've been to the Surf Ball Room in Clear Lake, IA many times so this story is near and dear to my heart although I was only 2 when Buddy Holly died.

Buddy - The Buddy Holly Story
Written by Alan Janes
Original London production directed by Rob Bettinson
Directed by Ron Peluso

Part biography, part rock ‘n’ roll concert, this is the musical retelling of the life and times of Buddy Holly from his meteoric rise to stardom to the unforgettable concert in Clear Lake, Iowa. Extremely talented, passionate, and impulsive, Buddy crossed racial barriers with his music and left an indelible legacy in just four short years. Musical hits include: “Peggy Sue,” “Oh Boy!” “Rave On,” and “That’ll Be the Day.”
