“You never know what you’ll find until you look.” In Sheltered, a new musical, three college students stumble upon a community of homeless persons taking refuge from winter in an abandoned Catholic church. When the community is discovered and the threat of eviction looms these three students and those displaced try to resolve the question, “am I my brother’s keeper?”

What happens when a Hollywood film crew invades a small rural Irish village and casts locals as extras? A comedy ensues with a clash of cultures made even more theatrical as two actors play 15 roles in this fast-paced acting challenge.  As is often the case, the behind the scenes drama is where the real action plays out and the audience gets a wild ride.

There's nothing unusual about an out-of-work actor lounging on his sofa, waiting for his next gig, and occasionally driving into town for supplies, except when that actor is Trevor, a 200 lb. chimpanzee! Based on a true story, this witty and heartfelt comedy manages to delve into important questions about relationships and our seemingly unlimited capacity to lie to ourselves.
