Hazing the Amazing Food
Written by Drill Birds & Kill the Messenger
Cast:
Cheryl … Terri Skov
Dean McDermott  … Lea Wilkening
Ron … James Jeffers
Kate … Lynnae Dudley
Beth … Robin Sadavoy
Sam … Nastasja Palonka
The play opens with Cheryl’s excitement about new hire, Ron. The Dean seemed bored at Oakville University, and Ron’s presence in the cafeteria seemed just the thing to brighten her spirits. But not everyone was so excited. Kate, Beth, and Sam wanted Ron out. They knew just the way to do it, too. A food fight. As Ron and Kate squared off, Ron had flashbacks to the hazing he suffered in prison. Against his will, his formerly violent self was influencing the bloodlust of everyone as Cheryl and the Dean okayed the use of deadly force, and Kate, Beth and Sam, were looking to kill Ron. In the end, whether it was a zombie apocalypse at Oakville University, or everyone was locked up—it was the audience’s choice as the play ended in a dead tie. WINNERS OF THE PLAY: A TIE GAME 14-14!

Not everyone was so happy with Suzanne leaving, especially Darryl the Penguin who confessed his love to Suzanne, presenting her with the one thing that would speak to her heart—an egg. The Easter Bunny became frustrated and reached out to a friend who helped him abduct Suzanne. Darryl was left in ruins. His goal of marrying Suzanne and taking over the velcro factory was gone. But when all seemed lost a Snowwoman appeared, Frosty’s sister who came to life when her head was removed. In the end, despite abductions and the bitter cold, love came to Timmins.
