Wild Women/Wild West . . . or How the West Was Fun. An original vignette written and performed by Sandra Foster Lovas and Laura Foster Ikel (LAF). They present three misunderstood frontier femmes, defying social norms to chase eccentric goals. One shot her way to fame, amazing all; one danced her way to fame, seducing all; one built her way to fame, determined not to complete her topsy-turvy home. All are sparkling examples of How the West Was Fun!

Texas Book of Beasts—Year of the Gar, by Jeff Irvin. Series of extremely short skits dealing with daddy longlegs, dioramas, bats, javelinas, ocelots, crickets, frogs, toads, quail, rattlesnakes, ostriches, warts, and, of course, a gar.

An Evening With Amelia Young, by Ammon Taylor. Amelia Young, pianist, socialite, and 25th wife of the Mormon prophet Brigham Young, presents an evening of music theory, Mormon theology, and general entertainment. Ann Eliza Young, wife no. 19, will also make a brief appearance.

Instructions for a Séance, written and performed by Katie Bender. Part DIY séance, part exploration of ambition and motherhood, Instructions for a Séance is one woman's imperfect attempt to contact Houdini from the beyond.
