Fences Down, No One Taking Tickets

Written by Nancy Andrews & Directed by Chris Tsocanos

6/30 - 7/2

We are thrilled to present the winner of our 17th Annual Full Length Play Competition. 

Fences Down, No One Taking Tickets is the touching story of plastic surgeon Lenny Miller. Disillusioned with the superficial world of face lifts, tummy tucks and boob jobs, Lenny escapes his mundane existence by attending to the task of dealing with his aging mother's farmhouse. While searching the attic, an old pair of his late brother's hippie sunglasses are discovered. Lenny's temporary escape from the doldrums of his everyday life take him further than he ever imagined. The sunglasses allow him to see the past... through his late brother's eyes. Suddenly the world of free love, Woodstock and the Vietnam War come to a sharp focus. What he learns, will change his life and his relationships forever.


Arts People Web Truman Show

Surfside Film Society "The Truman Show"

July 8th at 6:30 PM

Moderated by Alex Jackson$15 All Seats (Includes one softdrink and one snack)

Surfside Film Society gives voice to the impact cinema has on our diverse and ever-changing culture while celebrating those who create and those that view, the art form.

(Film) The Truman Show: He doesn't know it, but everything in Truman Burbank's (Jim Carrey) life is part of a massive TV set. Executive producer Christof (Ed Harris) orchestrates "The Truman Show," a live broadcast of Truman's every move captured by hidden cameras. Cristof tries to control Truman's mind, even removing his true love, Sylvia (Natascha McElhone), from the show and replacing her with Meryl (Laura Linney). As Truman gradually discovers the truth, however, he must decide whether to act on it.

Improv at its best when our premier improv troup, lovingly known as the Fibbers, once again takes the stage to create laughter and mirth out of thin air. You are in the drivers seat because its you, who directs the action.

"I laughed but there were truly touching moments as well."
