BAGELS! - Finalist Neil Simon Playwriting Contest
For years, Ronny Kaplan has worked by his Father Izzy's side, helping him to achieve his lifelong dream; to invent the first automated bagel-making machine. But when Ronny alone comes up with a better design, and wealthy Cousin Howard offers to invest in it over his Father's original effort, not only does it cause a big family rift, but Ronny discovers that with a not-so-kosher business partner, an upset wife, and some angry bagel bakers stirring up trouble, he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
Inspired by a truly monumental event in history - the invention of the first automated bagel-making machine in the 1960's. www.bagelsthemusical.com

A timeless coming of age story of one teenager with two names, trying to find her place amidst her parents' expectations. For more information on go to www.marymariemusical.com

Lyrics by CHANA WISE
EARTHBOUND is a musical drama set on the space station Miami, where generations of inhabitants have looked longingly at the blue planet beneath them, awaiting their chance to go home. Now only seven remain, and not all of them want to keep waiting.
"...Nobody writes a sweetly wistful, romatic ballad like the composer-lyricist team of Jonathan Price and Chana Wise."
--Bill Raden, LA Weekly
