Directed by Darri Kristin & David Campos
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. A dimension as vast as space, as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call “The Twilight Zone”.“That’s the signpost up ahead. Your next stop: The Twilight Zone”
Nick of Time
Season 2 Episode 7 Written by Richard Matheson
A pair of newlyweds stopping in a small town are trapped by their own superstition when playing a fortune telling machine in a local diner.
Don and Pat Carter are on their honeymoon when their car breaks down in the small town of Ridgeview, Ohio. They have a few hours to spare while their car is being repaired and spend time in the diner.

The Old Man in the Cave
Season 5 Episode 7 Written by Rod Serling
In a post-apocalyptic settlement in 1974, the inhabitants' survival is dependent on the advice of an unseen man living in a nearby cave. This dependence is tested when a band of soldiers descends on their town.
Ten years after an atomic apocalypse, a small group of survivors manage to eke out a very difficult existence. They've managed to survive in large part due to the advice they receive from an old man who lives in a cave outside of the town. Goldsmith acts as the intermediary and the old man's advice on things like crops or the safety of a batch of old canned goods are usually correct. When four soldiers led by Major French arrive in the town, the social order is upended with the townsfolk attacking the old man's cave but not really prepared for what they find inside.
The episode is a cautionary tale about humanity's greed and the danger of questioning one's faith in forces greater than oneself.

Moon Over Buffalo
August 11th – September 17th
Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm
Written by Ken Ludwig
Directed by Amanda DeMaio
Moon Over Buffalo is a raucous farce about a dysfunctional theater troupe performing in Buffalo, New York, in 1953. This backstage play by Ken Ludwig (author of Lend Me A Tenor) centers on fading stars George and Charlotte Hay, the diva lead actress, Charlotte Hay, is barely tolerant of her philandering semi-alcoholic husband, George, and mishaps and confusions arise for the company when presented the opportunity of famed film director Frank Capra attending a performance to possibly cast the two for a movie. Their temperamental daughter Rosalind splits time between fiancé Howard and ex-fiancé Paul, the company’s stage manager. Charlotte’s nearly-deaf mother, Ethel, and Richard, a would-be suitor for Charlotte, make their contributions to the mayhem as Eileen, a young actress in the company, reveals her pregnancy to all. The hopeful actors sprint through the tangle of confusion to produce a woefully misbegotten mixture of two different plays in their hoped-for presentation piece, and in the play’s climactic scene, manage to set everything right by still more series of coincidences and mishaps. Overall, Moon Over Buffalo is a fast-paced and energetic night of entertainment.
