Recorded in front of a studio audience at the Arlington Museum of Art - December 2005
Sam is the boss of the Biscotti family business, a shady organization in the city. Sam is dropped off at this nightclub where he believes his annual Christmas party is about to take place. He had left all the planning to Frankie, his son. Frankie is using the opportunity to get rid of his father and take over the family business. All the plans are suddenly ‘messed up’ when Amaretta, a disoriented old lady, wanders onto the scene and changes everyone’s lives forever.

Our Colonel Nickels play was a great success. By the time we did our last show in Irving, all the cues were being hit right - everyone was sounding good - and the energy was perfect.
It's going to be a little bit of time before we launch our next show:
Cliff Proton and the Planet of Luuuuv! (Bow Chicka Bow Wow).
The plan is to hold auditions (if we have open auditions) at the end of July.
The performance dates will be August 24th at the Arlington Museum of Art (which ought to be fully re-opened by then), August 25th at the Grapevine Library (they enjoyed having us last time, and we enjoyed performing there), August 26th at the ICT Studio in Irving, and maybe one more performance the following week. I have to figure out where.
The basic story is that Cliff is buried under in paperwork and decides that maybe it would be good to go on a simple date. He starts by asking Space Ranger Sarah out, but before he knows it, he gets more than he bargained for, and is trapped (T R A P P E D) on the Planet of Luuuuuv (Bow Chicka Bow Wow).

A comedy/adventure written by Richard Frohlich with Rodd Wayne and Rich Baker, the story is about the quintessential British explorer and adventurer known as Colonel Nickels, who in 1913 is commissioned by the London Zoo to search the jungles of South America for the very last ferocious, deadly and lonely brushcat. His mission is two-fold. To return with the brushcat and not get killed.
We hope to perform in Arlington, Grapevine and Irving. Details on specific time, date and admission ( if applicable) will be posted soon.

Cliff Proton, a space ranger of the future rockets into your imagination with his faithful robot and the amazing Doctor Heterodyne. In this episode, he's joined by space ranger Sarah as he battles galactic sized bureaucracy, daunting dodecatuplicate travel forms, and the brutal savagry of the "new and improved" Peace Corp in his attempt to escape red tape strong enough to choke a dozen black holes. Of course, if he can't, his fate and that of all his friends is doomed (again). This is the fifth Cliff Proton Adventure.
