This hilarious, rumpus, time-traveling fairytale will tickle your funny bones and stir your nether's like no other. Ms. Kitten's a little Judy Tenuta, a dirty-shot of Mae West, and a dash of Shirley Temple optimism. Show at 8pm Fridays and Saturdays, 2pm on Sundays. Tickets $15-20 at the box office, no one turned away due to lack of funds. Tickets also available at 18 and older.
