- Leyla Gentil will be serving as this show’s director, helping to build the world of a familiar Green Buffalo character. Those who attended October 2019’s Spooky One-Act Play Festival will notice Michael Burke as he reprises his role as “Mike” in “When the Skeletons in Our Closets Choke on Candy Corn.” The show will also feature GBP Co-Founder and Producer, Madison Sedlor, as well as Madeline Allard and Amanda Vink.

WHEN THE SKELETONS IN OUR CLOSETS CHOKE ON CANDY CORN: Two best friends flee a Halloween house party in order to bury candy corn in the backyard. For Sam, burying the candy corn represents a burial of nostalgia. For Mike, he just wants to get laid, but to do that, he must stop the candy corn funeral at all costs.
WHO'S AFRAID OF DONALD TRUMP?: Mike's childhood sock monkey may or may not be possessed by the ghost of his Trump-supporting, blue-collar father... who also likes getting involved in Mike s relationship with Liz, his girlfriend. Liz has had enough.
