Thank You — I Think!

Four short comedies laugh at love’s twists and surprises

Dolly Gets Her Shot

by Cary Pepper

In the  trendy “Dolly” restaurant, Jake (Rick Kopp) and Sam (Alan Kitty), self-important, rough-edged movie producers, argue over who has the best first act, who has the best ending for their film—and discover that their server, Ken (Philip Troyer), has all the answers.

Directed by Mark Woodland

Close Encounter

by Robin Pond

Jack (Jean-Paul Monde) makes an internet date through the “Close Encounters” website with unexpected results. Jill (Grace Vitale) is far different than he expected. She’s gorgeous but somehow out of this world—and she requires more than he wants to give. If he yields, can he live with the consequences?

Directed by Ren Pearson

Frisking Happy Gaylord

by Les Hunter

Charlie (David Meyersburg) tries to turn himself in to Lt. Friske (John Durkin), but his murder confession is so outlandish, his weapon so imaginary and his behavior so bizarre that Lt. Friske sends him away. Then a phone call from Molly (Samantha Centerbar) makes him question his decision.

Directed by Melliss Kenworthy

Slip and Fall

by Scott Mullen

Frank (Richard LeVene) and Mary (Jenny Aldrich Walker) are stunned to find Santa Claus (Don Walker) sprawled on their floor after falling. Things grow even stranger when Santa reveals his love for Mary and a job offer for Frank.
