Peggy Sue Blazer and Richie White could not be more cranked! They have made it as finalists in the Tri City Bandstand dance off finals! This year, they travel from their small town of Pleasantville to compete in Capital City against the best of the best. Peggy is sure that this is the year they take home first place!

To make things even more the bee's knees, Jerry Lee Presley will be one of the judges! Jerry Lee is ONLY the hottest rising star on the local music circuit and is dreamy beyond belief!

However, not all goes as planned this year during the televised contest at Flo's Diner as one attendee is "taken off the payroll." Are the greasers behind this? Will someone be caught for this grody crime or will the guilty be able to burn rubber before they are discovered?

Join us to help solve the crime!

A Double Wide Murder

The Rusty Acre Trailer Park is the oldest trailer park in Applenocker, FL. 

While cookie cutter suburban developments have popped up all around Rusty Acres in the past 10 years with uppity yanks flooding the newly built neighborhoods from New York and Massachusetts, Rusty Acres has stood strong as the mecca to a redneck way of life that it has always been. However, “progress” may be catching up with the residents at Rusty Acres and at this year’s Trailer Owner’s Association Annual Meeting and Pot Luck Supper their simple way of life is fixin’ to come crashing down. 

One attendee learns that they may just be too big for their own britches and gets themselves dead!

**Please note that this show is intended for an adult audience. Children under 16 are not recommended.

Peace, Love and Murder

Peace, Love and Munchies MURDER!

It is 1968, just a year after the Summer of Love. The conflict in Vietnam is still raging, psychedelic drugs are everywhere, and bathing is optional. It is truly a righteous time on the scene.

Welcome to Unity Acres, the grooviest hippy commune in universe man. Founded by Ethan Frome, who now goes by the sole moniker of “Enliman,” as a place of mind opening enlightenment, free love and equality. Tonight, Unity Acres is welcoming it’s newest members and providing them an orientation to life at the commune. This orientation and initiation ceremony known as “Peace, Love and Munchies” is a dinner to teach the enlightened ways of the commune and clear new members’ minds of “the veil of materiality and self delusion that screens us all from the true reality of oneness,” their Maya.

Through a series of hip exercises meant to reprogram the mind, along with a healthy dose of “herbal remedies” including smoking dried rose pedals and of course dinner new recruits turn away from their square ways and come to understand that their lives outside the commune have been nothing but selling out to the man.

However, on this transcendental evening, peace and love may not really be on the menu as one member of the commune meets an untimely death.

MURDER at the Disco

Fish Camp on Lake Eustis

Tavares, FL

Wednesday, September 28, 2022

 6:30 pm 


Studio 68 is the hottest Disco club in Capital City. The list to get in on a Friday night is a who’s who of the movers and shakers of the 70s disco culture. Politicians and celebrities mingle with the lucky few “regular folks” who can convince security that they have what it takes to show themselves as off the hook on the dance floor. 

 Since the Capital City press is always on the scene looking for the hottest gossip the Club has a reputation to protect and ONLY allows in the top Casanovas and brick houses.  Every groovy cat and hot babe wants to be seen on Studio 68’s rotating dance floor.

Tonight as club owner Gigi Hughes celebrates her 30th birthday with the upper crust and extra exclusive guest list, one guest learns that all that glitters isn’t gold and finds themselves feeling far out and freaky deaky.  



About Us

Something New Studio is located in Lake County, FL. A long time dream of owner Jim Quinlan who wants to bring experiences in all arts to those who may not have tried them otherwise.

The business formed in January 2020 and signed a lease for an a absolutely perfect space in the historic district of downtown Eustis in February 2020. We quickly began build out of our theatre and dance space in order to use it to support many arts related program and give the community an opportunity to learn AND teach Something New. The excitement built quickly as we formed partnership with The Historic State Theatre, Showtime USA and other local creatives. We looked forward to sharing everyone’s talents with a projected opening date of April 1st!

Enter a global pandemic... Just weeks before our Studio was set to open with a calendar of classes Covid-19 was sprung on the nation and our plan to bring groups of people together for the love of the arts needed to be put on hold.

As restrictions eased and we learned how to be safe in this new world we found new and exciting ways to bring the arts to our community.  From our many different introductory classes and programs to our troupe of professional actors we bring the arts alive!
