Overwhelmed and dealing with looming college applications, heartbreak and low-self esteem, the seniors of North Pond High enroll in a game of assassins as a chance to cut-loose and forget their daily stressors. This light-hearted family friendly show includes a wide array of characters, a brainy girl, a loner, a theatre kid, an athletic guy, a stressed out teacher and many more. Alliances will be forged, hearts will be broken, and teen angst will be had!  Who will come out on top?

I want to give a massive "Thank You!" to everyone who supported PARANOIA for its world premiere at the Harrisburg Fringe Festival! The first performance of our show would not have been possible without our incredible cast, our generous GoFundMe donors, the Fringe organizers, and our passionate audiences who turned up for TWO SOLD OUT SHOWS!

For updates on performances and the journey of the show, follow Clothespin Ensemble on Facebook and Instagram.

"The story is relatable, exploring social, academic, and emotional pressures of high school. The music is memorable, as are the voices performing it. The actors demonstrate wonderful versatility as they take on multiple characters. Having seen this performance, I cannot wait to someday see the entire musical!"

- Andrea Stephenson,
