A Christmas Carol - November 10 through December 2, 2018

School Matinees: November 29, 2018; 9:15am and noon

"A Christmas Carol" is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens's most well-known story. Ebenezer Scrooge is a prosperous curmudgeon who believes personal wealth is far more valuable than the happiness and comfort of others. With an infuriated "Bah! Humbug!" Scrooge summates his feelings of Christmas tidings and charitable giving, but he's forced to face his selfish ways when three ghosts on Christmas Eve lead him through his Past, Present and Future. Thanks to their guidance, Scrooge recognizes his faults and greets Christmas morning with a cheerful "Happy Christmas" before spending the day reconnecting and sharing love with those that mean the most to him.

For all families and ages!

Tom Sawyer - March 9 through March 31, 2019

School Matinees: March 14, 2019; 9:15am and noon

"The classic Mark Twain story jumps off the page and comes to life in this musical adaptation of America's favorite book. THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER is the irresistible story of a young boy growing up in the heartland of America.  Set in 1840 Missouri, it is the tale of young Tom Sawyer and the never ending mischief of which he so often finds himself a part of; whether it's matching wits with Aunt Polly, tricking his friends into white-washing a fence for him, or narrowly escaping the clutches of a murderous villain. Along with best friend Huckleberry Finn and love interest Becky Thatcher, the greatest Tom Sawyer exploits are plucked from the book and plopped on the stage.  Aside from having one of the most recognizable titles from literary history, this musical piece is a superb family-friendly show"

Auditions: Jan 14, 2019 & Jan 15, 2019
