2016 - 2017 Season - Upcoming Shows

Jack and the Beanstalk - March 4 through March 26, 2017

School Matinees: March 9, 2017; 9:15am and noon

Fee. Fi. Fo. Fum. We smell another wonderful fairytale brought to life! Jack And The Beanstalk is a splendid spin on the classic tale. Needing money to pay the yearly taxes, Jack's mother instructs him to sell their cow. True to form, Jack winds up with a bag full of magic beans in exchange for the cow. The next morning, after planting them, Jack awakens to find a giant beanstalk, at the top of which lives one very scientifically minded Giant who has invented a plucky Golden Harp and a tap-dancing Golden Goose. Wackiness ensues as Jack tries to escape the magical kingdom!

James and the Giant Peach - April 29 through May 21, 2017

School Matinees: May 11, 2017; 9:15am and noon

When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a tremendous peach... and launches a journey of enormous proportions. Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach – among human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities – but, after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements. Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family. Featuring a wickedly tuneful score and a witty and charming book, this adventurous musical about courage and self-discovery is destined to be a classic.

Summer 2017 - Upcoming Shows

Bye Bye Birdie - July 21 through July 30, 2017

When the draft selects rock star Conrad Birdie, his fans are devastated, but none more than struggling songwriter Albert Peterson, whose song Birdie was just about to record. Albert's longtime girlfriend, Rosie, pushes Albert to write a new tune that Birdie will perform on television to a fan selected in a contest. The scheme works, with young Ohio teenager Kim McAfee declared the winner, but no one counted on Kim's boyfriend.
