Adapted from R. L. Stine’s Phantom of the Auditorium, this weird and wacky musical is sure to bring a tickle and a chill.

Mother Goose Christmas
December 1 – 17, 2017

It is nearly Christmas time in the land of nursery rhymes, and all of Mother Goose’s little friends are doing their very best to be good.

The Snowy Day and Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats
February 2 – 18, 2018

What is more delightful than waking to find the world covered with fresh snow? What is more awesome than bundling up and trundling out into that white serenity to feel the crisp crunch-crunch-crunch underfoot and the brand-new-ness of creation all around? Come join little Peter as he explores these delights and many more in The Snowy Day and Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats.

Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook**
March 9 – 25, 2018

What a day for Junie B. Jones. Someone took her gorgeous new furry fur mittens, and they didn’t put them in the lost and found box! But then she found the coolest new pen of many colors. Finders keepers, losers weepers! Right? But wait. Does that mean finders keepers on her mittens too? And on top of all that, there’s a dreamy new boy—let’s call him Handsome Warren—in kindergarten. Can you “finder keeper” a boyfriend? Find out in this uproarious comedy by Allison Gregory based on the book series by Barbara Park.

Stone Soup
April 27 – May 13, 2018

One day, a lovable wanderer came upon a little house at the end of a long road. “Hello inside,” he called. “Is anyone home? I’m a hungry traveler who wants food to feed his tummy.” A little woman peeked out and smiled. Then she opened her door. Delighted, the traveler stepped inside to discover a treasure even more precious than a pot of delicious soup: he found a friend. Earnest charm, playful imagination, and heart-warming music are the key ingredients in this fresh, nourishing new play.
