ALICE @ WONDERLAND What would happen if a 21st century Alice collided with Lewis Carroll’s legendary Wonderland? This modern retelling of the classic children’s story has all of the characters you know and love, including the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and the Queen of Hearts. The story is laid out in traditional style, except that Alice is distinctly contemporary, complete with cell phone in hand. Full of references to text messaging and social media, the play imagines a present-day Alice encountering the Wonderland so many of us treasure. A sharply told, crisply paced ride, this quality adaptation has been praised for its humor, modern style and appeal to both children and adults. This session is full.

ZOMBIE NIGHT! This doo-wopping musical pays great tribute to classic horror flicks like “Night of the Living Dead,” “The Return of the Living Dead” and “Cemetery High.” Howie, Louise, Gary and Phoebe are in charge of “Zombie Night,” the annual senior class party. They locate an abandoned farmhouse by an old graveyard, once occupied by the creepy, crawly Dr. Thanatos, who tried to re-animate the dead (gulp!). Vivian and Anne show up, determined to destroy the party. (They’re sore losers who wanted a sock hop instead.) Enter a grim farmer who warns the kids that it’s dangerous to stay. We soon discover why — zombies! While the decorations go up, the zombies shuffle from the graveyard. Cosmic cannibals! It’s zombies versus students! The spoof races to a spine-chilling and hilarious finale.

TOM SAWYER: AN AMERICAN MUSICAL is a musical comedy based on the novel by Mark Twain. Set in 1840 in St. Petersburg, Missouri, a bustling town on the banks of the Mississippi River, it is the story of a mischievous fourteen-year-old boy growing up in the heartland of America. Tom matches wits with his stern Aunt Polly, falls in love with the beautiful, feisty Becky Thatcher, and goes on the adventure of his life with Becky and his best friend Huckleberry Finn. Along the way he tricks his friends into whitewashing a fence for him and narrowly escapes the clutches of a murderous villain. Sidney, Tom’s half-brother and insufferable goody-goody who dislikes Tom, does everything he can to get Tom into trouble. The greatest Tom Sawyer exploits are brought to life on the stage.

ROCKIN’ ROBIN HOOD Ages 7–11
PRESS START!Ages 12+

ROCKIN’ ROBIN HOOD Nottingham rocks in this exciting take on the legend of Robin Hood. Told as an origin story, we begin in a happier time when Nottingham is wealthy and prosperous. A young orphan Robin and his twin sister Hazel arrive with big hopes to open an archery shop, but immediately run into trouble. King Richard has recently left for the Crusades, so the rotten Sheriff of Nottingham and his land-owning fiancé, Lady Blackwood, seize the opportunity to tax the town blind. Robin quickly makes an enemy of the sheriff and eventually becomes a wanted man… an outlaw! By the time he escapes to Sherwood Forest, he’s met all his legendary friends — Friar Tuck, Little John, Marian, and more — and brought the team together to help return what is stolen from the poor and eventually bring the evil sheriff down. Loaded with action, chase scenes, prison breaks, and an archery tournament, you’ll especially love the awesome score by the award-winning Rockwell and Bogart; it blends medieval ditties into upbeat rhythms and tempos, perfectly capturing the timeless spirit of our outlaw hero!

PRESS START! transports us inside the bright, pixelated world of video games! When the famous characters we know and love run out of lives, they decide to put on a musical fundraiser that will help them raise gold rings and play on. Through hilarious and heartfelt musical numbers we see the heroes, villains and sidekicks like we’ve never seen them before. But when things go terribly awry, it’s the quiet sidekick Little Mushroom who must find the hero within to help save the day! Themes: Acceptance, Teamwork, Diversity, Overcoming Obstacles
