Storybook Reunion Murders

By Scott Haan

March 10-April 3 2022

Directed by Amber Ryan

The alumni of Aesop Academy, a school for nursery rhyme characters, are having a reunion.  Unfortunately, so are the alumni of Grimm High, their cross-town rivals...  and both gatherings have been scheduled for the same time and place!  Bitter enemies — like Peter and the Wolf, Toto and the Witch, and Jack and the cow he sold for magic beans — face off.  Old grudges are rekindled, and tensions run high.  The powder keg explodes when the Cat is killed (and not by curiosity!), followed by Piggy, whose melodramatic death scene causes someone to observe, “Sheesh!  What a ham!”  And in the middle of all this chaos, all Queen can say is “Another one bites the dust!”  There’s no end to the laughs as the two warring schools team up to solve the mystery...  or risk suffering the same fate!  The jokes and twists abound in this delightful romp that is great fun for kids and adults alike!

Stuart Little

By E.B White Adapted by Joseph Robinette

May 11-14 2022

Directed by Rachel Cummings

This is the endearing classic about a mouse named Stuart who is born into an ordinary New York family. All the charm, wisdom and joy of the E.B. White original are captured in this adaptation by Joseph Robinette, who also dramatized the highly acclaimed stage version of Charlotte's Web. The many adventures—both big and small—of Stuart Little are brought vividly to life in this story-theatre presentation. The acting ensemble plays many human and animal roles in a series of delightful scenes that make up the marvelous maneuverings of a mild-mannered mouse trying to survive in a "real people's world." This production is for actors ages 5-14

The Revolutionists (TEEN CAST)

By Lauren Gunderson

June 3-5 2022

Directed by Amber Ryan

Four beautiful, badass women lose their heads in this irreverent, girl-powered comedy set during the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror. Playwright Olympe de Gouges, assassin Charlotte Corday, former queen (and fan of ribbons) Marie Antoinette, and Haitian rebel Marianne Angelle hang out, murder Marat, and try to beat back the extremist insanity in 1793 Paris. This grand and dream-tweaked comedy is about violence and legacy, art and activism, feminism and terrorism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we actually go about changing the world. It’s a true story. Or total fiction. Or a play about a play. Or a raucous resurrection…that ends in a song and a scaffold.

This production is for actresses ages 15-19

The Giver is the only person who holds the memories of real pain and real joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life—and the hypocrisy of his utopian world. Through this astonishing and moving adaptation, discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny.
