Upcoming Productions

Next up, Unhapily Ever After, the Musical

About the play: A counselor has opened an office to see how various fairy tale characters are getting along.  He quickly discovers that nobody has lived ’happily ever after’ at all!  Sleeping Beauty will do nothing but nap, the Frog Prince refuses to give up his amphibian ways and nothing will pry Cinderella away from her beloved cinders.  The counselor sets about making everything right again, with equally disastrous results.  Added to the fractured fairy tale fun are five catchy musical numbers, cameo roles for a chorus of fairy tale characters and plenty of silliness for everybody involved!

 Ho Ho Ho, the Santa Claus Chronicles Our Most Recent Play 

Our Christmas play, Ho Ho Ho, the Santa Claus Chronicles will open Thursday, December 7, 2017 and runs through Sunday, December 10, 2017


About the play:

Ho ho ho!  Here’s a fast, lighthearted Christmas play that gives everyone their moment in the spotlight.  We join the host for a special live edition of “The Santa Claus Chronicles” at the North Pole just a few days before Christmas.  We start with a press conference where Saint Nick’s press secretary answers reporters’ questions about the jolly guy.  What’s his favorite food?  How does he know who’s naughty and nice?  We also meet the elves, Eeny, Meeny, Miney, and Sol, who take care of the reindeer, and we hear from the elves who work the gift suggestion hotline.  But the biggest mystery at the North Pole is where Mrs.Claus has disappeared to...just what is she up to?  Find out in a surprising ending that will leave a smile on every face.

 Three Stories for Halloween

You won't want to miss our three plays for Halloween, The Ghos Wore White, Forever Friends, and The Halloween Party. The production runs Thursday, October 26 - Sunday, October 29, 2017. Show times are 7:00 p.m. Thursday - Saturday and 3:00 p.m. Sunday.

About the plays. The Ghost Wore White:  The poor Conwell family! It was quite a shock to them to discover when they moved into their new home that it was already inhabited by a ghost! But Jennie Conwell, fourteen and vibrant, knew what to do about the vision in white that floated through the weird house in Clayton. Just set a trap! That’s the only way to catch a ghost. And how Jennie sets the trap to capture this troublesome spirit makes The Ghost Wore White as full of fun and mystery as a Halloween party. A single indoor setting and simple properties facilitate the performance of a play that old and young will find exciting, funny, and quite unusual. Of course, it wasn’t really a ghost that caused all the trouble . . . or was it?

Forever Friends:  Ash is devoted to her stuffed animals, even though she's thirteen and people give her a hard time. Turns out someone else knows exactly how she feels--who happens to be a terrifying ghost who lives in her closet. A whimsical tale of friendship between the human, ghostly, and stuffed.

The Halloween Party: The class is excited about the upcoming Halloween Party, everybody except Jenny who doesn't have the money to buy a costume. A surprise ending leaves everyone in the Halloween spirit.
