Seussical Jr., April 2013

2012-2013 Seussical Jr., facebook

Music by Stephen Flaherty
Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Book by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty
Co-Conceived by Lynn Ahrens, Stephen Flaherty and Eric Idle
Based on the works of Dr. Suess
Directed by Owen Robertson

The story centers around Horton the Elephant, who finds himself faced with a double challenge–not only must he protect his tiny friend Jojo (and all the invisible Whos) from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left to his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him, the only one who recognizes “his kind and his powerful heart.” Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant, in a story that makes you laugh and cry.

April 12th-28th, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.

Gold, Frankincense, Christmas Tree Ornaments and Myrrh, December 2012

Book by Thomas Ohlson
Directed by Kevin Tribble
Written specifically for Christmas, this popular, wonderfully warm and witty play has been performed successfully throughout the year. It is based on both the traditional Christmas stories and modern inventions, and tells of the birth and boyhood of Jesus, and of his growing awareness of his destiny. It also tells of a would-be fourth wise man and his comic attempts to capitalize on the coming of the Messiah.

“It is a charming, novel play on an ancient theme. Especially timed for the Christmas season, the play emphasizes what must be a constant complaint of Christian clergymen: that the Christ-mas message is being lost through materialism, commercialism, and flimsy extraneousness. The very title is suggestive of the danger.”– Dr. Arthur T. Buch, Senior Rabbi of Congregation Share Zedek, New York City, writing in the Herald News, Passaic, NJ

  • Adults (under 60)–$14

Once Upon A Mattress, August & September 2012

Music by Mary Rodgers
Book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller and Marshall Barer
Lyrics by Marshall Barer
Directed by Steve Schultz

If you thought you knew the story of ‘“The Princess and The Pea,” you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.

August 24th-September 9th. Fridays and Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM
