In this new musical version of the Peter Pan story, Peter's not the only one who won't grow up. Wendy's having trouble coming to terms with moving out of her childhood room and putting on adult clothes when she still wants to play. She gets to put off being a grown up a while longer when the daring Peter Pan comes along to whisk her away to the magical island of Neverland, where children never grow up. With the help of Tinkerbell, the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily, mermaids, and a rather dedicated crocodile, Peter and Wendy battle the dreaded -- but extremely funny -- Captain Hook. In this swashbuckling adventure, which includes opportunities for audience participation, our heroes must decide if growing up is really all that bad after all. Learn More

This was terrible -- we left at intermission, and it was everything we could do to stay that long. We're ok with new interpretations of Shakespeare, but this was ridiculous. I'm hoping that when they do the "straight" plays it's better...but I must say that from this experience, I'm not surprised they were in danger of becoming an extinct organization!
Illyria: A Twelfth Night Musical
Music & Lyrics by John R. Briggs and Eric Frampton
Directed by John R. Briggs
Shakespeare’s most musical play gets the royal treatment in this eclectic adaptation from the creator of 2010’s smash hit Shrew: the Musical. Two different women grieve the loss of a brother; one swears off men, while the other puts on a pair of trousers and joins them, setting off a comedy of errors that makes for a raucous, rocking good time.
Much Ado About Nothing
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Richard Garner
All is fair in love and war, and sometimes the two come hand in hand. When the kindly governor of Messina opens his home -- and that of his daughter and his niece -- to a group of soldiers returning from the front, passions ignite. Romances are born, even between the stubborn rivals Beatrice and Benedick, who have both disavowed love, while secretly harboring feelings for one another. The road to love proves a hilly one, filled with ups and downs, but not without a few laughs along the way.
The Importance of Being Earnest
By Oscar Wilde
Directed by Sabin Epstein
The turn of the century brought us some of most treasured and clever tales in literature, and those of the great Oscar Wilde are no exception. His comedic masterpiece follows the exploits of two young men -- Jack and Algernon -- each masquerading as a libertine named Earnest in order to pursue their lady love. But when they are caught in the act, a true farce unfolds, and a very real Earnest is revealed.
