This holiday season, there's a mystery afoot and Shirley the Partridge is on the case. Based on the beloved Christmas carol The Twelve Days of Christmas, this new Yuletide adventure by award-winning playwright Renee Calarco follows Shirley as she tries to placate feuding French hens, retrieve the geese, who've flown south for the winter, and recover the stolen five golden rings in time for Christmas. Helen Hayes Award winner Deidra LaWan Starnes stars in this fun holiday celebration for the whole family. Learn More

I was sorely disappointed, and I wish I hadn't brought my 4 1/2 yo and 7 yo...the music was seat-shakingly loud, there was actually quite a bit of (stylized) violence, way too many commercial/pop culture references, and, most disappointingly, the show perpetrated negative (Hawai'ian and Californian) stereotypes. The show is recommended for 4 and above, but there was nothing in it I thought to be actually "good" for my children and much that was, quite possibly, harmful.

Based on the popular children's book series by Jeff Brown. One night, the bulletin board on the wall above Stanley Lambchop's bed comes loose and falls -- right on top of Stanley! The next morning, he wakes up flat . . . really, really flat. He discovers that he can slide under locked doors, roll up like a mat, become a trampoline and even put himself in a big envelope and travel around the world via the postal service!
Recommended for ages 4 and up
