The high-stakes world of middle-school spelling competitions takes center stage in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. This musical comedy follows six overachieving would-be wordsmiths and their neurotic parents. The hilariously catchy songs capture teenage troubles at their worst from "Woe Is Me" to "My Unfortunate Erection (Chip's Lament)." And the contest teaches the valuable lesson that winning isn't the only definition of success. With music and lyrics by William Finn and a book by Rachel Sheinkin, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee was nominated for Best Musical and five other Tony Awards in its original run, winning for Best Book.

A traditional British Pantomime
Young Peter’s evil brothers have cheated him out of his inheritance, leaving him with nothing but his mangy old cat. Worse, the girl he loves is really a princess, and her mother wants her to marry a rich lord. Plus, a hungry ogre is looking for dinner. But wait! Mother Goose casts a spell on the cat, and it’s Puss in Boots to the rescue!
Pantomime is a British tradition of winter musical comedy theatre. Not to be mistaken with mime – silent performers in white-face make up. British pantomime takes familiar fairy tales and children's stories such as Cinderella, Aladdin, Dick Whittington and His Cat, Snow White and injects a bit of music hall (British Vaudeville) sensibility, contemporary references and audience participation to create a raucous, noisy entertainment that's fun for the whole family.
