This truly spectacular show not only features amazing feats of strength, agility and flexibility from the skilled performers of this world-famous Chinese troupe -- but you may be more than pleasantly surprised by the company's display of sly humor, dazzling color and great music. Drawing on more than 2000 years of tradition, the Peking Acrobats create a true cirque-style carnival of dance, gymnastics, plate-twirling, juggling and cycling that's gained them worldwide fame -- including an appearance in the hit movie Ocean's 11.

Blood Brothers, by award-winning playwright Willy Russell (Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine), takes the classic story of twins separated at birth and transforms it into a moving musical tragedy.
Mrs. Johnstone has been deserted by her husband, who has left her with seven children to raise. When she learns that she is expecting twins, she is close to despair. Mrs. Johnstone cleans the house of Mrs. Lyons, who is rich and childless. When Mrs. Lyons hears that Mrs. Johnstone is to have twins, she begs one of her twins from her at birth.
The two boys grow up separately, never knowing the truth about their birth. In time they become firm friends--blood brothers--and even fall in love with the same girl. Mrs. Lyons tries to keep the boys apart, but fate brings them together again.
This is a staged reading. The actors will have scripts in hand.
