Apr 21 – May 21, 2017 • ALL AGES • World Premiere
Script & Lyrics by Jeannine Coulombe, Music by Michael Gruber
An original musical adaptation based on the European folktale
The classic folktale of the feared strangers who inspire a whole community through the use of one little stone charms its way onto our main stage this spring in a world premiere musical. When war-weary foreigners arrive in the village square, fear and suspicion reign. But as the outsiders start to make soup out of a stone, each of the locals is prompted to contribute to the ever-growing, communal meal. Come share this ageless story with us as it serves up a delightfully poignant reminder that community is built one ingredient at a time.
Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures
Apr 28 – May 20, 2017 • Ages 8+ • World Premiere Exclusive!
Script adaptation written by Cristina Pippa
Based on the book by Kate DiCamillo.
The super-hero squirrel, Ulysses and the self-proclaimed cynic Flora Belle Buckman land in our Hopkins Jaycees Studio this spring in an inspiring story of being born anew. When Flora saves Ulysses after he is sucked up through a vacuum cleaner, neither could predict the changes that will ensue. This eccentric, endearing saga about the possibilities of hope and the promises of a capacious heart is a world premiere adaptation based on the #1 New York Times best-selling author, Kate DiCamillo’s 2014 Newbery Medal winner.
RECOMMENDED FOR AGES 8+
Shrek The Musical
Theatre for Young Audiences version
Jun 23 – Jul 30, 2017 • All Ages
Book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. Music by Jeanine Tesori. Originally produced on Broadway by DreamWorks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions.
The rousing fairy tale adventure of an ogre turned unlikely hero galumphs onto our main stage this summer in this Tony Award-winning musical based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film. A wise-cracking Donkey, a feisty princess, a short-tempered villain, a cookie with an attitude and dozens of fairy tale misfits stir up the kind of muddled mayhem that calls for a real hero. Fortunately, Shrek is on his way!
Theatre for the Very Young
Aug 4 – 19, 2017 • Ages 1-5 • World Premiere Exclusive!
Based on the book by Leo Lionni.
Journey with us to the depths of the ocean as our Theatre for the Very Young series continues this season with the subtly beautiful tale of Swimmy, based on the Caldecott Honor book by Leo Lionni. Being a different color doesn’t stop Swimmy from teaching his fellow fish to think “outside the box.” His uniqueness is just the thing to inspire his school to work together to ward off impending danger. Swimmy may also just inspire our youngest audiences to join in this imaginative under water adventure.
