Special Grant Performance for Young People

Little Hood gets distracted in the forest, but her ability to simultaneously pay attention to multiple things comes in handy when it’s time to save her granny from the wolf. 

This fidgety fairy tale has gentle humor and great music.  This performance gives kids and grown-ups the tools to have important conversations about mental health. This show focuses on the topic of ADHD.

It's time for bed - time to pick up our toys, take a bath time, brush our teeth and put our PJs on to end the day. But wait! What's that noise I hear under my bed? Where's my teddy bear? See how bedtime can really be a blast in this creative and cozy musical.

February 2, 2023

"Eurydice" reimagines the classic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice not through Orpheus's infamous pilgrimage to retrieve his bridge, but through the eyes of its heroine. Dying too young on her wedding day, Eurydice must journey to the underworld, where she reunites with her father and struggles to remember her lost love.

Spring Play

Drama critic Mortimer Brewster’s engagement announcement is upended when he discovers a corpse in his elderly aunts’ window seat. Mortimer rushes to tell Abby and Martha before they stumble upon the body themselves, only to learn that the two old women aren’t just aware of the dead man in their parlor, they killed him! Between his aunts’ penchant for poisoning wine, a brother who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt, and another brother using plastic surgery to hide from the police—not to mention Mortimer’s own hesitancy about marriage—it’ll be a miracle if Mortimer makes it to his wedding. Arsenic and Old Lace is a classic black comedy about the only thing more deadly than poison: family.
