Aesop's Falables (A Rock Musical!)
Book by Ed Graczyk / Music by Shirley Hansen / Lyrics by Marty Connie & Ed Graczyk
Saturday, February 16 & 23 @ 1:00 PM & 4:00 PM
Sunday, February 17 & 24 @ 1:00pm & 4:00pm
This show is a hilarious musical theatre version of Aesop’s Fables with a rock and roll beat. Sir Wilfred Wolf, who claims he has been wrongfully penned by Aesop as the bad guy, the play undertakes to overturn other fables. The fables all collide, mix and match, and reveal new stories. Aesop's Falables draws new morals from other fables, somewhat different from the old familiar ones. The play includes scenes of crazy fun as everybody does the "Rock, rock with old Aesop."
From the book by Roald Dahl / Dramatized by Richard R. George
Saturday, April 27 & May 4 @ 1:00pm & 4:00pm
Sunday, April 28 & May 5 @ 1:00pm & 4:00pm
A magical peach! An imprisoned boy! Insect friends! An incredible journey! This amazing adventure of James Henry Trotter will fulfill the fantasy of anyone who has ever dreamed of escape. Roald Dahl's story comes hilariously to life in this delightful dramatization that reveals the wickedness of some, the goodness of others, and the indecision encountered by many when they are faced with crises. You will see James (as he cleverly gets the Peach out of danger), the wise Old-Green-Grasshopper and the pessimistic Earthworm.
Adapted by Joseph Robinette / Based on the book by E.B. White

The Children's Literature Association named this "the best American children's book of the past two hundred years," so why not make it an amazing stage play?! All the enchanting characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to one another; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the "miracle" of her web in which she writes, "Some pig." And Wilbur sure is “some pig” indeed. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship, compassion and caring for others that will delight kids and adults alike.
