OUR FALL 2024 SEASON

The Little Prince

Revisit the whimsical, imaginative tale of a Prince from Outer Space, an Aviator stranded in a desert, and their emotional and everlasting bond. A beautifully theatrical exploration of love, loss, empathy, memory, and self-fulfillment, this story reminds us that, though there are many things that adults can teach children, there are quite a few more things that children may teach adults. So… what do YOU see: a Hat or an Elephant Eaten by a Snake?

Hansel and Gretel 

The muffin man, evil witches, and big bad wolves? Oh my! A warm, farcical, and lighthearted take on the age old fairy tale! A brother and sister journey through the mysterious woods. This is going to be a development piece, working off of our existing script. Actors/writers with development experience are encouraged to apply!

T.I.P.S and STEPS

Introducing… the dynamic duo of Mark and Mark! In this interactive improv performance, these two (former) famous TV stars share invaluable tips and tricks on how to keep bullying at bay in your neighborhood. Through laughter, empathy, and wit, they inspire children to become advocates for kindness and inclusivity. Don’t miss out on this empowering event that promises to leave a lasting impact on young hearts and minds.Together, let’s make our community a safer, happier place for everyone! Strong improvisors are highly encouraged to apply!

Our touring shows feature casts that are small but mighty – this production will feature a lot of character doubling, ensemble work, and transformation from people, to planets, to magical creatures, and movie stars. We are a development, ensemble focused theater!
