Program Description

Oliver! Book, Music and Lyrics by Lionel Bart December 4 – 13, 2019

The classic Charles Dickens’ story comes to life as Oliver, a hungry orphan, escapes the workhouse and finds himself amongst youthful thieves and pickpockets, led by the villainous Fagin. When Oliver is wrongly accused of theft and adopted by kindly Mr. Brownlow, Fagin employs the sinister Bill Sikes and sympathetic Nancy to kidnap him back, threatening Oliver’s chances of discovering the love of a new family. A musical feast for the holidays.

The Diary of Anne Frank by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman February 5 – 14, 2020

This classic story captures the fears, hope, laughter, and grief of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a claustrophobic attic. In this new adaptation for a new generation, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted girl who confronts her rapidly changing world with astonishing wit and determination. “When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I’ve never met. I want to go on living even after my death!” Recommended for ages 9 and up

When a freak accident reawakens Ben, Tori and her friend Scott must help him adjust to life in the 21st century. Complicating the situation is the fact that when Franklin’s energy drops, he transforms into a rampaging monster, desperately (and dangerously!) hungry for electricity.
