Children will adore this wonderfully imaginative and creative play based on the famous stories of Rudyard Kipling. Mowgli is a jungle boy raised by wolves. He lives in the bush with his good friends Baloo, the bear, Bagheera, the panther and Kaa, the python snake. His mortal enemy is Shere Khan, a man-eating tiger. Shere Khan wants to rule the jungle, and it's up to Mowgli to defeat him. This is truly a 'participation' show as the audience gets to portray silly monkeys, helpful elephants, wolves, reptiles, bees and even a tropical storm. Also contains a message about the importance of ecology.

October 17 thru 25th

 Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 PM, Sunday at 2:00 PM

Six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn't everything and that losing doesn't necessarily make you a loser. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious tale of overachievers' angst chronicling the experience of six adolescent outsiders vying for the spelling championship of a lifetime. The show's Tony Award winning creative team has created the unlikeliest of hit musicals about the unlikeliest of heroes: a quirky yet charming cast of outsiders for whom a spelling bee is the one place where they can stand out and fit in at the same time.

 Book and lyrics by James W. Rodgers. Music by John Higgins.

Based on the film by Frank Capra.

Produced by Miriam Henry

Directed by Kevin Gunther

Musically Directed by Nicole Barrow White

Choreographed by Susan Zuckerman

It's A Wonderful Life is a musical adaptation of Frank Capra's Christmas classic masterpiece film. This is the saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, whose dreams of escape and adventure have been squashed by family obligations and civic duty, and whose guardian angel has to descend on Christmas Eve to save him from despair, and to remind him - by showing him what the world would have been like had he never been born - that he has had after all, a wonderful life.
