The classic tale of kindness to animals trots, crawls and flies onto the stage in Doctor Dolittle JR. All of the characters we’ve come to love through the stories of Hugh Lofting and the magical movie musical are given new life in the stage version. The musical tells the classic tale of a wacky, but kind, doctor who can talk to animals, taking the audience on a journey from the small English village of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh to the far corners of the world.

Disney’s High School Musical Jr.

It’s the first day after winter break at East High. The Jocks, Brainiacs, Thespians and Skater Dudes all find their cliques. Basketball team captain and resident jock, Troy, discovers that the brainy Gabriella, a girl he met singing karaoke on his ski trip, has just enrolled at East High. The couple causes an upheaval when they decide to audition for the high school musical. Although many students resent the threat posed to the “status quo,” Troy and Gabriella’s alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

Summer Theatre Camps

Dreamland Youth (Ages 9-14)

Week 1- The Epic Tale of Beauty and the Beast

Dates: July 2nd-6th, 2018; Performance: July 6th, 2018

We just can’t get enough of this tale as old as time. In this story, a poor widow has plucked a forbidden rose from the Beast’s garden, and he allows her to go free in exchange for Beauty staying with him. From there, you know the story, and this one is delightfully told complete with a battle scene that includes talking furniture. The story is familiar, but the lessons about the power of love and beauty that is more than skin deep never get old.

Week 2-Rap-Punzel

Dates: July 9th-13th; Performance: July 13th

In this funny, pun-filled version of the classic fairy tale, a hip group of rappers narrates the story, which is told almost completely in verse! Never sing-songy and always entertaining, the rhymes are skillfully woven as the rappers arrange themselves into various set pieces, such as the witch’s wall and the garden that grows all kinds of greens! When a doting husband climbs (and crashes over!) the wall to steal the sought-after garden greens to satisfy his wife’s overpowering craving, the witch demands their unborn baby as her revenge. After all, those garden greens are the witch’s babies, so it’s an even exchange in her eyes! As the story goes, the hen-pecked husband’s hands are tied, so the lovely baby Rapunzel is raised by the witch in an ivory tower. Soon Rapunzel yearns for life beyond her window sill, and when a handsome rescuer appears, her overprotective “adoptive” mother witch fears she will lose her daughter forever. Rap-Punzel is a tasty mix of fresh, action-packed humor and wholesome fun, drizzled with giggles and good times for all.

Week 3-Charming!

Dates: July 16th-20th,2018; Performance: July 20th, 2018

Once upon a time, the Wicked Stepmothers’ Association (during one of their brilliant evil plans), tried to get rid of all the frogs, but one frog escaped and became Prince Charming. To the stepmothers’ dismay, he continuously rescues each of the queen’s six daughters from all the perils that come with being princesses, including the danger of missing their tanning booth appointments! Furious at this turn of events, the stepmothers want to cast a sleeping spell on the prince. But to make the magic work, he first must wish he was a frog again. In a hysterical scene the likes of which the stage has never seen before, the stepmothers devise so many princesses and others who need rescuing that poor Prince Charming feels like he’s in a decathalon!

Week 4-Wishful Thinking

Dates: July 23rd-27th; Performance: July 27th

Weird things are happening in English class as the students are supposed to be studying for a quiz on The Monkey’s Paw, a classic short horror story about making wishes that tamper with fate. When the students find a rabbit’s foot, they pretend it’s the monkey’s paw and decide to make three wishes. With many hilarious arguments, they decide on their first wish and see it come true… with a twist. The same thing happens with the second wish. Sure, they wished that their substitute would be “cool,” but they didn’t mean for her to be cold and turn up the heat to sweltering in the classroom! By the time they’re at the third wish, most of the students have learned the lesson of The Monkey’s Paw — that trying to change fate can have unexpected consequences

Week 5-Pan!

Dates: July 30th- August 3rd; Performance August 3rd.

Everyone’s favorite Story of Peter Pan. You’ll meet the dog Nana, who can’t stop the Darling children from following Peter and Tinkerbell through the nursery open window to Neverland. There, they make friends with the Lost Boys and Princess Tiger Lily as they encounter Captain Hook, his gang of wily pirates, and of course, the ticking crocodile. This fast-paced show is packed with adventure and ideal to introduce the boy who wouldn’t grow up to the next generation.
