Fantasy and reality collide in this eclectic and fun musical romp!  Emily’s having a sleepover with her best friend Stephanie when they discover there’s a monster in her closet!  To investigate further, Emily and Stephanie recruit their studious friend Brain, and Emily’s skeptical sister Tina to help capture the monster.  What they don’t know is that Murray, the closet monster, doesn’t mean any harm.  He only wants to play Emily’s new video game.  He’s more scared of the kids than they are of him!  Murray is on probation since his boss, the Dream Queen, heard about his goofing off on the job.

Based on the original Broadway production that ran for over thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, and the Academy Award-winning motion picture, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance.  Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. features some of the most popular songs ever written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new songs by Mr. Menken and Tim Rice.
The classic story tells of Belle, a misunderstood young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast who, because he is selfish and unkind is trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will be lifted and he will become human again, but time is running out! If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be cursed for all eternity.
Join us and ‘be our guest’ as we tell this classic ‘tale as old as time’.

The Wonderland Player’s Guild has gathered once again and it’s business as usual until they realize one of their actors hasn’t arrived for the show! Everyone else is accounted for; they have the Hatter, the Queen of Hearts, even the Duchess and her Cook but, no Alice! All appears to be lost, how can you perform Alice in Wonderland with an Alice? Just then, fate intervenes and the players discover a young girl sitting on the bank of the river daydreaming and wishing something unusual would happen to her.
The players entice the girl into following the White Rabbit through the rabbit hole and down into Wonderland. There, she encounters a plethora of curious characters, size shifting edibles, and a card kingdom ruled by a queen with a penchant for baking tarts and removing heads. Logic and reason have taken a holiday as the girl attempts to navigate this new world of nonsense and wonder.

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)[revised]

How on earth can one theatre troup do the impossible: act through Shakespeare’s entire canon-37 plays- in 97 minutes? By summarizing the canon through football plays, rap songs, and outrageously condensed, comedy mash-up titles, of course! The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) hilariously summarizes all of Shakespeare’s plays, using reenactments and audience participation. It is famous for holding the (self-proclaimed) record for the shortest production of Hamlet at 43 seconds. An extremely popular play that ran in London for nine years and has enjoyed countless productions in various languages playing throughout the world, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) entertains and teaches audiences  facts about Shakespeare while ensuring them a rollicking good time.  Rated PG for mature language / suggestive humour.
