Alice in Wonderland
adapted by Anne Coulter Martens from the novel by Lewis Carroll
Follow that rabbit to a delightful, entertaining world of childhood fantasies.  Alice journeys into a world of talking animals, comic royalty and talking, disappearing cats.  There are also the Mad Hatter's frantic tea party, the watch-carrying White Rabbit and talking flowers.  Along the way Alice must deal with a sneezing duchess and a baby that turns into a pig.  The finale has Alice watching a trial, but she suddenly finds herself the accused.  The play gives a modern view to an old classic, where nonsense makes quite good sense.

             David and Lisa

by James Reach
Adapted from the book by Theodore Isaac Rubin and the Screenplay by Eleanor Perry
The award winning motion picture has been adapted for the stage with the utmost fidelity. It retells the strange, appealing and utterly fascinating story of two mentally disturbed adolescents: David, the only son of wealthy parents who is tortured by his mania against being touched, and Lisa, the waif with a split personality. One of her selves will speak only in childish rhymes and insists on being spoken to in the same manner. The play follows their exhilarating progresses and depressing retrogression during one term at Berkeley School, where they have come under the sympathetic guidance of psychiatrist Alan Swinford and his staff. Fellow students include Carlos, the street urchin; the over romantic Kate and stout Sandra, among others. Laughter, heart break and suspense distinguish this authentic and well told story.

The Aliens are Coming! The Aliens are Coming!
by Tim Kelly
This show is for grade 3-5 performers.
The Meteorite Inn is located on a lonely stretch of desert highway.  The owners of the shabby inn, Doug and his sister, Peggy, decide to capitalize on the fact that they're close to a restricted zone known only as "Area 502."  (Rumor has it the government keeps an alien prisoner housed there!)  The hotel's dining room specialty becomes "Marsburgers" and they rent out the conference room to Hyacinth Muggleworth, a rather eccentric lady who's holding a UFO convention.  Before you can say "Independence Day," the Meteorite Inn is overflowing with excited UFO believers and speakers who claim they've been abducted by aliens and held prisoner in spaceships!  The army moves in and quarantines the place as "aliens" turn up uninvited.  After all, who knows if they are real or fake?  As the military continues to confuse matters, everyone gets involved:  poor Mayor Mintweed goes cuckoo; Mabel Shoemaker, snapping string beans one minute, finds herself being jabbed with alien fingernails the next; Sheriff Chickamauga tries to figure things out as he munches on a doughnut.  Audiences will gasp as an alien autopsy is performed in front of their eyes and shiver as an alien starship hovers overhead and visitors put their diabolical plans on "forward"?  Without a doubt, audiences will burst with laughter as the UFO conventioneers go ballistic and the secret of the restricted zone is revealed.  With its hilarious action and funny dialogue, this play is out of this world!  You could even say it's X-cellent!

13
Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn
A grown-up story about growing up!
When his parents get divorced and he's forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, Evan Goldman just wants to make friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done.
The star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life and his only friend, Patrice, won't talk to him. The school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading the nastiest rumors.  With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, "13" is a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it.

Once Upon a Shoe
by Joseph Robinette
This show is for grade 1 and 2 performers.
Mother Goose sadly announces to her children that they must leave their home—a large, comfortable shoe—and move to an old sneaker "across the tracks." The children decide to "put on a show" to save their shoe, and in the best Garland/Rooney tradition, they proceed to enact eight of Mother Goose's best poems. In the audience, a stranger turns out to be the famous movie producer Cecil B. DeMillstream and, of course, he loves the show! The shoe is saved and Mother Goose and her troupe are off to Hollywood.
