TREASURE ISLAND is based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale and has been wonderfully adapted by Luke Jorgensen. Adventure beckons when a mysterious blind man delivers a dreaded Black Spot to an aging sea captain, plunging two children into a desperate race for buried treasure armed with only their wits against a dastardly crew of cutthroat pirates. Set sail with young Hawkins, the larger-than-life Long John Silver and a crew of swashbuckling rogues, as Treasure Island explodes like a cannon ball onto the stage regaling thrill-seekers of all ages with a story both epic and intimate in this hilarious and harrowing adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's most beloved novel.

THE GRUMPIEST BOY IN THE WORLD, by Finegan Kruckemeyer, is the story of Zachary Briddling, who is awfully middling — meaning he is very ordinary. He is of average height, he has very average hair, and at night he dreams precisely average dreams. Zachary desperately wants to be unique. To this end he undertakes a fabulous adventure to find the place where he might stand out. His travels are filled with giants, tiny villages, and wondrous creatures of all shapes and size. Intended for audiences 5 years and older, this hilarious and imaginative story is perfect for anyone who has sought to discover and embrace their own unique identity.

FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, Jr. A special adaptation of the nine-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Fiddler on the Roof, Jr. tells the story of Tevye, a poor dairyman, and his five daughters. With the help of a colorful and tight-knit Jewish community, Tevye tries to marry off his daughters and instill in them a sense of tradition in the face of a changing world. Created by Broadway legends Jerome Robbins, Harold Prince, Jerry Bock, Sheldon Harnick and Joseph Stein, Fiddler on the Roof, Jr. tackles the universal theme of tradition in ways that reach across barriers of race, class, nationality and religion.
