TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES is a charming play based on the story by the Brothers Grimm, adapted by Richard Hellesen, and directed by Betsy Goldman. Once upon a time, a king had twelve daughters whose shoes were always tattered and worn. Each day, the king gave his daughters new shoes, and by the next morning, the new shoes were ruined once again. How do the king's daughters manage to ruin their shoes every single night? Desperate to find the answer, the king offers an amazing reward to the one person who can figure out this mystery. Come and enjoy discovering the mystifying secret of the King's twelve princesses!

THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES is a new play written and directed by Luke Jorgensen. Sherlock is BACK! And it's his most thrilling case yet - as Holmes and the ever-devoted Watson dig desperately through their long closed case file to find which of three criminal masterminds from the past is plotting against the famous sleuth. Can they discover the villain in time to save Sherlock from harm's way – while keeping his longest held secret? Join us for a rollicking romp through long-ago London with the world's greatest detective and the world's most loyal best friend. A suspenseful and exciting play that is fully appropriate for children and camp groups!

HONK! Jr. is a delightful musical by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe, directed by Maggie Maguire. Ugly looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat. Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be at all!
