CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, by Richard R. George, adapted from the beloved fantasy by Roald Dahl, is directed by Betsy Goldman and Amy Menkin. Welcome to the wondrous world of confection, excitement, and a few surprises! Willy Wonka is opening his chocolate factory up to the public for a tour, and you're invited! Come join this journey to the heart of the factory, where all involved soon discover the true meaning of teamwork and cooperation. The delicious fun of Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory awaits you!

SIDEWAYS STORIES FROM WAYSIDE SCHOOL by Louis Sachar, adapted for the stage by John Olive, is directed by J. Casey Lane. Things are not always as they seem at the Wayside School. Though the plans called for a one story building with thirty classrooms, instead it was built as a thirty story building with one classroom on each floor! The classroom on the top floor is home to Mrs. Gorf, the world's meanest teacher who likes transforming students into apples. One day the students get their revenge, setting off a series of unlikely events, remarkable characters, and amazing adventures. Join us for this imaginative stage adaptation of the classic Louis Sachar book SIDEWAYS STORIES FROM WAYSIDE SCHOOL!

SHREK THE MUSICAL JR, is based on the Dream Works Animation Motion Picture and the book by William Steig, with book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, music by Jeanine Tesori, and originally produced on Broadway by DreamWorks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions. Magic Circle Theater’s production is directed by Luke Jorgensen. Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR. It’s a "big bright beautiful world" as everyone's favorite ogre, Shrek, sets off with a wisecracking donkey and leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, SHREK THE MUSICAL JR is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family. SHREK THE MUSICAL JR is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
