With a tweak and a twist, the children’s tale of the Billy Goats Gruff has become the perfect tool to teach young audiences about bullying. School age children (and adults alike) will delight in this light-hearted, funny show, hardly aware that they’re also receiving a timely lesson. The action is non-stop in this delightful and educational masterpiece! There will be a question and answer period following each performance to reinforce the lessons learned about bullying that are emphasized in the show. This 50 minute production is appropriate for all but is especially geared for grade school and middle school aged children.

The world's greatest love story takes to the streets in this landmark Broadway musical that is one of the theatre's finest accomplishments. Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is transported to modern-day New York City, as two young idealistic lovers find themselves caught between warring street gangs, the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Their struggle to survive in a world of hate, violence and prejudice is one of the most innovative, heart-wrenching and relevant musical dramas of our time.

The action is set in Truvy's beauty salon in Chinquapin, Louisiana, where all the ladies who are "anybody" come to have their hair done. Filled with hilarious banter and not a few prickly but humorously revealing verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy when, in the second act, the spunky Shelby (who is a diabetic) risks pregnancy and forfeits her life. The sudden realization of their mortality affects the others, but also draws on the underlying strength—and love—which give the play, and its characters, the special quality to make them truly touching, funny, and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

Based on the Gospel According to St. Matthew, a small group of people help tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville is employed as the story of the gospel dances across the stage. As it dissolves hauntingly into the last supper and the crucifixion, the messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.
