How I Became a Pirate

Typically Tuesdays through Fridays

Based on the book by Melinda Long and Illustrated by David Shannon

Directed by Jenny Male

Recommended for all ages


Argh matey! It’s pirate's life for me on the high seas! One day as Jeremy builds a sand castle on the beach, a pirate ship rows ashore in search of a place to bury the pirate’s treasure. Taken aboard as an honorary pirate, Jeremy learns the ropes of what it really means to be a swashbuckling (but smelly) pirate, and the pirates just might learn how to play soccer too.

Frosty the Snow Man

November 28 – December 15, 2017

Typically Tuesdays through Fridays


Directed by Jason Schlafstein  

Recommended for all ages


Do you want to build a snow man? How about watching him spring to life in front of you for one day of adventures before he melts away? In this merry wintertime romp, chock-full of chuckles and comic antics, Frosty dances into the hearts of kids and adults alike- even the heart of one near-sighted cop- through his uproarious antics.



Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

February 13 – March 22, 2018

Typically Tuesdays through Fridays


Based on the book by Judith Viorst and illustrated by Ray Cruz 

Directed by Cara Gabriel 

Recommended for all ages


 Alexander is having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day. To be quite honest, it's a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. But then, everybody has bad days, sometimes. Not only does Alexander wake up with gum in his hair, but his mother forgets to pack him dessert, and his best friend decides he's not his best friend anymore. And if that's not bad enough, Alexander's brothers don't have any cavities but—he does. And just when it can't get any worse, there are lima beans for supper and —yuck!—kissing on TV. It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia. Uuuugggghhh.

Everyone knows the story of Peter Pan. Or, at least, everyone thinks they do. But unless you have heard it from Tinker Bell’s point of view, you really have not heard it at all. A new twinkling light shines on all the characters you love including, Wendy, the Lost Boys, Peter Pan, Smee, and the nefarious Hook from a feisty fairy’s point of view. 




Downloadable Study Guide – Lesson plan to connect your field trip to your work in the classroom.  Study guides will be available for the season at the beginning of the school year.

Having lunch after the show!

There is a large picnic area outside across from the theatre, as we are located inside a National Park.  The picnic area is located right next to a playground, so you can have lunch and play on the playground before getting back on the bus! 

Our indoor rehearsal hall is sometimes available for a small rental fee after the show if you would like an indoor area for lunch.
