The Jungle Book


The Jungle Book
April 22-May 28, 2017
By Greg Banks
Based on the story by Rudyard Kipling
Directed by Janet Stanford
Best for Ages 4+

Mowgli is a human child brought up in the jungles of India by a family of wolves. The embittered tiger Shere Kahn may be stalking him, but Mowgli is a quick learner. His friends, Baloo the goofy bear, and Bagheera, the savvy Jaguar, teach him how to gain the trust of the four-footed hunters, the birds, and the snakes so that he will never be friendless. He falls into a bad crowd of silly monkeys who lead him astray and play a mean trick on him. How will Mowgli escape from the deep, dark well? And, how will he save himself when Shere Kahn turns the wolf pack against him? Kipling’s timeless classic deals with very timely issues in this lively new version. Mowgli learns to respect his environment and the wisdom of the animals. And, he realizes that, as a grown man, it’s his responsibility to protect them.

Lucky Stiff
May 19-21, 2017
Presented by the Musical Theatre Conservatory
(Graduating Class of 2017)
Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Music by Stephen Flaherty
Directed by Jenna Duncan


Lucky Stiff is an offbeat, hilarious murder mystery farce, complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds, and a corpse in a wheelchair. The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn… or else his uncle’s gun-toting ex! Featuring a tuneful Flaherty and Ahrens score, an ensemble cast of zany characters, and small rock combo orchestra, Lucky Stiff is an audience charmer!


Wonderland: Alice’s Rock & Roll Adventure
June 21-August 13, 2017 
Book and Lyrics by Rachel Rockwell
Music and Lyrics by Michael Mahler

Based on the classics by Lewis Carroll
Directed by Kathryn Chase Bryer
Best for Ages 5+


Alice follows the White Rabbit into Wonderland where all of the familiar characters have been transformed into live guitar-toting Rock ‘n’ Roll musicians! She takes advice from a Zen Caterpillar and a wise Cheshire Cat. She has tea with the unwelcoming Mad Hatter, and argues with the childish Tweedledee and Tweedledum. When the vicious diva Red Queen tries to destroy her, Alice fights back only to find herself in a battle of the bands with the Jabberwocky, a many-headed monster who embodies all her fears and insecurities. Alice ultimately outperforms him on keyboard and drums; she is crowned at last, and returns home, a stronger and happier girl. The writers have successfully translated Carroll’s irrational Wonderland to our own times and added lyrics and a beat that will make you want to twist and shout!
