Our other offerings for Season 6!
A friendly game of pirates becomes all too real when overzealous Theodore accidentally falls into a giant sinkhole and wakes up to find himself amongst real high sea swashbucklers. Before getting back to the real world, he is forced on an epic journey with his companion Harriet the Ghost in a quest to find the notorious pirate Weird Beard and foil the mutinous Mr. Clunky Bones. Will Theodore be able to save Captain Cramp Hand's ship from falling into evil clutches and return to his friends in time for ice cream?
Everyone's favorite pirate villain, Captain Hook, is a resident at The Jolly Roger Pirate Retirement Home, where he and his pals Blackbeard, Smee, Anne Bonny, and Captain Blood spend their days reminiscing about high times on the high seas. Through a series of flashbacks played out on stage, Hook tells the hilarious and touching story of his trials and tribulations with his arch nemesis, Peter Pan -- showing us Neverland from the pirates' point of view.
We’ve all heard the story of Cinderella a thousand times, but we’ve never heard about Bob, her long lost twin brother! Living in the same kingdom with different wicked stepfamilies, Cinderella’s cruel stepmother and evil stepsisters make her rotate tires and polish bowling trophies while Bob’s evil stepfather and cruel stepbrothers force him to make dried herb wreaths and organize their sock drawers. When Lou the UPS Guy arrives with invitations from the Kingdom of Wychwood-under-Ooze, Cinderella and Bob are both thrilled but forbidden to attend the festivities. With the help of the Fairy Godmother, the Godfather (he ain’t no fairy!), two enchanted gerbils and a lot of luck, they find a way!
When Fred is forced to go to the library to do a report, he meets the Book Master, a magical character who introduces him to some of the most popular fictional characters ever created. Before his eyes, sections from several great books are acted out. You can choose whichever 6 to 8 scenes of the 9 included to comprise a full evening's entertainment. Scenes include "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" and "Little Women" (Americana); "Jane Eyre" (Gothic); "Dracula" and "The Monkey's Paw" (horror); "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and "A Thousand and One Arabian Nights" (fantasy); "Great Expectations" (British); and "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" (detective). Your audience, like Fred, cannot help but become involved with the fantastical (fantastic + magical) friends who'll spring to life on stage.
