2019-20 Season


Charlotte’s Web
Performances April 3-5

E.B. White’s classic novel is brought to new heights in this enchanting musical version of Charlotte’s Web. All the familiar characters are here: Wilbur, the irresistible young pig who desperately wants to avoid the butcher; Fern, a girl who understands what animals say to each other; Templeton, the gluttonous rat who can occasionally be talked into a good deed; the Zuckerman family; the Arables; and, most of all, the extraordinary spider, Charlotte, who proves to be “a true friend and a good writer.”


I Never Saw Another Butterfly
Performances May 2 & 3

This new musical version of Celeste Raspanti’s widely produced play brings an added dimension to the story of the children of Terezin, a ghetto under Nazi rule during World War II. Though few of the children survived, their lives were given meaning and hope through the tireless efforts of an inspirational teacher, Irena, who challenged their creativity and artistry in a makeshift classroom using scavenged materials which she kept hidden from the authorities. More than 5,000 drawings, poems and prose pieces were produced by the children in the concentration camp during its three- year existence, thus providing a legacy that continues to be honored and celebrated today.


Rent School Edition
Performances June 5 – 7

La Vie Boheme! Jonathan Larson’s iconic Pulitzer Prize-winning musical that shaped a generation of audiences and taught us all to measure our life in love. Set in the East Village of New York City, RentSchool Edition is about falling in love, finding your voice and living for today.
