The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA was the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium. Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true, and so was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike still soar when the slipper fits. This Enchanted Edition is based on the 1997 teleplay. — Project Type: Live Event

Ramona endures some embarrassing episodes at school and learns to address a misunderstanding she has with her teacher. At home, Ramona observes the strain that financial concerns are placing on her family but affirms that they are still a happy family.
The story is told from Ramona’s point of view, with sympathy for the confusion she sometimes experiences when she does not fully understand what she sees and hears. The author also acknowledges that events that might seem trivial to an adult may be extremely important to a child. When Ramona’s mother mistakenly puts a raw egg in her lunch box instead of the hard-boiled egg she is expecting, Ramona ends up with egg in her hair from cracking the shell on her head. She overhears her teacher say “What a nuisance”, and mistakenly believes the remark to be about her personally. — Project Type: Live Event

“The Elephant Man”
Drama by Bernard Pomerance
In Victorian London, Dr. Frederick Treves with the London Hospital comes across a circus sideshow attraction run by a man named Bytes called “The Elephant Man”. In actuality, the creature on display is indeed a man, twenty-one year old John Merrick who has several physical deformities, including an oversized and disfigured skull, and oversized and disfigured right shoulder. Brutish Bytes, his “owner”, only wants whatever he can get economically by presenting Merrick as a freak. Treves manages to bring Merrick under his care at the hospital – not without several of its own obstacles, including being questioned by those in authority since Merrick cannot be cured. Treves initially believes Bytes’ assertion that mute Merrick is an imbecile, but ultimately learns that Merrick can speak and is a well-read and articulate man. As news of Merrick hits the London newspapers, he becomes a celebrated curiosity amongst London’s upper class, including with Mrs. Kendal, a famed actress. Despite treated much more humanely, the question becomes whether Treves’ actions are a further exploitation of Merrick. And as Merrick becomes more famous, others try to get their two-cents worth from who still remains a curiosity and a freak to most, including to Bytes, who has since lost his meal ticket. — Project Type: Live Event

It is set in a faraway kingdom turned upside down, where an unseemly ogre — not a handsome prince — shows up to rescue a feisty princess. Throw in a donkey who won’t shut up, a bad guy with a short temper, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand…and his name is Shrek. Full of all-new songs, great dancing, great scenery, and even a giant dragon, Shrek the Musical is part romance, part twisted fairy tale and irreverent fun for everyone!
