When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion, which results in a tremendous peach - and launches a journey of enormous proportions.  Suddenly, James finds himself in the center of the gigantic peach amond human-sized insects with equally oversized personalities, but after it falls from the tree and rolls into the ocean, the group faces hunger, sharks and plenty of disagreements.  Thanks to James' quick wit and creative thinking, the residents learn to live and work together as a family.  The dangerous voyage is a success, but the adventure takes a whole new twist once they land on the Empire State Building.


Like the musical film of the same name, Scrooge The Musical closely follows the plot of Charles Dickins' A Christmas Carol, in which the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge ungoes a profound experience of redemption over the course of a Christmas Eve night, after being visited by the ghost of his former partner, Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future.  With unforgettable musical numbers like "I Like Life", "Happiness", and "Thank You Very Much", this production is sure to put you in the holiday spirit!


A delightful adaptation of four of Barbara Park's best-selling books brought to life in a genuinely comical, and not strictly-for-kids musical awaken a young person's desire to read.
It's Junie B.'s first day of first grade and a lot of things have changed for her: Junie's friend Lucille doesn't want to be her best pal anymore, and on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school.  Also, Junie has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher Mr. Scary thinks she may need glasses.  Throw in a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a "Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal", and first grade has never been more exciting.
