During her first term at school, the two forge a bond as Miss Honey begins to recognize and appreciate Matilda's extraordinary personality. Matilda's school life isn't completely smooth sailing, however – the school's mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves to punish those who don't abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the hero of her own story after all!
CLUE 7/26/23 - IT IS NOT GREASE!
Here is Rydell High's senior class of 1959: smooth-talking Burger Palace Boys and the sassy Pink Ladies in bobby sox and pedal pushers. Head Greaser, Danny Zuko, and new girl, Sandy Dumbrowski, try to relive the high romance of their "Summer Nights" as the rest of the gang sings and dances its way through such songs as "Greased Lightnin'", "It's Raining on Prom Night", "Alone at the Drive-In Movie." The school edition is "kid-friendly" and removes any adult language/ references such as Rizzo's unexpected pregnancy. The beloved musical Grease holds it's place firmly, among the world's most popular shows, for good reason! It's fabulous!
CLUE 7/5/23 - IT IS NOT ALADDIN!
In Agrabah, City of Enchantment, every beggar has a story and every camel has a tail! Aladdin, a kind but wily street urchin, falls in love with the beautiful Princess Jasmine, whom he knows is waaaaay out of his league. It just so happens, however, that the Sultan has declared Princess Jasmine must choose a husband. After she turns down the offers from various wealthy suitors, Aladdin -- with the help of a fast-talking, magical Genie -- introduces himself as wealthy suitor Prince Ali Ababua. Meanwhile, evil royal advisor Jafar also has his sights set on the kingdom, and tries to convince the Sultan to force Jasmine to wed him. Will love conquer all? Perhaps - if love has a little help from a Genie.
Welcome to New York City, 1899. Jack Kelly and his ragtag team of newsies make a meager living selling newspapers on the city streets.

Can a group of idealistic newsboys win against a foe as powerful as acclaimed publisher Joseph Pulitzer?

A musical perfect for the whole family, Seussical takes us into the world of Dr. Seuss. The Cat in the Hat guides us into The Jungle of Nool where we meet Horton, the kind hearted elephant who discovers a speck of dust containing Whoville. Horton is introducted to JoJo, a Who child sent to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton decides he must protect the speck of dust on a nearby clover, while at the same time protecting an abandoned egg left to his care by the lazy Mayzie la Bird. Horton tries to convince the other animals in The Jungle of the existence of the Whos, but he is ridiculed and put on trial for insanity. Only his loyal neighbor, Gertrude McFuzz, never loses faith in him. One of the most widely produced musicals in the country, Seussical weaves a story of friendship, loyalty, and love.
