Youth Theatre


By Roald Dahl, adapted for the stage by David Wood


BFG artThe beloved children’s book by Roald Dahl, and future summer blockbuster film, is also an inventive play! Through crafty and clever stage magic, we see the story of an orphan girl named Sophie, as she encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because unlike his peers refuses to eat boys and girls. Imaginative and clever staging allow giants and humans to interact without the special effects of CGI! Presented on the MainStage, you will not want to miss the heroic, silly and heart-warming tale of friendship, as Sophie saves children of the world from child-eating giants! Interest Level: 1st through 5th grade.

Public performances: April 7, 8, 9, 14 and 15, 2016 (Fridays at 7pm, Saturdays at 2:30 & 7pm & Sundays at 2:30pm)

Vendini Artwork JUNGLE BOOK




The Jungle Book
By Rudyard Kipling, adapted for the stage by Scott Dunlap

Raised by wolves, Mowgli soon learns from his animal teachers, Baloo, the bear and Bagheera, the panther, to follow the “laws of the jungle.” His safety is threatened when Shere Khan, the man-eating tiger, returns to hunt in the jungle and Mowgli must use his human gifts to save himself and his friends and return to the “Man-Village.” This non-musical version, presented on the MainStage, isn’t based on the animated classic, but instead Kipling’s actual writings come to life onstage! Interest Level: 3rd grade and up.
 


Public performances: Oct. 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 23, 2016 (Fridays at 7pm, Saturdays at 2:30 & 7pm & Sundays at 2:30pm)
