adapted for the stage by Joseph Robinette
Calling all 2nd-5th grader actors! Join us for the stage adaptation of what The Children's Literature Association named this "the best American children's book of the past two hundred years."
All the enchanting 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.” Determined to save Wilbur, Charlotte begins her campaign with the "miracle" of her web in which she writes, "Some pig." It's the beginning of a victorious campaign which ultimately ends with the now-safe Wilbur doing what is most important to Charlotte. This is a beautiful, knowing play about friendship that will give our actors and audiences a journey of enchantment.

By Alan Menken, Harvey Fierstein and Jack Feldman
Casting 6th-9th graders (*some 5th graders with dance experience may be considered) for the hit Broadway musical, based on the 1992 film. Inspired by the rousing true story of newsboys in turn-of-the-century New York City, Newsies JR. features a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein.
When powerful newspaper publishers raise prices at the newsboys' expense, the charismatic Jack Kelly rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions. Together, the newsies learn that they are stronger united and create a movement to fight for what's right.

PUFFS by Matt Cox
“‘Hufflepuffs’ finally get their moment in hilarious Potter play, ‘PUFFS’!” —Mashable
For seven years a certain boy wizard went to a certain Wizard School and conquered evil. This, however, is not his story. This is the story of the Puffs... who just happened to be there too. A tale for anyone who has never been destined to save the world.
The New York Times proclaims PUFFS, “A FAST-PACED ROMP through the ‘Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic.’ For POTTERphiliacs who grew up alongside Potter and are eager to revisit that world, ‘PUFFS’ exudes a jovial, winking fondness for all things Harry!”
Rehearsals Start Feb 27th on Mondays: 6:30-9pm, Selected Wednesdays: 6:00-9:00pm and Saturdays 1-4pm.
Cost: Two payments of $300
