COMEDY. Adapted from the play Make Believe by A. A. Milne. The King and Queen are eager to decide who will marry their daughter since her suitors, who have rather hearty appetites, are eating them out of castle and kingdom. The suitors include the snobby Yellow Prince, who doesn’t like to get his hands dirty; the Blue Prince, who likes to stare into space; and the Red Prince, who is phony and condescending. To find the suitor with the kindest heart, the King and Queen decide to test them by having the Queen disguise herself as a beggar and ask each suitor for a crust of bread. However, unbeknownst to her parents, the Princess has proposed marriage to the “oh so very slow and uncomprehending but entirely adorable” Woodcutter. The Princess and Woodcutter overhear the King and Queen’s plans and concoct a scheme in which the Woodcutter will prove to have the kindest heart with the help of three pieces of dreadfully dry, moldy bread. Delightfully wacky characters take center stage in this hilarious play!

COMEDY. Hear ye! Hear ye! Prince Allistair must marry within one year or forfeit his claim to the throne. In addition, he must find a princess who is able to host large dinners with elegance and flair, instruct servants in a firm manner, and look glorious in a crown! With time running out, Prince Allistair and his faithful servant venture forth to find the perfect princess bride. However, it doesn’t take long before Prince Allistair finds himself accosted by a bevy of enthusiastic husband-hunting princesses including the long-winded Princess Brighid and the overly amorous Princess Betina. Then there’s Princess Purdy, who has an obnoxious laugh; Princess Edina, who makes everyone shudder; and Princess Petula, who is so concerned with her posture that she refuses to sit down. Discouraged, Prince Allistair is about to give up when he accidentally encounters Anabella, an independent-minded orphan and expert archer who doesn’t need a man to protect her. Prince Allistair falls madly in love with the feisty orphan, but the only problem is that Anabella has no way to prove she is a princess. Eager to marry off their son, the King and Queen give Anabella a rather unusual test to see if she is indeed a princess. Audiences will laugh and cheer their way to a fun-filled ending.

In search of a new home, Lenora the ladybug comes across a beautiful garden. But Bennie, the bean plant, and Special, the rose, tell poor Lenora to bug off and go live in a nearby English garden. Rejected, Lenora ventures off to find a new home. But in the meantime, some rascally aphids invade the garden and begin chewing up all the plants. Can Bennie and Special, with the help of the other garden insects, convince Lenora to come back and scare away the aphids before the garden is destroyed?

Based on the books by Arnold Lobel

Adapted from the three-time TONY-nominated Broadway hit comes A Year With Frog And Toad KIDS. Based on Arnold Lobel's well-loved books and featuring a hummable score by Robert and Willie Reale, this whimsical show follows two great friends -- the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad -- through four, fun-filled seasons.

Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog And Toad KIDS tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons.
