The Princess and the Pea

On stage March 20 to March 29, 2020

The Princess and the Pea play poster

A whimsical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale by Paul Lavrakus.

The Princess and the Pea features Princess Astrid as she has been lured from her home by Gustav the Troll as a prospective bride for the bookish Prince Eric. Although this feisty princess has no interest in either marriage or princes, she spiritedly takes a series of tests to prove that she is "a real princess." Despite the plotting of the oily courtier, Osric, Astrid and Eric are drawn to each other out of respect for the other's stubborn individualism. However, before there may be a proper happy ending, Astrid must pass a final test.

This theatrical version of the beloved tale The Princess and the Pea is suitable for young and old alike.

High Fidelity play poster

A contemporary musical based on the film and book by David Lindsay-Abaire, lyrics by Amanda Green, and music by Tom Kitt.

When record store owner Rob finds himself unexpectedly dumped, his life takes a music-filled turn toward the introspective. Based on the popular novel by Nick Hornby, High Fidelity follows Rob as he struggles to discover how his relationship went awry, and strives to change his life in order to win back his sweetheart Laura. With memorable characters and a rock-and-roll score, this homage to music geek culture explores love, heartbreak, and the power of the perfect soundtrack.

High Fidelity contains profanity that may not be suitable for children under the age of 14.
