Amazing little gem! The shows are wonderfully imagined and written. Cast does a great job of getting kids involved and providing laughs and a twist on classic tales. We have seen three shows here so far and have loved every one. Well worth the drive to check out. Great family show that kids and Adults will both enjoy.

After following the White Rabbit into Wonderland, Alice is on a journey to find the Queen’s palace and her way home. But, Wonderland is not any ordinary place, and Alice meets all sorts of silly characters who seem to always have a problem that needs solved. With the White Rabbit by her side, as well as the “imaginations” in the audience, Alice can surely make it to the Queen’s party on time!

While on an expedition in Africa, Jane and her team of scientists meet a man who has been raised among the animals of the jungle. Though Tarzan is eager to learn from Jane, his parents, Tublat and Kala, feel that his true home is with them, and they are worried Jane may take him away to meet his other family. With some not so honest friends on her expedition, Jane realizes she has much to accomplish to keep Tarzan and his jungle family safe. This interactive, musical adaptation is based on the “Tarzan” book series written by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

When a large, stuffed bunny is given to Jamie for the holidays, it finds it’s new home with all the other toys a bit confusing, at first.  Wishing to be “real,” the rabbit does everything it can to win Jamie’s affections and be the most-favorite toy in the room.  In time, Jamie does grow to love the toy, and the Velveteen Rabbit is the happiest it could possibly be.  But, a sad day comes when the rabbit is no longer able to stay with the rest of the toys, and it learns a lesson on what being “Real” means:  understanding that love can sometimes come with a little pain or sadness . . .  

Merlyn has his hands full teaching young Wart what it is like to be a knight. Wart, on the other hand, is curious as to why his lessons seem to involve animals, magic, and strange adventures through the Forest Savauge. Based from the T.H. White story, the audience will find themselves part of all of Wart’s lessons, from learning from a school of fish to helping teach a grumpy tree that everyone is equal in the forest. Come join Wart, but watch out for the Questing Beast!

Princess & the Pea

When a small kingdom finds themselves in need of a new ruler, it is determined that only a true royal person can lead everyone. But, the only test to find royalty is the “sleeping pea” test. As princess after princess fails to pass, everyone becomes worried that a new ruler will ever be found. But, sometimes, a leader is in the place you least expect! Based on the classic “Princess and the Pea” fairy tale, this original musical will feature special character appearances, comedy for all who participate, and traditional Gemini interactive fun!
