The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! (non-musical)  They’re baaack!   When the 6 Herdman kids, considered the terror of teachers, parents, and students, show up at the auditions and manage to snatch the major roles in the pageant, everyone is convinced that this Christmas pageant, if it is presented at all, will be “the worst Christmas pageant ever.”  As the spirit of the season comes alive in the Herdmans the audience learns that things are not always what they seem and all discover that there are still lessons in kindness, tolerance, and humanity to be learned from the story of the stable in Bethlehem.

The Diary of Anne Frank
Jan. 29-Feb. 7, 2016 @ Paramount Theatre
Season Tickets: $12
Non-musical Play

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” This is a new adaptation for a new generation.

Recommended for ages 10+ due to dramatic content

Musical

This charming tale based on the classic book by Richard and Florence Atwater touches the heart – with lots of laughs along the way! It is hard enough for Mr. Popper, a simple painter, to support himself and his family. The addition of twelve penguins makes it impossible to make both ends meet – until Mr. Popper has a splendid idea. He will turn the talented penguins into a traveling vaudeville act! And that’s exactly what he does. The entire family will delight in the adventures of Mr. Popper and his “performing” feathered friends.  

Recommended for all ages.

Unfolding through the fiery rhythms of Harlem and Tin Pan Alley, and the vibrant klezmer of the Lower East Side, this vivid and unforgettable Tony-winning score bursts onto the stage “on the wheels of a dream” in what will be an epic production from the director of GREAT’s Les Misérable.
