Performing Arts for Children and Teens
A fun-filled, foot stomping musical taken directly from the comic strip. It is a satisfying mixture of hillbilly nonsense and sharp, critical humor that appeals to the sophisticated theatregoer as well as the child within us all. The curtain opens on “A Typical Day” in Dogpatch, U.S.A. where the motley and lovable characters who inhabit this burgh introduce themselves to the audience. It’s about to be “Sadie Hawkins” Day and Daisy Mae is looking for L’il Abner to take her to the dance. Check out all the escapades and fun in this great musical for all ages.

Peter and the Starcatcher
Peter and the Starcatcher provides a humorous and fantastical backstory for the beloved character of Peter Pan and his arch-nemesis Captain Hook. In this wickedly imaginative play, we meet a poor orphaned child on the high seas simply called Boy because, in the absence of a mother and a father, he was never given a name. His sad and lonely world is turned upside down when he meets Molly. The daughter of famous Starcatcher Lord Astor, our heroine is on a mission to save the world and protect a treasure trunk filled with magical star stuff from getting into the hands of evil and greedy pirate Black Stache. As they travel aboard the Neverland ship headed for a faraway land, Molly and Boy learn about love, friendship and forge an unbreakable bond.
