ALL SHOOK UP
Book by Joe Dipietro
Inspired by and featuring the songs of ELVIS PRESLEY
In a sleepy mid-western town, the roar of a motorcycle, driven by a hip-swiveling, guitar-playing young man, breaks the silence. Will the renegade bring spirit and life to this quite little town? Will the mayor maintain her strict rules no music, no dancing! Inspired by and featuring the songs of Elvis Presley, this show will have you tapping your toes to such classics as Heartbreak Hotel, Jailhouse Rock and Don't be Cruel just to name a few.
The Jungle Book
Book by Joseph Robinette. Based on the book by Rudyard Kipling.
One of literature's most enduring classics is brought vividly to the stage in this exciting adventure of Mowgli, the Indian boy, raised by caring wolves, befriended by Bagheera, the Panther, and Baloo, the Bear, and threatened by Shere Kahn, the evil tiger. Also present are an array of other jungle creatures who inhabit this action-filled play. Interspersed with the Mowgli tale is the equally intriguing story of a young Rudyard Kipling, who is sent from his home in Bombay to a British boarding school where he encounters his own "jungle," including people—both good and otherwise—who parallel many of the animal characters he created. Filled with excitement and humor, the play highlights the struggle of good versus evil, the worth of friendship, and the importance of loyalty and other values required for surviving the "law of the jungle." While the very young audiences will delight in the portrayal of the animals and the fast paced action, older children will be fascinated by the character relations and the story itself, as well as the unique introduction to the author.
The Cemetery Club
By Ivan Menchell
Three Jewish widows meet once a month for tea before going to visit their husbands’ graves. Ida is sweet tempered and ready to begin a new life; Lucille is a feisty embodiment of the girl who just wants to have fun; and Doris is priggish and judgmental, particularly when Sam the butcher enters the scene. He meets the widows while visiting his wife’s grave. Doris and Lucille squash the budding romance between Sam and Ida. They are guilt-stricken when this nearly breaks Ida’s heart.
