Join us! We've got magic to do! PIPPIN is the story of a young man's quest to find purpose in his life – his corner of the sky.

FEBRUARY 23-25
A tale (tail?) of adventure and friendship. A sweet mole, a sensible rat, a curmudgeonly badger, an eccentric toad, plus countless rabbits, otters, and let’s not forget the rascally weasels! A true classic of children’s literature that will delight the entire family.

MAY 11-13
Roald Dahl’s beloved story has been given new life with music composed by Pasek & Paul, the songwriting team that won an Oscar for creating La La Land and a Tony for Dear Evan Hansen. A child, some insect friends, an oversized piece of fruit, and the adventure of a lifetime awaits!

JULY 5-8
A song cycle about moments of decision in our lives, this show will move you. Composer Jason Robert Brown frees himself from the structure of traditional Scene-Scene-Song musicals by creating a series of songs that stand alone as complete mini one-act plays. Journey from the deck of a Spanish sailing ship in 1492 to the North Pole and hear from a disgruntled Mrs. Claus. Stories and music that you’ll never forget.

AUGUST 10-12
Get ready to rock! Combine a hit comedy film with some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hottest work in years, and you’ll see why this show is currently playing to sold-out audiences on Broadway! But wait – if it’s on Broadway now, how can R2P bring it to the stage? Turns out, that because this show is all about young people doing their thing (including playing in the band live on stage as part of the show), they’re making it available exclusively to youth companies like us! We bring you the regional premiere of – SCHOOL OF ROCK!

Thank you!

Thank you to our generous, loving community for supporting us through TEN SEASONS! Here's to many more!
