Bunnicula
Director: Samuel Pettit
Music Director: Julia Thornton

A dancing cat, a howling dog, and a vampire bunny. The perfect pet combination for any family. It’s a dark and stormy night and Chester (the family cat) and Harold (the family dog) sit waiting for their owners to return home from the movies. Chester and Harold are more than just pets, they’re good friends too. When the Monroes finally get home, they come bearing a surprise: they’ve found a bunny in the movie theater. But this is no ordinary rabbit… this is the extraordinary Bunnicula. When the family’s produce starts losing its juice, Chester thinks he knows what’s causing the fantastic phenomenon. Bunnicula is a vampire! Or maybe Chester’s imagination is getting the better of him. Singing and dancing their way through this hilarious mystery, the furry friends find room in their hearts, and in their home, for one very unique bunny.

Little Red Riding Hood
Director: Alicia Mendez

Little Red Riding Hood lives on the outskirts of the woods with her protective Mother. She’s a good girl, but she doesn’t always take her Mother’s instructions to heart. The only people she sees with any regularity are her mother and the Huntsman. She often daydreams of curious things, but with no playmates she has to be satisfied with her closest companions — the trees. When Grandma comes for a visit, everyone is excited because Grandma is so much fun to be with... and Grandma thinks Little Red is old enough now to visit her on the other side of the forest alone. One day Grandma takes ill, and Mother reluctantly allows Red to carry a basket of goodies to Grandma’s house. Mother warns Red not to talk with strangers on the way, and she heads off down the path. As she enters the woods she meets up with a Wolf. He is down on his luck, and makes it his mission to discover where the little girl is going and what’s in the basket.

March 21 – April 6, 2014

Charlotte’s Web was named "the best American children's book of the past two hundred years," by The Children’s Literature Association. Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman -- she will create a "miracle." Spinning the words "Some Pig" in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution that not only makes Wilbur a prize pig, but also ensures his place on the farm forever. This treasured tale, featuring madcap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love, and the true meaning of friendship.

Rapunzel
Director: Pat Haines-Ainsworth

Martin and Etta Sue are a poor and childless peasant couple living beside the tower of a witch named Miranda. As the years go by the couple makes an unfortunate bargain with Miranda when they think it may be their last chance to have a baby. Miranda will raise the little girl as her own in the isolated tower. As Rapunzel grows, her only contact with the world outside is through her “Witch-mother” who gains access to the tower by climbing Rapunzel’s magnificent golden braids. One day a passing Prince hears Rapunzel’s song and climbs her braids himself. After several of these secret visits, they fall in love. When Miranda learns of this, she cuts off Rapunzel’s golden hair and casts her out. When the Prince returns, the Witch has taken Rapunzel’s place, and the Prince is blinded in his escape. Wandering the countryside, they meet and Rapunzel’s tears fall into her Prince’s eyes, restoring his sight. She is reunited with her real parents and all live happily ever after.
