Book & Music by John Maclay & Brett Ryback

Depending on who’s doing the counting, anywhere from 15% to 75% of Americans are said to have a fear of public speaking. Arthur Read knows their pain. The title character of “Arthur and Friends Make a Musical” faces a challenge that seems more daunting than all the labors of Hercules combined: Write his own story or song … and perform it in a third-grade class production … alongside his friends, who all seem more creative … in front of the entire Elwood City community.

Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!"

May 3-19, 2024

School field trip performances available May 6-May 17

Book and Lyrics by Mo Willems
Music by
Deborah Wicks La Puma

Get ready for a musical experience, ripped from the pages of Mo Willems’ beloved, award-winning, best-selling children’s books, that will leave audiences doing the “Flippy Floppy Floory” dance all night long! In Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!”, Gerald and Piggie take to the stage in a rollicking adventure that is perfect for the entire family.

An elephant named Gerald and a pig named Piggie are best, best, “bestus” (a word Gerald and Piggie made up that means “very best”) friends, but Gerald worries that something could go wrong that would end their friendship. Piggie is not worried at all. She’s even happier and more excited than usual. That’s because she and Gerald are invited to a party hosted by the Squirrelles, three singing squirrels who love to have a good time. And so begins a day when anything is possible.

The Hardy Boys in The Mystery of the Haunted House

October 13-29, 2023

by Jon Klein and Based on the Hardy Boys novel The House on the Cliff by Franklin W. Dixon

Ace amateur detectives Frank and Joe Hardy find themselves embroiled in a dangerous and perplexing caper that turns the tranquil town of Bayport upside down! This time, suspicious circumstances surround an eerie mansion on the edge of Barmet Bay, the setting for an international smuggling operation. Performed in the style of a classic 1920’s film noir setting, our production offers as many laughs as it does shivers!

Ella Enchanted

December 1-17, 2023

Book & Lyrics by Karen Zacarias
Music by Deborah Wicks la Puma
Based on the Newberry Honor book by Gail Carson Levine

Ella of Frell is given the “gift” of obedience by Lucinda, her misguided Fairy Godmother, and is forced to do anything people command her. On her adventure to rid herself of the curse, she must outwit ogres, sidestep giants, befriend a prince, survive her step-family, and ultimately find the power to be her true self. “ELLA ENCHANTED heroically speaks to the value of words…the battle between saying ‘yes’ and ‘no’ wages a magical war…delightful and utterly disarming…A story that gives every child a chance to be heroic every day.” – Broadway World

It’s Carmela’s birthday, and she’s finally old enough to accompany her big brother on his errands. On their way to the laundromat, past fields of what her Mamí calls “flores de cempazuchitl”, Carmela finds a puffy white dandelion to blow, but her brother asks “Did you even make a wish?” The Newbery award-winning team behind Last Stop on Market Street portrays Carmela’s migrant community as a vibrant place of possibility. Full of touching and funny fantasies, Carmela must decide what her deepest wish is and she must do it before her birthday is over.
