The Stage School brings one of the true classics of children’s literature to life in this original musical adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s beloved story. After Max’s mother sends him to bed without supper, Max’s room transforms into a moonlit forest surrounded by a vast ocean. He sails to the land of the Wild Things, where he quickly becomes their leader. However, Max soon finds that being king is not easy, and learns a valuable lesson about the importance of home and family.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast JR. is a fantastic adaptation of the story of transformation and tolerance. The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
This delightful new musical based on the popular children’s book series by James Dean and Eric Lit-win brings Pete the Cat and his friends to the stage to put on a show! No matter what challenges may occur, Pete and his friends stay true to their message of positive thinking and remind us to “…keep walking along and singing your song, because it’s all good…”
Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film and fantastic Broadway musical.

Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
