CAPTAIN LOUIE (October 13, 20, 27, November 3, 10, & 17, 2012)  Young Louie takes an imaginary journey full of tricks and treats on Halloween night.  This new musical, by WICKED composer Stephen Schwartz, is all about the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones.  Based on the book THE TRIP by Ezra Jack Keats.
A FAIRY TALE CHRISTMAS (November 24, December 1, 8, 15, 17, 22, 2012)  It’s the most wonderful time of the year in the land of Happily Every After as princes, princesses, and fairy tale creatures prepare for the Crystal Christmas Ball.  Experience a thrilling adventure and the magic of the holidays through the eyes of your favorite fairy tale characters.
A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD (February 23, March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, 2013)  Arnold Lobel’s beloved characters hop from the page to the stage in this Tony Award-nominated musical!  Join two great friends, the cheerful and popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad, on their journey through four fun-filled seasons.
AWESOME ALLIE: FIRST KID ASTRONAUT (May 25, June 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, 2012) Yesterday Allie was just a normal kid, but today she’s headed into outer space!  Allie’s on a mission across the solar system to save Earth, and maybe learn some things about science along the way.  Grab your space suit and get ready for an adventure that’s out of this world!
