A Little House Christmas
by James Devita Based on the Books by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Saturdays and Sundays Dec. 2-Dec. 17 at 3pm TICKETS
Eight days before Christmas, the Ingalls (Pa, Ma, Mary and Laura) have invited some folks to dinner to celebrate completion of their new home. The guests include Laura's nemesis, the stuck-up Nellie Oleson and her mother Mrs. Oleson; the rambunctious mountain man Edwards); two of the Ingalls girls' cousins, Nick and Peter; and Pa's younger brother George, who ran away at 14 to join the Army as a drummer boy in the Civil War. George is haunted by the memories.The gathering includes one of Pa's animated stories of his childhood and some do-si-do-ing as the group does some square dancing. However, a freakishly severe early winter thunderstorm brings the celebration to an end as the downpour causes the creek to rapidly rise and wash out the bridge just after the Ingalls' guests get across it. Although everyone is safe, the Ingalls family is now stranded.Not only can't Pa get to town for needed supplies, Mary and Laura fear the swollen creek will make it impossible for Santa Claus to get to them with their Christmas gifts. When the girls get depressed about the very non-merry Christmas circumstances, Ma steps in to deliver a lesson. "We're the only ones who can make it feel like Christmas," Ma says, inspiring Mary and Laura to make the best of the situation, which in the end turns out to be a truly memorable Christmas.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Book and Lyrics by Judith Viorst. Music by Shelly Markham
Saturdays March 24 - April 28 at 3pm TICKETS
Alexander is having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day. To be quite honest, it's a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. But then, everybody has bad days, sometimes. In this delightful adaptation of her popular book, Judith Viorst sets Alexander's rather trying life to music and brings to the stage one of America's feistiest characters. Not only does Alexander wake up with gum in his hair, but his mother forgets to pack him dessert, and his best friend decides he's not his best friend anymore. And if that's not bad enough, Alexander's brothers don't have any cavities but—he does. And just when it can't get any worse, there are lima beans for supper and —yuck!—kissing on TV. It is enough to make anyone want to go to Australia. Alexander's struggles with life's daily dramas will not only entertain but educate young audiences as they identify with Alexander and the obstacles he encounters, encouraging them to share their feelings and to realize that bad days happen—even in Australia.
