Fancy Nancy: The Musical

Based on the popular Fancy Nancy books
Book & Lyrics by Susan DiLallo
Music & Lyrics by Danny Abosch
Written by Jane O'Connor

September 18 - October 25, 2015
Take a trip to the très irresistible world of the fanciest, funniest kid to ever take the stage. Nancy's refined etiquette is not enough to get her the lead role in the upcoming school play. C'est la vie! She must summon the strength to forge ahead when a sudden turn of events casts her best friend as the lead. Every kid can relate to Nancy, with her boisterous attitude and tangled up feelings... Grown-ups will be equally dazzled while noting the (wink, wink) heartwarming lessons that we never outgrow. The Mermaid Ballet recital, complete with a scene-stealing dancing shark, will have your spirit dancing and your children hysterically happy.

Recommended for ages 5 and up

Kathy Burks Theatre of Puppetry Arts'

Hansel and Gretel

Adapted from the Brothers Grimm with Book, Original Songs & Lyrics by B. Wolf

March 4 - April 3, 2016
You don't always need a prince and princess for your heroes to live happily ever after. Two children in search of food for their hungry family get lost in an enchanted forest. They must depend on all their powers of imagination to save them from the crafty, mysterious old woman in the candy house and (in this less "grim" version) lead them back to the loving arms of their parents. The familiar, melodic music of Engelbert Humperdinck brings an inventive theatricality to the retelling of this beloved fairy tale adventure. HANSEL AND GRETEL brings another feast for the eyes and ears to the stage from Kathy Burks' Master Puppeteers.

Adapted by Dwayne Hartford

March 18 - April 10, 2016
The award-winning author of Because of Winn-Dixie and The National Ambassador for Young People's Literature launches the extraordinary pilgrimage of Edward, a beautiful, much-loved toy rabbit who loves only himself. When he is ripped from the arms of his doting young owner and lost, Edward finds that his breakable heart can learn to love, lose, and love again. This stunning, highly theatrical play became an immediate must-see hit following its premiere and is sure to go down in history as a family classic with your family being among its first audiences. Trust us, you'll be sorry if you miss this one.

DCT's National Touring Production

(Big Friendly Giant)

Adapted by David Wood

April 29 - May 22, 2016
In the much beloved tradition of Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), we join two misfits on an unforgettable odyssey. For a young orphan "human bean", the sight of a giant outside her window is terrifying, and she fears for her life when he whisks her away to an enchanted land. This Big Friendly Giant is not like other giants, however. The job of this larger-than-life vegetarian is to blow magical dreams into children's bedrooms, and together they embark on a quest to save England from the "gizzard-gulping" giants who don't have the BFG's tender heart. The cheeky BFG ultimately shows that heroes can come in all sizes. See the play that inspired the new Steven Spielberg movie coming out July 2016.

Pink-A-Boo! DCT audiences were tickled...that's right - PINK the last time PINKALICIOUS was on our stage, so we're bringing her back in this exhilarating musical! When Pinkalicious doesn't heed her parents' warnings and indulges in too many pink goodies, she has to make some healthy choices to fight off a bad case of Pinkititis. Pinkalicious will finally eat a little green, her little brother will no longer be blue, and all kids will learn to show their true colors! The popular book pops off the stage in this high-energy musical treat that kids will love even more than pink cupcakes!

BALLOONACY had people expressing all kinds of emotion in 2015! Now, we're bringing it back so many can see it again and others can experience it for the first time. Audiences were truly smitten with Karl Schaeffer's lonely old birthday boy and the unlikely friend he makes in a wandering red balloon. This immersive, non-verbal play invites the audience to direct the action making no two shows ever alike. You'll be in awe of your child's (and your own) laughter and reaction to the adventure between the old man and the balloon. Squirmy toddlers, their parents, and grandparents are invited to experience what could be the most valuable hour of the year!

Recommended for ages 2 and up
