What the Good Woman Does Is Always Right

It leads to a result only her equally eccentric husband could appreciate! Based on the story by Hans Christian Anderson. June 25-29, August 6-10, August 13


A mom with a love of asparagus tangles with a scheming witch…  and daughter Rapunzel pays the price. Will Rapunzel’s unusual hairdo help her out of her predicament? Will Prince Rich help, too? It’s a hair-raising tale, that’s for sure! Based on the story by the Brothers Grimm. June 4-8, July 2-6, August 16 & 17

Nitwits from Neptune

A space ship takes off on a journey through the universe. Who’s aboard?  Captain Nebbish, Lieutenant Overunder, Goniff and Dr. Yipes – the most hopeless, hapless crew to ever blast-off. Their mission is beset with silly disasters. And a Saturnian stowaway is one of them! June 11-15, July 16-20, August 15

The Brave Little Tailor

A guy with a funny name kills seven flies in one blow – and winds up with a reputation for courage that comes in handy for an unhappy princess.
