By Barbara Robinson

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever

December 10-18, 2011

 Produced by Paul Carver, Jaime Moritz

Directed by Ana Kalet

Musically Directed by  Francois Suhr

In this hilarious holiday story, the two directors of the Christmas pageant at the local church are struggling with all the little complications of this annual production. But, this year, they have a new, and much bigger problem—finding parts in the pageant for the horrible Herdman kids—possibly the most creatively maniacal and totally dreadful group of siblings in history. These kids are a pack of lying, stealing, cussing, cigar smoking terrors…the boys, too! The last place anyone expected to see them was in church. But you will want to see them. And you won’t want to miss the mayhem—and the fun!—for there will be no silent night when the uncontrollable, unholy Herdmans drop like a ton of yule logs on the once peaceful story of Christmas!

The Pied Piper

Directed by  Annette Fielder and Jeff Dworkin

Musical Direction by Ruslan Odintsov

Meet B. Rutherford Rodent, the Mayor of the Mice in the town of Hamelin, for he has a musical tale to tell. The people of Hamelin are desperate. The cheese in town has been slowly disappearing. This might not seem so important, until we hear that their famous cheese is Hamelin’s main export and source of income. Losing it will mean bankruptcy for the entire town! In this fanciful musical adaptation of The Pied Piper, the people of Hamelin, with the help of their neighbors in Bremen, must capitalize on their strengths and overcome their weaknesses to solve the mystery, recover the cheese and save the town. We guarantee you won’t leave the theatre feeling bleu.

HOW I BECAME A PIRATE” received its world premiere at First Stage Children’s Theatre, Milwaukee , WI.

AARRRRGH! Who wouldn’t want to be a pirate!? Imagine Jeremy Jacob’s surprise when, sand shovel in hand, he’s recruited on the beach by Captain Braid and his motley crew to be their new treasure-burying digger. At first, pirate life is great fun: swabbing decks, counting ducats, singing shanties. But when Jeremy gets no bedtime story, no tucking in, he begins to have his doubts. Finally, Jeremy makes a novel, pirate-pleasing suggestion which neatly solves the Captain’s latest dilemma, leading to a swashbucklingly happy ending…and, to the realization that life’s richest treasures might not be under a big X on a map.
