Spookley the Square Pumpkin musical is based upon a children’s book, The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin, by Joe Troiano. Spookley, the only square pumpkin in a patch watched over by a fatherly scarecrow, is sad and embarrassed by his squareness. Events, however, convince both Spookley and all the creatures on the pumpkin farm that the little guy has a valuable place among them. A series of inspired musical numbers enhances the strong messages about fitting in, valuing oneself, and inclusiveness.

It’s Junie B.’s first day of first grade, and a lot of things have changed. Her best friend, Lucille, doesn’t want to be her best friend anymore. So, on the bus, Junie B. makes friends with Herb, the new kid at school. Junie finds she has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses. Troubles mount with a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament, and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal.” First grade has never been more challenging. A genuinely comical musical that follows the misadventures of that brassy little diva, Junie B. Jones, and her introduction to first grade, this is a very special one-hour Theater for Young Audiences that kids (and adult kids) of all ages can enjoy.

The Cat in the Hat tells the story of Horton, an elephant who discovers a speck of dust that contains the Whos, Jojo, a Who child sent off to military school for thinking too many “thinks.” Horton faces a double challenge: not only must he protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, but he must guard an abandoned egg, left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird. Although Horton faces ridicule, danger, kidnapping and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him. Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant.
