Apple Kingdom by Eric Pettifor, Arrangements by Charlotte Loeppky
A fantasy/musical, this fairy-tale tells the story of a young king whose kingdom was so small he was mocked by the other kings of the world. In exchange for power he promises the witch his first born daughter on her 16th birthday. But though the witch delivers on her promise, when the princess nears her 16th birthday, the king regrets the deal he made so many years ago. Can he save his daughter? Can the prince who woos his daughter help? Might help come from an unexpected quarter, the familiar of the witch, a giant, bipedal talking Lizard?
Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare
A classic tale with 1970’s flare. Music, movement, and, of course, incense, flowered wreaths, and peace signs. "Come and see, you who are negligent, Montagues and Capulets ... One lot already grieving, the other in fear."
The play breathes new life into the diary entries of this extraordinary girl, inviting the audience to share in this compelling and surprisingly relatable journey. Within the annex in which she hid, Anne Frank comes of age: she plays, cries, laughs, and falls in love for the first time. When you witness the account, you will see that Anne's faith is more relevant today as when it was first published..."in spite of everything...people are truly good at heart".
