The Frog Prince

May 6, 2017 – May 21, 2017

Saturdays and Sundays 1:00 & 3:30

Princess Luana plays with her golden ball near a well in the deep forest. There she meets the Hag, whose hand is stuck in a tree. Although she tries, Luana is unable to help her. Pantera, a wounded, adolescent panther, runs in, begging for her mother’s (the Hag’s) help. Prince Erik has wounded her and pursues her. After the prince threatens to throw Luana down the well if she doesn’t tell him which way Pantera ran, Luana points to the Hag. Erik attempts to bargain with her, but he refuses to help her or to stop pursuing the magical Pantera. The Hag pulls her own hand from the tree, drops her outer robe revealing a much younger witch, and decides Erik’s fate. She turns him into a frog and casts him down the well saying the only way he could become a man again is by successfully courting Princess Luana. A couple of years later, Luana again plays with her golden ball in the deep forest. The Hag appears and seems to bless the ball and Luana, who then accidentally throws her ball down the well. Erik, as a frog, hears her cries and offers to fetch the ball if she promises to let him eat from her bowl, drink from her cup, and be his companion for an evening. She agrees, he retrieves the ball, and she runs off without him. That evening, at her birthday celebration, Erik shows up and hilarious events follow as a now-humbled Frog Prince tries to woo the princess.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

ONE WEEKEND ONLY!

 Friday 7:00,  Saturday 2:00 & 7:00, Sunday 2:30

From the hilarious mischief of the elf Puck to the rough humor of the self-centered Bottom and his fellow players, from the palace of Theseus in Athens to the magic wood where fairies play, Shakespeare’s marvelous “A Midsummer Night’s Dream “is a play of enchantment and an insightful portrait of the predicaments of love. Staying true to Shakespeare’s story, this is an approachable and enjoyable for children and adults of all ages.

Saturdays and Sundays 1:00 & 3:30

In this merry play of medieval England, Robert Fitzooth of Locksley (aka Robin Hood) earns the displeasure of the sheriff of Nottingham by defending his home from unlawful seizure in the king’s absence. Declared an outlaw, Robin gathers a few loyal friends about him and retires to Sherwood Forest, where he trains his men to play pranks on the rich, usurping officials and wins fame by his prowess as an archer. In an effort to capture him, the sheriff declares a shooting match at the Nottingham Fair. Robin and his men, taking the precaution to wear disguises, enter the town long enough for Robin to win the golden arrow. They escape with difficulty, pursued by the sheriff and his party. In the ensuing duel between Robin and the sheriff, it appears that Robin has lost, and his men are in despair at the tragedy when the tide suddenly turns.
