Group Days at the Theater:

Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical

This main stage production follows the struggles of Matilda against her neglectful parents and cruel headmistress. An avid reader and brilliant young girl, Matilda dreams of a better life. With the help of her kind teacher Miss Honey, the other students in her class, and a touch of magic, Matilda takes a stand against the evil forces in her life.

Now Christopher stands beside his neighbor’s dead dog, Wellington, who has been speared with a garden fork. Christopher is determined to solve the mystery of who murdered Wellington, a decision that takes him out of his ordered life and upturns his world.

YES, Jr. February Vacation Play

Alice in Wonderland
Monday, February 18 –  Friday, February 22, 1-5pm Daily
This play is the core of the YES, Jr. experience. Over the course of 5 days, the YES, Jr. company will rehearse and perform a 30 minute version of Alice in Wonderland. The emphasis of this play will be on voice & speech, listening to your scene partner, responding honestly in the moment, and creating fun characters. There may be a few props and costumes, but the focus will be on the acting process rather than the production product. There will be a performance for a limited number of friends and family in the Schleicher Rehearsal & Education Studio at 4 PM on Friday, February 22.
