Charlotte's Web: This classic story about a pig, his girl, and his special spider friend has been delighting audiences for years. When Wilber the pig goes to the State Fair, he gets more than he bargained for! Charlotte the spider spins words in her webs to help spare Wilbur's life, but what will it cost her in the end? Geared to elementary and middle school children, please join us for this treasured tale.

Rapunzel: Rapunzel, Rupunzel, let down your hair! Trapped in a tower by her witch mother, Rapunzel longs for the day when she can get out and meet the people of the village. A Prince and his side kick conspire to untangle the mess and rescue the damsel in distress. This musical comedy is great for the entire family.

Alexander and the Horrible, Terrible, No Good, Very Bad, Day: Nothing is going right for Alexander today, not school, not family, not his best friend, not anything. Sometimes it's just hard being a kid and getting through the day. And we all have bad days... A fast moving musical, this show is geared toward elementary and middle school children.

Rachel the Clever!: A new play collaboration with the Center for Jewish Education! Pumpkin Theatre has asked Moses Goldberg (former Artistic Director of Stage One! in KY) to adapt a BRAND NEW PLAY based on a Jewish folk tale, Rachel the Clever. Rachel solves riddles to make her small village (and maybe herself) a little wiser. For more information on CJE visit their website by clicking here.

You're a Good Man Charlie Brown: This musical review is a nostalgic show perfect to share with the next generation of Snoopy lovers. Will Charlie Brown ever meet the red-headed girl? Can he win just ONE baseball game? Will Lucy's advice ever cost more than a nickel? Sally and her philosophy, Schroeder and his love for Beethoven, Linus and his blanket; this show is timeless and ageless. Happiness is...sharing an afternoon with the family and some fun, fun theater.
