Swimmy, Theatre for the Very Young – Aug 4 - 19, 2017

Journey with us to the depths of the ocean as our Theatre for the Very Young series continues this season with the subtly beautiful tale of Swimmy, based on the Caldecott Honor book by Leo Lionni. Being a different color doesn’t stop Swimmy from teaching his fellow fish to think “outside the box.” His uniqueness is just the thing to inspire his school to work together to ward off impending danger. Swimmy may also just inspire our youngest audiences to join in this imaginative under water adventure.

“… a fun night of quick-paced theatrical entertainment.” (Katherine Waddell, Broadway World Review)

Joseph is an ageless tale set to a bold new beat in Director/Choreographer Michael Matthew Ferrell’s staging. Reimagined to reflect Ferrell’s lyrical and athletic styles, this story about overcoming odds and fulfilling one’s destiny will captivate contemporary audiences of all ages. Featuring one of Andrew Lloyd Weber’s catchiest scores in a myriad of musical styles, Joseph tells the tale of a young dreamer haunted by prophetic visions that he will one day rule over his eleven jealous brothers.  Fueled by animosity, his brothers sell Joseph into slavery in dangerous and unfamiliar Egypt, where he must find his own way and face the greatest trials of his life.

"Copulation of serpents determined my destiny. Boyish, unmanly, I ventured, adventured my way into forests primeval; glanced down in the dirt, in the dirt-trodden path, where I witnessed the scaly sinews of snakes intertwining in love..."

from "Serpentine"

A new expressionistic verse tragedy, in which a young boy slaughters a pair of copulating snakes, and is cursed to spend his life as a double-gendered voyeur -- a prophet, both male and female, whose visions of the future are ridiculed by their subjects.
