The Neverending Story A Christmas Carol
25th Anniversary
Aesop's Foibles The Twelve Dancing Princesses
Directed by Lucas Kiker Directed by Elaine Hubbard Directed by Sandra Federico Directed by Sara Sheehan
Told with all the thrills of a classic adventure, the story begins with Bastian, a lonely boy, who stumbles into a curious bookshop where he discovers a curious book—The Neverending Story. Bastian hides in the attic of his school and begins to read, and a huge adventure surges into life on stage with many fantastical characters. Even Bastian himself is drawn into the action of this story with a triumphant and moving conclusion. Adapted by David S. Craig. Based upon the novel by Michael Ende. In this musical retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic novel, you will travel with Scrooge as he visits his past, present, and future on Christmas Eve. This production has become a family tradition for many in the Tennessee Valley for the past 25 years. Aesop’s fables have never been presented in a more hilarious and clever format, sure to entertain audiences of all ages. The resentful Fox, the egomaniac Hare, the sluggish Tortoise, the zen-like Grasshopper and many more characters from Aesop’s stories come alive onstage. Jam-packed with clever dialogue, mad-cap action and modern, uproarious twists, this play retells the fables like you’ve never quite heard them before and offers a heart-warming surprise ending with a meaningful moral! By Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus. Conditions in his castle have grown lax and King Oakley devises a strict regimen for his daughters that no longer lets them leave the castle grounds. In an effort to break from these harsh rules, the princesses fall prey to the desires of the King’s faithful servant. Thrown in the mix is a gardener and a magical nanny, Fern. Castle-on-Whisperwood-Lake is turned into a place of longing and wishes for the princesses as they journey to the Land of the Muses where they hope to have their dreams come true. By Claudia Haas.
