Premiere Company Musical
Rainbow Fish (Grades 2-5)
With a wonderful message of friendship and belonging, this musical features a variety of charming school and sea-creature characters who admire the famous Rainbow Fish, the most beautiful fish in all the ocean. When Rainbow Fish refuses to share his (or her!) vibrant, shimmering scales ,the whole ocean seems to turn against the vain creature. Unhappy that no one adores him anymore, the Rainbow Fish seeks out the wise Octopus, whose tentacles can also be played by separate actors. Octopus helps the young fish learn that it’s far better to be admired for being kind than for being beautiful.
Junior Company Straight Play
Passing Periods at Pomegranate Prep
This unconventional “day-in-the-life” one act offers a series of duet and trio scenes with quirky characters, quick action, and fast-paced dialogue. Add in musical-like moments — without any music — and here is a unique patchwork of brief hallway scenes that perfectly capture the hustle and bustle of an average school day.
Whether it’s misguided cheerleaders shirking responsibility in favor of flair, loveable loser athletes consoling each other in the face of mediocrity, or friendships being formed after tragedy, the character-driven scene work provides plenty of laughable moments peppered with poignant vignettes.
Senior Company Musical
Irving Berlin's Holiday Inn tells the story of Jim, who leaves the bright lights of show business behind to settle down on his farmhouse in Connecticut... but life just isn't the same without a bit of song and dance. Jim's luck takes a spectacular turn when he meets Linda, a spirited schoolteacher with talent to spare. Together they turn the farmhouse into a fabulous inn with dazzling performances to celebrate each holiday, from Thanksgiving to the Fourth of July. But when Jim's best friend Ted tries to lure Linda to Hollywood to be his new dance partner, will Jim be able to salvage his latest chance at love?
Based on the classic film, this joyous musical features thrilling dance numbers, laugh-out-loud comedy and a parade of hit Irving Berlin songs, including "Blue Skies," "Easter Parade," "Steppin' Out With My Baby," "Heat Wave," "White Christmas," "Be Careful, It's My Heart," "Cheek to Cheek," "Shaking the Blues Away" and many more!
