JR: PIRATES! Theodore Thud and the Quest for Weird Beard
By Joshua Mikel
Directed by Amy Majer and Cassie Dunn
ages 9-12

A friendly game of pirates becomes all too real when overzealous Theodore accidentally falls into a giant sinkhole and wakes up to find himself amongst real high sea swashbucklers. Before getting back to the real world, he is forced on an epic journey with his companion Harriet the Ghost in a quest to find the notorious pirate Weird Beard and foil the mutinous Mr. Clunky Bones. Will Theodore be able to save Captain Cramp Hand’s ship from falling into evil clutches and return to his friends in time for ice cream?

By Peter Bloedel
Directed by Hayden Bunker and Raphi Shamas
ages 12-15

The audience is given a side-splitting lesson in what’s funny and what’s not funny. In order to prove that the Rules of Comedy work, they are hilariously inserted into one of the most popular tragedies of all time: William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The Rules of Comedy is a physical comedy “blow-out” with an interesting twist that showcases the cast’s ability to handle tragic drama, as well. Playing by the rules has never been so much fun.

Come boo, hiss and cheer on these intrepid young performers!
