When the famous J Prince announces auditions for his hip-hop Hollywood jam, Cinderella goes in disguise trying to score the biggest gig in the land. Come see an urban twist on the classic Cinderella fairy tale.
Note: This show is recommended for ages five and up.
In Luzia, a waking dream transports audiences to an imaginary Mexico. They experience a wondrous world that invites them, enveloped in light and nurtured by rain, to explore their senses. Inspired by the cultural richness of Mexico, Cirque du Soleil's Luzia features original music by Canadian composer Simon Carpentier. The show's album takes Carpentier's music (written for a live acoustic setting) and passes it through the filter of the electro-pop of Nortec Collective's Bostich + Fussible with an infusion of brassy Mexican and Latin American sounds.
Define Yourself 2017 is Definition Dance Academy's annual dance recital. Come see amazing young artists (ages 2 to 18) perform!
Running a farm is hard work, especially with cows that type, hens on strike, and a duck that's always causing trouble. So Farmer Brown takes off on a well-deserved vacation, leaving his brother Bob, an accountant from the city, in charge. Soon it's no work and all play (and cake, pizza, movies, and bubble baths) as the animals run wild, taking advantage of Bob's lack of experience. Will the animals come clean about their devious tricks, or is there more to Brother Bob than meets the eye? Take a break from the grind with the gang from Farmer Brown's farm with this hit musical adaptation of the 2002 New York Times bestselling book.
A wild and wacky adventure awaits Alex the Lion, Marty the Zebra, Gloria the Hippo, Melman the Giraffe, and those pesky, plotting penguins as they stage a jailbreak from New York's Central Park Zoo. After busting out of their home and landing on the faraway island of Madagascar, these furry friends encounter the madcap antics of the outrageous lemur King Julian and his animal subjects in a musical celebration of friendship.
Geppetto the toy maker wishes on a star that his puppet could be a real boy, to have a son of his own. The Blue Fairy brings the puppet to life and names him Pinocchio but it's his job to become a real boy by learning to tell the truth and obeying his father. With many temptations along the way, will Pinocchio ever get to be a real boy?
Recommended for grades 1-5.
