WEEK 1: July 15th - 19th, 2019 - DR. DOLITTLE

Full day camp is from 9am - 2:30pm!

Dr. John Dolittle lives in a small English village where he specializes in caring for and verbally communicating with animals. When Dr. Dolittle is unjustly sent to an insane asylum for freeing a lovesick seal from captivity, his animals and two closest human friends, Matthew Mugg and Tommy Stubbins, liberate him. Afterward, they join Emma Fairfax and set out by boat to find a famed and elusive creature: the Great Pink Sea Snail.

WEEK 2: July 22nd - 26th, 2019 MARY POPPINS

Full day camp is from 9am - 2:30pm!

We are delighted to sing the songs and tell the tale of this beloved classic! In Edwardian London's Cherry Tree Lane, yet another nanny resigns from keeping an eye on Mr Banks' boisterous children, Jane and Michael. But then, as if by magic, a new governess--the enchanting, Mary Poppins--lands on their doorstep to take control of the situation, as thrilling adventures along with the amazing chimney sweep, Bert, pave the way for a wonderful transformation. Will the charming Miss Poppins turn chaos into order?

WEEK 3: July 29th - Aug 2nd, 2019 THE 5000 FINGERS OF DR. T

Full day camp is from 9am - 2:30pm!

We are thrilled to create our own stage adaptation of The 5000 Fingers of Dr T! This is an interesting one, as it is based on the ONLY feature film Dr. Seuss ever created! When it came out in 1953 it was a big flop but now it has become a cult classic among some circles and we think the story is so fun and perfect for a handmade theatre production! The story is about a boy who detests his piano lessons and one day he falls asleep while practicing and travels to an imaginary world where him and 500 other children are sent to Dr Terwilliker’s Piano Institute to play a crazy piano built for 5000 fingers 25 hours a day and forever!! Luckily it’s only a dream, or rather a nightmare! But we think this absurd surrealist story (Dr. Seuss style) is going to be so fun to transform and adapt for the stage this summer! Are you ready to build a piano for 5000 fingers?

WEEK 4:  Aug 5th - 9th, 2019 THE LAST UNICORN

Full day camp is from 9am - 2:30pm!

We are delighted to bring the magic and music of this 1982 animation and novel The Last Unicorn written by Peter S. Beagle, to the stage this summer!. It tells the story of a Unicorn who upon learning that she is the last of her species in the world, goes on a quest to find out what has happened to the others of her kind. It is a story filled with adventure and magic! The New York Times said of the animation that “no one of any age will be immune to the sentiment of the film's final moments, which really are unexpectedly touching and memorable” We couldn’t agree more and we can’t wait to make some unforgettable moments with you all in the The Last Unicorn!
