Our summer production for the Rising Stars this year is Disney’s Aladdin JR. which is based on the 1992 Academy-Award®-winning film and the 2014 hit Broadway show about the “diamond in the rough” street rat who learns that his true worth lies deep within. The story you know and love has been given the royal treatment! Aladdin and his three friends, Babkak, Omar, and Kassim, are down on their luck until Aladdin discovers a magic lamp and the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes. Wanting to earn the respect of the princess, Jasmine, Aladdin embarks on an adventure that will test his will and his moral character. Please join us in enjoying the talents of these young performers, ages 5 through 8th grade.

* This play will include our second offering of a sensory-friendly play, with our Saturday 3pm performance of Aladdin, Jr. This performance is designed to create a more comfortable experience for those with sensitivity to sensory input and their families. Please feel free to bring comforting objects and noise-reducing headphones. We will also have a sign language interpreter. Click HERE  for more information on our sensory-friendly performances and a link to a social story to share with your child. 

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com.

Our first Straight to the Stars production will be Cheaper by the Dozen, which is based on the true story of the Gilbreth family. The Gilbreth’s inventor father, who is well-known for bringing better efficiency to factories, keeps his family of twelve children running just as efficiently and the results of being part of the grand experiment are terribly embarrassing, funny and—it must be admitted—extremely effective! To oldest daughter Anne, the chief effect seems to be that of making the children seem ridiculous to everyone else at school—especially to the boys! Dad pushes ahead with better organization for his large and delightful family, such as putting up a chart for the children to initial after completing each household task, using a rung as an imaginary bathtub to demonstrate how to take a really efficient bath and appointing a utilities officer to levy fines on wasters of electricity. While the situations are often uproarious, there's a serious reason that Dad is keeping secret. The children don't understand the reasons and oldest daughter Anne rebels. Dad and Anne are both miserable at the lack of understanding between them. Then in a deft and moving scene, Dad becomes aware of how much Anne has grown up.

Adapted by Christopher Sergel. From the book by Frank B. Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.
