Buddy, a young orphan, crawls into Santa's bag and is transported to the North Pole, where the would-be elf is raised, unaware he is actually human. Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to discover the truth and he embarks on a journey to discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh reality that his father is on the naughty list and his brother doesn't even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas! Take a classic Christmas film, add some Broadway tunes, and you’ve got the recipe for a holiday treat for the whole family.

Best known for writing “Little Women,” Louisa May Alcott’s own evolving womanhood was more complex than that of her alter ego Jo March. A dedicated feminist and abolitionist, her relationship with her father, a figure largely absent from her classic novel, allowed her to associate with literary greats like Thoreau and Emerson. But her father’s shortcomings and failures also informed her desire to be free from the constraints of marriage and motherhood, leaving her determined to “paddle my own canoe.”

MAIN STAGE SHOW - Friendly Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream

Auditions: (Reservations Required)

March 7th & 8th, 2022 

4:30-6:30pm | Arts United Center | Ages 8+

 

Shakespeare’s love potion-fueled comedy gets the Youtheatre treatment in this hilarious and fast-paced 60 minute adaptation! In the forest, two young couples and an incompetent troupe of wanna-be actors get caught up in a battle of wits and wills between the fairy king and queen. Comic mix-ups and spells gone wrong make for an overly eventful night until “all is mended” as the curtain comes down. It’s sure to be a Dream come true as audiences of all ages discover the magic that’s enchanted theatregoers for over 400 years!
