The Velveteen Rabbit

Mar 10 – 26, 2017

The cherished tale about the transformational magic of love graces our main stage this March. “Real isn’t how you are made,” the old Skin Horse tells the Velveteen Rabbit, “It’s a thing that happens to you when a child loves you for a long, long time.” This treasured story of a stuffed rabbit’s desire to become REAL is told through original music and dance. It continues our popular performance collaboration with Escalate Dance that brought you Owl Moon, Twelve Dancing Princesses and The Snow Queen.

Stone Soup at Stages Theatre Company

Stone Soup

Apr 21 – May 21, 2017

The classic folktale of the feared strangers who inspire a whole community through the use of one little stone charms its way onto our main stage this spring in a world premiere musical. When war-weary foreigners arrive in the village square, fear and suspicion reign. But as the outsiders start to make soup out of a stone, each of the locals is prompted to contribute to the ever-growing, communal meal. Come share this ageless story with us as it serves up a delightfully poignant reminder that community is built one ingredient at a time.

The super-hero squirrel, Ulysses and the self-proclaimed cynic Flora Belle Buckman land in our Hopkins Jaycees Studio this spring in an inspiring story of being born anew. When Flora saves Ulysses after he is sucked up through a vacuum cleaner, neither could predict the changes that will ensue. This eccentric, endearing saga about the possibilities of hope and the promises of a capacious heart is a world premiere adaptation based on the #1 New York Times best-selling author, Kate DiCamillo’s 2014 Newbery Medal winner.

Fortunately, Shrek is on his way!
