Synopsis:THE ADDAMS FAMILY, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story. It’s every father’s nightmare: Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family– a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before– keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

Share the adventures of Anne Shirley and her “best friend for life,” Diana Barry, as they travel from childhood to maturity in this heartwarming adaptation which beautifully captures the highlights of the classic novel.
Maria Cuthbert asks for an orphan boy to help her and her brother take care of Green Gables, but the orphanage sends Anne with an “e” — an independent, red-headed, freckle-faced girl who changes their lives and touches the hearts of all who come to know and love her. Delight in Anne’s high-spirited antics as she narrowly escapes Mrs. Blewett’s clutches at the orphanage, whacks Gilbert over the head with her slate, saves little Minnie May from her deathbed and, when she has come of age, finally lets Gilbert into her life. In the touching words of Marilla, Anne is “the dearest mistake” that’s ever come into her life, and she doesn’t know how she could love her more.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Audition Dates: April 24th & 25th 2023
Show Dates: June 24th & 25th 2023
Snow White Synopsis: The wonderful world of the Brothers Grimm is brought to life in this delightful adaptation of Snow White by Tim Kelly. The usual characters are in the tale but additional, new unexpected ones give this well-loved, timeless fairytale classic a fresh and comical (at times), enhancement which will enchant and enthrall audiences of all ages! Be sure to get your tickets early through Eventbrite when they become available (see our website for a direct link to Eventbrite) for you surely do not want to miss this entertaining performance at the beautiful Schwartz Center for the Arts in Dover, DE. Tickets may also be purchased at the door.
