  •  "The classic Mark Twain story jumps off the page and comes to life in this musical adaptation of America's favorite book. THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER is the irresistible story of a young boy growing up in the heartland of America.  Set in 1840 Missouri, it is the tale of young Tom Sawyer and the never ending mischief of which he so often finds himself a part of; whether it's matching wits with Aunt Polly, tricking his friends into white-washing a fence for him, or narrowly escaping the clutches of a murderous villain. Along with best friend Huckleberry Finn and love interest Becky Thatcher, the greatest Tom Sawyer exploits are plucked from the book and plopped on the stage.  Aside from having one of the most recognizable titles from literary history, this musical piece is a superb family-friendly show"

    The Emperor's New Clothes, (Prince Street Players' Version)

    ook by  Jim Eiler

    Music by  Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy,

    Lyrics by  Jim Eiler.

    Based on the classic story by Hans Christian Andersen

    Two con-men "play the palace" in this breezy adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's well-known satirical tale. Mr. Stitch and Mr. Sew wreak havoc at Wits Ends Palace when they present the Emperor with a special gift: an exquisitely beautiful "magic" suit of clothes, invisible to all but the wisest of men. THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES is a charming exploration of the dangers of vanity, with a host of hilarious characters that includes a brassy, tap-dancing bugle-playing Empress. "
