MEDIA THEATRE'S 2016-17 CHILDREN'S SERIES SEASON BRINGS LITTLE RED, WINNIE, CINDERELLA, AND A TRIP TO WONDERLAND
"Winnie-The-Pooh's Christmas Tail" entertains for the holidays November 12 through December 31. (Note there is no show on Christmas Day, Dec. 25). In the musical, Christopher Robin hears the story of a Christmas Eve very long ago--about last year--when Eeyore, everyone's favorite old gray donkey who lives by himself in the thistle corner of Hundred-Acre Wood, lost his tail. Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet get their friends together to search for his lost 'ending'. The delightful adventure has a theme of caring, sharing, and friendship.
The spring brings "Alice In Wonderland". The Media Theatre's Ben Kapilow, who gives private piano lessons throughout the year and who wrote the music for the recent "Jungle Book" and "Peter Pan And Wendy", writes a new score for this fast-paced humorous adventure in which Alice follows The White Rabbit to come face to face with the Queen of Hearts. She has quite an adventure, meeting a Caterpillar, Tweedledee and Tweedledum, and others from Lewis Carroll's book. "Alice" is on March 4 to May 21.
