Scrooge, the Musical
December 1, 2006 - January 7, 2007
What the dickens have they done to Scrooge?... They've put him in a big, big musical! This is a delightful musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel A Christmas Carol. Cold-souled Ebenezer Scrooge has a change of heart after spirit visitations on Christmas Eve. Folks might not have had much to sing about in 1840's England, but this musical will make you believe otherwise. Great for groups and families. Packed with show stopping songs, this is a heartwarming, feel good show for the holidays and all the family to enjoy.
Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat
January 19, 2007 - February 11, 2007
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams, and his father's favorite son. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by the Potifars where thwarting advances from the Mrs. lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel.

The Chronicles of Narnia ~ The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe
According to C. S. Lewis, it "all began with a picture of a Faun carrying an umbrella and parcels in a snowy wood." As readers of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe well know, that faun was Mr. Tumnus, who introduced Lucy Pevensie to Narnia, the enchanted land of talking animals and valiant battles. Since this first Narnia book was published in 1950, countless children have followed the tales of the world that Lucy found behind the wardrobe. See it come alive as a musical on The Artists' studio Stage.
