An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul crushing, pout inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. Appropriate for ages 13 and up. $20 / $10 / Season / Flex

Psychiatrist Victor Karleen is in desperate need of money to keep up with his fiancee’s extravagant tastes. A simple misunderstanding concerning a rather torrid manuscript solves his problem...until everything goes wrong. How Victor saves his relationship, keeps his reputation and stays out of the unemployment line, makes up the plot of this zany, fast-paced farce.

The Dark Ages look pretty dark as a small French town is beseiged by a string of disasters. Saint Foy, the patron of a local monastery hasn’t performed a miracle in years and the church’s coffers are looking pretty bare. All seems lost until the destitute monks take a lesson from a larcenous one-eyed minstral, who teaches them an outrageous new way to pay old debts. $18 / $10 / Season / Flex

A down-on-his-luck Broadway producer and his mild-mannered accountant come up with a scheme to produce the most notorious flop in history thereby bilking their backers (all “little old ladies”) out of millions of dollars. Problem is--the show is a smash hit! The antics of Bialystock and Bloom as they find a show, hire a director, raise the money and finally go to prison for their misdeeds are comic genius!
The show still holds the record for the most Tony wins (12), including Best Musical. $20 / $10 / Season / Flex
Our Sprouts shows are performances by kids, for kids. Typically shorter in length, these productions feature child-friendly content for our younger theater-goers.
