Inspired by Lee’s own childhood in Alabama, To Kill a Mockingbird features one of literature’s towering symbols of integrity and righteousness in the character of Atticus Finch, based on Lee’s own father.

It won the Pulitzer Prize and quickly became a global phenomenon, with more than 50 million copies in print to date.

This classic children’s book comes to life on stage in an exploration of movement, color and space.  The dogs delve into life with gusto, creating a visual spectacle for the audience to feast upon.  They snorkel. They howl at the moon. They ride a Ferris wheel. They dance and climb trees all in world of doggy fun.

A raucous, campy fracturing of the classic fairy tale, this delightful storyteller version sets a spun gold standard for the adaptation of old favorites. Pity poor, sweet Lilie. She survives with her Pappa on rock soup and dirt delicacies. Her Pappa persists in bumping into the queen, getting star struck and wildly claiming his daughter can perform all sorts of impossible tasks. Once installed in the castle to supposedly bake pies into diamonds and sweep dust into silk, Lilie meets the irascible Rumpelstiltskin.

Robin Hood: hero, hopeless lover, or evil criminal? Upon his return from the Crusades, King Richard is forced to try and figure out what happened in his kingdom during his absence. Is the outlaw Robin Hood a hero, a lovelorn sap or just plain mean?  Told from the perspectives of Robin himself, Maid Marian and Prince John, this hilarious tale combines three different stories into one—and with three different endings. Leaves it up to the audience to decide which one is true.
