The endlessly imaginative PigPen Theatre Co. elevates traditional storytelling to high art in the fantastical, song-filled play THE OLD MAN AND THE OLD MOON. After nearly a lifetime of tending to the old moon (which leaks its liquid light daily), an old man abandons his post when his wife unexpectedly leaves home. With spirited folk music, inventive theatrical effects and a rollicking array of ever-changing characters, the wunderkinds of PigPen perform a folk-rock fable about light, love and an epic journey to the End of the World.
Some travel by bus and some get around by bike, but to see the whole world, it's best to hitch a ride on the tail of a giant humpback whale. As told by a loving father to his young daughter, one small snail "with an itchy foot" does just that in an adventure-filled story about an unlikely friendship. Based on the beloved book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, and adapted for the stage by London's Tall Stories (The Gruffalo, New Vic 2004), THE SNAIL AND THE WHALE uses brilliant storytelling, beautiful live music and lots of laughs to remind us how even little friends can be big heroes.

From the townships of South Africa, Isango Ensemble bursts onto the stage in an inspired reimagining of Mozart's masterpiece opera THE MAGIC FLUTE: Impempe yomlingo. Sung in English by an ensemble of more than two dozen vibrant voices, classic arias are enlivened with exhilarating orchestrations of merry marimbas and powerful percussion. A brilliant fusion of fairy tale and African myth, the show shines especially bright when the majestic Pauline Malefane performs her acclaimed interpretation of the Queen of the Night. Winner of an Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival (Young Vic, London) and a Globes de Cristal for Best Opera (Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris), this fresh, fearless and fantastical production, co-produced by Eric Abraham and the Young Vic, brims with dazzling drama, crisp comedy and the sublime joy of finding true love.
A seemingly plain room becomes a playpen of surprises when a solo dancer discovers silly stories everywhere—on the doors of a wardrobe, upon the covers of a bed and even in the opening of a drawer. Set to a sunny soundtrack, MINIMÓN (which translates to "small world") uses lyrical movement, clever projections and a little magic to make dreamers of us all. Families are in for a treat when, after the show, young theatergoers are invited to explore this wondrous, small world.
