Disney’s My Son Pinocchio Jr.
Junior Performing Ensemble – ages 7-11
Performances: January 30 and 31, 2015
WHERE: Preakness Reformed Church, Wayne, NJ
In Disney’s My Son Pinocchio Jr., the classic tale of toymaker Geppetto’s little wooden puppet is given new life. This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto’s perspective, features the beloved classic songs “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings,” alongside a host of new songs by Oscar- and Grammy Award-winner and master melodist Stephen Schwartz, tackling timely issues about what it means to be “the perfect child” – and what it means to be “a real father.”
Disney’s My Son Pinocchio Jr. is directed by Randi Seffinger.
Little Shop of Horrors
Senior Performing Ensemble – ages 11 and up
Performances: January 23 and 24, 2015
WHERE: Kinnelon High School, Kinnelon, NJ
A deviously delicious Broadway and Hollywood sci-fi smash musical, Little Shop of Horrors has devoured the hearts of theatre goers for over 30 years. The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names “Audrey II”—after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down-and-out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II’s out-of-this-world origins and intent toward global domination!
Little Shop of Horrors is directed by Aspire PAC Artistic Director, Lisa Beth Vettoso.
