Each year, the JCC School of Performing Arts presents an exciting professional theater series that introduces children ages 3 and up to the exciting world of live theater. Each show is presented by a well-known children’s theater company that travels all over the US and abroad, bringing our community the best of the best in an affordable and accessible venue. This year’s series begins with TheatreworksUSA’s Fly Guy & Other Stories—A Musical.

This brand new musical is based on favorite children’s books including Fly Guy Meets Fly Girl, Diary of a Worm, Fluffy the Classroom Guinea Pig, Horace & Morris But Mostly Dolores, Kitten’s First Full Moon, Lilly’s Big Day and Paper Bag Princess. The JCC will be one of the first stops in the premiere tour of Fly Guy & Other Stories. Come find out what happens when boy fly who can do fancy flying tricks meets a girl fly who can do ever fancier ones. Meet a funny little worm who goes to school and gets to eat his homework. See what Prince Ronald does when Princess Elizabeth tricks a crazy dragon and rescues him. All audiences are sure to enjoy all the adventures in these stories as the young actors sing, dance and bring the stories to life.

TheatreworksUSA is widely considered the finest theater for young audiences in the US. It has a distinguished history of providing young audiences with their first taste of the performing arts, and many of its young actors have gone on to originate lead roles in Broadway shows and win Tony awards. TheatreworksUSA is the only children's theatre to receive both a Drama Desk and a Lucille Lortel Award. It was the recipient of a 2001 Jonathan Larson Performing Arts Foundation Award, and in May 2000, The Actors Fund of American bestowed its Medal of Honor upon its founders, Jay Harnick and Charles Hull.
