The Legend of Sleepy Hollow has been at the top of the list of great stories for almost two hundred years! Thrill and perhaps chill your students (although it’s not too scary for little ones) with Theatre IV’s masterful musical retelling of this lively legend. Ichabod Crane, Brom Bones, the lovely Katrina Van Tassel, and the Headless Horseman come to life in this autumnal classic written by Washington Irving in 1819.

Presented by Virginia Repertory Theatre. Book, music, and lyrics by Paul Deiss.

Alexander has just received some really bad news. His dad has taken a job in a city a thousand miles away, which means that he and his family are going to have to move to a whole new city. And even though his mom says, "Wait, you'll like it," Alexander already knows that he'll hate it. He can't bear to leave the people and places he loves, so he decides that he won't move. With a little help from his mom and dad and even his bossy older brothers they help him understand that home is "where your family is, where you're with the people who love you best of all."

Theatreworks' production of Charlotte's Web is based on E.B. White's loving story of the friendship between a pig named Wilbur and a little gray spider named Charlotte. Wilbur has a problem: how to avoid winding up as pork chops! Charlotte, a fine writer and true friend, hits on a plan to fool Farmer Zuckerman -- she will create a "miracle." Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig, but ensures his place on the farm forever. This treasured tale explores bravery, selfless love, and the true meaning of friendship.
