When P.T. Barnum arrives in town with his traveling troupe, the mayor isn’t so sure Barnum’s on the level. So, the master showman agrees to give a sample of his wares. What follows is knee slappin’, foot stompin’, rip roarin’ fun, as some of the best loved characters in American folklore come to life to show us their stories. As P.T. Barnum might say, prepare to be amused, amazed, astounded, edified and infinitely entertained. And now — on with the show!
This is a fun time for all! Not only will students be actors in the show; they will also build and paint the sets, create their own costumes, create and pull props, learn tech and for a few lucky students; assistant direct a couple of scenes! This is an all-inclusive opportunity to be creative! The show will be performed for family and friends the last day of class.
Price: $175 per student

This story is set in medieval times, when kings and queens ruled and there were always happily ever afters, but not for everyone. A family of three dragons - the last of their species – is trying stay alive. The dragon slayer, Wrestly tries to impress his future in-laws by slaying the last living dragons and winning the hand of the princess. In the meantime, at the palace, a group of various entertainers are trying to get the princess out of her depression, but nothing works. All she wants is her precious Wrestly.
A contest is held. Everyone learns how to hip hop dance and the winner will receive a hundred dollars or the hand of the princess. Who will it be? Will Wrestly be able to impress the royals? Will the dragons survive? Enjoy the fun and laughter along with lots of crazy characters. The show will be performed for family and friends the last day of class.
