Upcoming Shows at Northern Starz

The Elves and The Shoemaker, The Musical

The Elves and the Shoemaker


This show is with our K-5th Grade performers. Performances are June 14th - 17th.

The best-selling children’s play has been musically revitalized with the playful and eclectic tunes of Bill Francoeur!  We love this upbeat, fast-paced retelling of an old favorite so much that we have two musicals based on the same script!

This piece is the first play for young audiences to receive the Kennedy Center's Fund for New American Plays Award. Still Life with Iris is a fantastical adventure which centers on a little girl's search for the simplest of things: home. Iris lives with her mom in the land of Nocturno—a magical place in which the workers make, by night, all of the things we see in the world by day.

Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces -- that is if they don't kill each other first. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family -- Southern-style.
