Synopsis: 

From the day we're hatched to the day we spread our wings and fly on our own, there are requisite, riotous rites of passage that must be experienced. This collection of humorous scenes explores the innocent squawk of infancy, the terrible twos, the treacherous teens, and everything in between.

 

There are survival courses on how to handle any kind of baby-sitter - from the perfect to the perfectly insane. There are tactics for dealing with those who endeavor to shape, stretch and warp our minds and bodies - like gym teachers, substitute teachers, and those cafeteria culinary queens, the "Little Lunch Ladies." From the angst of adolescence and part-time jobs to the dangers of driver's ed. and dealing with the dreaded kid sister, this is a hilarious, high-flying adventure. Whether you're a feather short of adulthood or have a bird's-eye view of growing up, this play soars with laughter.

Synopsis

A hilarious and heartwarming musical story about what happens when the North Pole loses the Christmas Spirit. It’s been years since the Elves and Reindeer have gotten along. The Reindeer egos are high and Elves’ productivity is low. This has resulted in the worst Christmas to date…only 60% of presents were delivered! Now it’s January. Will a week vacationing in the sun help remind the Elves and Reindeer what Christmas is all about?
