Huck Finn  
Children's Theatre Company Huck Finn
Run away with rapscallions Huck and Jim, finding hijinks and history and hilarity, all wrapped up in one unbreakable friendship. Director Greg Banks (Pinocchio and Robin Hood) has thunk up some whip-smart action and crackling dialogue, with three agile, high-energy actors muscling up Mark Twain’s masterwork, transforming from character to character before your eyes. We reckon it’s ’bout the best time a “sivilized” soul can have, outside of floating down the Mississip’ on a handmade raft.
Mary Poppins  
Chanhassen Dinner Theatres Mary Poppins
Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic 1964 Walt Disney film, the stage musical is a fusion of various elements from the two. This is the story of the Banks family when a new nanny, Mary Poppins, arrives on their doorstep at 17 Cherry Tree Lane in London. The family finds that Mary Poppins is the answer to their prayers, but in the most unique and marvelous way. Along the journey we find that even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the very special nanny who proposes that "anything can happen if you let it."
