The Biggest Little House in the Forest  
Children's Theatre Company The Biggest Little House in the Forest
 
Bernice the Butterfly has a bright, cheery home all to herself—or so she thinks. But then along comes Millie the Mouse, who wants to move in. Then Fred the Frog. And Bartholomew the Bear. And you! What happens next is an eruption of preschool-friendly chaos, with every kid invited to join in, unleash their imagination and run away to a land where friends pop up in the—oopsie doopsie!—most unexpected places. Expect feathers, bubbles and one squeal-worthy surprise after another, so bring your buddies and your favorite dancing shoes!
 
   
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."
