The Twelve Dancing Princesses in Broadway THE TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES
First Act Children's Theatre
New! We are very pleased to offer a new short-day format for our Super Saturday participants! King Percival and Queen Penelope are at their wits end! They cannot solve the riddle of why their twelve daughters keep wearing out the soles of their slippers. Little do they know that the castle fairies are assisting the Princesses in escaping every night to dance until the dawn! When Stephen the shoemaker offers to solve the mystery, the Princesses give him a run for the money! Staged beautifully with plenty of Princess Crowns and dresses in classic fairy-tale fashion, this is a play that is sure to please everyone involved! Our "Play in a Day" format includes auditions, rehearsal and performance of a short play. This includes costumes and a small setting as well. The students do not need to prepare anything ahead of time; everything is done on the single day of camp. The camps are designed to be low-pressure, fun introductions to theatre for beginning actors, regardless of age. For those youth actors with more experience, we offer a few more challenging roles to keep them engaged for the day. Each camp has a performance "showcase" at the end of the day where we share our play with an invited audience.

When Livia Hart becomes famous overnight for painting a giant sex scene on a building that houses an abortion clinic, her agent has a brilliant plan to capitalize on the sudden fame. She urges Livia to sign dozens of other paintings-which happen to have been painted by Ruley Jones, another starving artist and Livia's lover. Can they pull off the scheme without artistic integrity (make that jealousy) causing damage to themselves and the paintings? This serious comedy examines the relationship of artist to art, and of artist to other artists.

Splendor in the Math in Broadway SPLENDOR IN THE MATH
Broom Street Theater
Math! A word that strikes fear into many a heart. But why? Splendor in the Math, a new comedy by Scott Feiner, uses innovative staging and humor to explore the fear of mathematics and show how complex math concepts relate to our everyday. Feiner's work will subtract the fear of math and replace it instead with multiple laughs and divide us from the obstacles that keep us from enjoying the math in our daily lives.

Southminster Presbyterian Church
The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams. When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt, Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity are continually challenged. He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches the Pharaoh (wryly and riotously depicted as Elvis), Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command. Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognize. After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt reconciliation of the sons of Israel. Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale emerges both timely and timeless.Lyrics by Tim Rice; Music by Andrew Lloyd Webber
