The Pirate, The Princess and The Pea
A swashbuckling pirate and princess adventure! A pirate's life isn't all "yo-ho-ho and a bottle of grog," ya know. It's hard work searchin' for treasure, avoidin' the sea monsters, keepin' the crabs from eatin' your nose, and fallin' overboard just in time to meet a giant octopus. But it's worth it when ya haul in that treasure chest . . . but the treasure in this chest happens to be a princess . . . a princess who doesn't even believe you're a pirate! And how do you prove you're a real pirate? Arrgh. Well, ya start with a whole lot o' mattresses!

Jack & Jill
Jack & Jill is a one-man puppet show featuring hand-carved, folk-toy-inspired puppets and live music. The show explores the contemporary issue of water conservation in the tradition of the Appalachian Jack Tale. In this story, a young coal miner and his companion go 'up a hill to fetch a pail of water' then take on a selfish giant and save a whole neighborhood! Everyone is welcome to a big ol', heapin' helpin' of this good-natured, heartland American story of teaming up and looking out for the little guy. A show for all ages.
Back by popular demand! Casey Carle performs tricky undulations, manipulations and juggling with bubbles. An extremely unique program combining high energy entertainment with artistic achievement, BubbleMania is loaded with visual comedy, quick wit, big band swing music and the untamed, often unbelievable qualities and beauty of spherical liquids. Casey's creations grow from intricate and imaginative bubble artforms to "trapping" people inside bubbles! This is a bubble show to keep the 5 to 75 year-olds mesmerized.
