On Sale Now - Two New Shows Starting in February
Physically apart, perhaps, but spiritually as close as only true lovers can be.

Melissa and Andy are childhood friends who share a lifelong connection. Through their letters we hear of their struggles, their joys, and their search for satisfaction. Though physically apart, they are as spiritually connected as true lovers can be. We learn that happiness is found in the relationships we build, rather than the elements of a material life.

February 6 - 14
Tickets: $25

The world’s most beloved puppet comes to life in this humorous and heartfelt adaptation of the classic.

Geppetto, a lonely toymaker, longs to have a child to call his own. But he soon gets more than he bargained for when Pinocchio—a marionette carved from an enchanted log—springs to life before his eyes! Filled with memorable characters and magical adventures, Once Upon A Pine reminds audiences of the importance of love, friendship and honesty. And that’s no lie.

February 20 - March 7
Tickets: Youth $15, Adult $20
These production are live and in person. Seating is limited to 25% of capacity with seat groupings spaced 6 feet apart.
