Did you ever wonder how new plays are chosen for production? Here's your chance to find out–and, if you wish, participate in the process!

In our New Play-Reading Festival, four brand-new plays for young audiences, chosen from 100 submitted works, will be read by professional and community artists in a casual setting. Following each reading, the entire family can participate in discussion of the work with our professional team. One of the four plays will be selected to become a fully mounted production in 2016! Bring the family for this unique theatre event!

Roald Dahl's James & The Giant Peach is now a Theatre for Young Audiences musical for the whole family to enjoy!
Featuring a wickedly tuneful score by the TONY Award-nominated team of Pasek and Paul (Dogfight and A Christmas Story the Musical) and a curiously quirky book by Timothy Allen McDonald (Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka, The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley), critics rave James & the Giant Peach is a "masterpeach!"
Following each Friday performance, enjoy a Post-Show talkback with the creative team!
