of American musical theater. Music by Alan Menken (Disney's The Little Mermaid, Beauty
and the Beast, Newsies, Little Shop of Horrors), lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Wicked,
Godspell, Pippin). An intimate retelling of the famous love story, with a lush, emotionally
rich score and a production that will leave you inspired. Not recommended for children under

Inside Story is a 20 minute pre-show event presented 45 minutes before every performance
in McCarter's Theatre Series. On Saturday matinees of Ken Ludwig's Baskerville: A Sherlock
Holmes Mystery, theatre-goers may chose between a traditional "Inside Story" talk, and a 20-
minute interactive, family-friendly workshop to prepare and inspire young audience
members before they experience the play.

The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey's teaching artists will help students begin to discover how a piece of Stage Combat is created. Focusing primarily on safety and storytelling, participating students will be given an opportunity to learn some basic "hand to hand" stage combat techniques. Hopefully this fun, fast paced workshop will give students a glimpse into the hard work and training that goes into creating the realistic illusions of violence they see on stage.
