The Wizard of Oz
By L. Frank Baum
With Music and Lyrics by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg;  Background Music by Herbert Stothart   Dance and Vocal Arrangements by Peter Howard;  Orchestration by Larry Wilcox; Adapted by John Kane for the Royal Shakespeare Company. Based on the 1939 movie with Judy Garland.  Dorothy Gale, a young girl living on a Kansas farm with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, dreams of escaping her mundane life. So when witchy old Miss Gulch threatens to impound Dorothy’s dog Toto, Dorothy runs away with her pet, only to be whisked away to the Land of OZ in a terrifying cyclone. Looking for her way back home, she and her new friends sing some of the most iconic songs ever, including “If I Only Had a Brain/Heart/Nerve”, “Munchkin Land”, “Follow The Yellow Brick Road” and the classic “Over the Rainbow”.

A Christmas Story
By Philip Grecian. Based on the movie A Christmas Story,  Written by Jean Shepherd, Leigh Brown and Bob Clark

“You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!”   Jean Shepherd's memoir of growing up in 1940’s Indiana, follows Ralphie Parker in his quest to get a genuine Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. Ralphie pleads his case to his mother, his teacher and Santa Claus himself at Goldblatt's Department Store. All the elements from the beloved movie are here - the family's temperamental furnace, the school bully Scut Farkas, the boys' bet concerning a wet tongue on an icy lamppost, the Little Orphan Annie decoder ring;  and Ralphie's father winning “a major award” – the lady’s leg lamp in a fishnet stocking! A Christmas Story has become a theatrical holiday classic!
