  Once Upon a Matress Jr - May 18 - 20

If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise! Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that it may not have been the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night? Carried on a wave of beguiling songs, by turns hilarious and raucous, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance provides for some side-splitting shenanigans.

  Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep - June 1 - 3

They are called the best four years of our lives... and they are. Memories made in high school range from that first magical kiss to the last dance at Junior Prom. But high school isn't just dreamy-eyed romance. That 4-year trek is also fraught with uncertainty, betrayal, danger, stress, love, hate, and fear. Although times have changed, the basic stories remain the same. Come join the teenagers of Schoolhouse Arts Center as we share this evocative story. Even if high school is but a distant dream now; if you think your children's children would be more likely to identify, you too will lose yourself in the flood of emotions, memories, and the honest storytelling of Jerry Walker's Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. Performances will be June 1, 2 & 3 at 7:30 pm on Friday & Saturday and 2:00 pm on Sunday.
