Keeping Mr. Lincoln

Children (12 & Under) - $10.00

Students (13-18)/ Seniors (65+)/ Military - $13.00

Adults - $16.00

Plot Summary Keeping Mr. Lincoln: The play celebrates Lincoln’s life through his own words and those of people who knew him. An ensemble of actors—regardless of their own age, gender or ethnicity—take turns playing Abraham Lincoln and important people in his Kentucky childhood, Indiana youth, and Illinois and D.C. adulthood. The play is the fascinating story of the son of poor, uneducated parents who transformed himself into an eloquent orator, a skillful leader, and, ultimately, president of the United States of America. What drove him? What inspired him? What fed and supported his remarkable journey? Though we can never fully know the answers to those questions, we “keep” Mr. Lincoln by continuing to explore them. This play is dedicated to doing just that.

The Neverending Story

Children (12 & Under) - $10.00

Students (13-18)/ Seniors (65+)/ Military - $13.00

Adults - $16.00

Plot Summary The Neverending Story: Told with all the thrills of a classic adventure, the story begins with Bastian, a lonely boy, who stumbles into a curious bookshop where he discovers a curious book—The Neverending Story. Bastian hides in the attic of his school and begins to read, and a huge adventure surges into life. Fantastica, a land of stories, is being destroyed by the Nothing. The Childlike Empress has chosen Atreyu, a young hunter, to be the Hero of the Great Quest. Atreyu, an orphan, is an unlikely choice, but he accepts and, with his horse and companion, Artax, rides to face the menace. First, he experiences the Nothing and discovers its thoughtless destruction. Then he is guided by a dream to the Swamps of Sadness where he meets Morla, the Ancient One, who reveals another solution. He must find the Childlike Empress a new name. With this new direction, Atreyu faces Ygramul the Many, befriends Falkor the Luck Dragon, and solves the riddles of the three magic gates to meet Uyulala. From her he learns that only a human child can give the Empress a new name. In despair he faces his final test—the werewolf Gmork—and returns to the Childlike Empress without a new name. However, his quest has attracted a human child. It is Bastian himself who calls out a new name for the Empress, and the story rushes to its triumphant and moving conclusion.
