Fairies of all ages and genders are invited to our very special tea party, right in our own beautiful gardens! Fairies will serve up light snacks, treats and assorted tea in beautiful tea pots. Dressing in your most magical fairy attire is encouraged, as there will be lovely photo opportunities in the blooming garden and by the fairy swing. Plus young fairies will get to make their very own wand and hunt for fairy houses in a scavenger hunt around our Riverfront Patio.
It's a beautiful afternoon of fun where we all embrace our inner fairy!

When Nina enters her first air guitar competition, she discovers that there's more to this art form than playing pretend; it's about finding yourself in your favorite songs and performing with raw joy.
Airness is an exuberant reminder that everything we need to rock is already inside us. A comedy full of heart about competition, self-discovery, and the joys of being a nerd.

The bawdy and bombastic Sir Falstaff has been raising hell in the quiet town of Windsor. He hatches a plan to seduce two of Windsor's most wealthy married women, but when they catch wind of his salacious scheme, they turn the tables, joining forces to teach him a lesson he won't soon forget.

Centuries after he lived, William Shakespeare's plays are performed around the world. But in the years following his death, his legacy was at stake. The Book of Will follows his friends as they have to beg, borrow, and band together to compile the First Folio and preserve the Bard's words for generations to come. It's a true story full of love, loss, and laughter that sheds new light on a man you may think you know on the 400th anniversary of the First Folio.

What remains when civilization has crumbled? Stories. In a post-apocalyptic near-future, survivors gather around the campfire to recall an episode of The Simpsons and hold on to the memory of the way the world was. Mr. Burns is a dark comedy that takes us across a century to discover how a memory becomes a story that becomes a myth and how we rebuild our world together.
