wonderful performer, crew and volunteer workers who made 2010 so
February 18, 19, 25, 26, March 4, 5, 6: Into The
Woods. An ambivalent Cinderella? A bloodthirsty Little Red
Riding Hood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A Witch – who
raps? They’re all in this musical fairy tale that tells us what
happens after the “happily ever after” in the stories we all know
and love. With Jack and the Beanstalk and the Baker and his wife,
Rapunzel, the giant, and a mysterious man, what begins as a lively
irreverent fantasy in the style of “The Princess Bride” becomes a
moving lesson in responsibility and the stories we tell our
March 11, 12: The Green Mirror. Celebrate

returning cast members and stirring Irish music, this is sure to be
a great celebration again!
March 24, 25, 26, April 1, 2, 7, 8, 9, 10: The
Miracle Worker. This stirring dramatization of the story of
Helen Keller is one of the most successful and admired plays in
modern theatre. Blind and mute, little Helen is trapped in her
secret world, bitter, violent, spoiled and almost animal-like. Only
Annie Sullivan, an Irish girl born blind herself, realizes that
there is a mind waiting to be rescued from that dark, tortured
silence. Her success comes only after some of the most turbulent,
violent, and emotion-packed scenes ever presented on stage. A
powerful story of love and courage that is “magnificent theatre”.
May 6, 7, 13, 14, 15, 20, 21, 22: You’re a Good Man,
Charlie Brown. This beloved musical about a typical day in
the life of everybody’s favorite loser is not only great theatre for
young people, it’s a gentle lesson in life for all of us. Based on
the legendary comic strip characters, Charlie Brown’s friends Linus,
Peppermint Patty, Snoopy, Lucy and Schroeder, this is a show that is
funny on many levels indeed – and a must-see!

Crossroads. A presentation of our Young Peoples Theatre
Workshop, this classic melodrama is new to Lakeland! Filled with
songs and audience participation, follow our heroine Nellie Lovelace
as she falls victim to the evil Munro Murgatroyd. Will her true

August 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27, 28: Catch Me If You
Can. This murder-mystery-comedy begins when a new groom who
has brought his bride to the boss’ mountain lodge for their
honeymoon calls in the local police to investigate her sudden
disappearance. Enter a woman who insists ( over his protests) that
she is the missing wife. A priest backs up her story, and then a
funny man from the local deli comes calling and now there are two
murders to solve! The New York Times said that “the final fifteen
minutes will reward you as a murder mystery should!”
September 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24, 25: The Diary Of
Anne Frank. Winner of the 1956 Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award,
Critics Circle Award, and virtually every other coveted prize of the
theatre. This story is now well-known: it is a lovely tender drama.
The shining spirit of a young girl now dead filters down through the
years and inspires over and over again. This is a wonderfully
sensitive and theatrically true narrative out of the real-life
legacy left us by a spirited and straightforward Jewish girl, as
bright and shining as a banner. This is a must-see for all ages.
October 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29, 30: Jekyll And Hyde.
A true musical theatre phenomenon, this show attracted legions of
loyal fans even before it began its smash Broadway run. An evocative
tale of the epic battle between good and evil, this musical is based
on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor
whose experiments with human personality create a murderous
counterpart. Jekyll And Hyde is pure, pulse-pounding theatre,
with the same combination of fun and fright that fuels such classics
as Sweeney Todd and The Phantom Of The Opera and a
beautiful musical score as well!

our young people entertain and maze you with their talent and their
inventiveness. Come out and support them and the work they do here
at the theatre!
