Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse

Sunday, November 16, 2014
1pm and 4pm
All tickets: $20.00
Produced by Omaha Theater Company

Lilly loves everything about school, especially her cool teacher, Mr. Slinger. But when he confiscates her prized possession, a purple plastic purse that plays music, joy turns to misery in Lilly's Plastic Purple Purse. Lilly, who is used to being the brightest and loudest mouse around, will also have to get used to sharing the spotlight with her new baby brother in this charming adaptation of Kevin Henkes' award-winning children's book.

Gripped with anger after losing her purse, Lilly draws a mean portrait of Mr. Slinger and hides it in his book bag. But when she gets her purse back and opens it outside of school, she finds a surprising note: "Today was a difficult day. Tomorrow will be better." Suddenly wracked with guilt, Lilly sets out to make up with her teacher. But villainous bicycle-riding bullies, a spotlight-stealing baby brother and the dreaded "uncooperative chair" will test our heroine's resolve.

Recommended for ages 4-8.

The Lightning Thief
Sunday, February 8, 2015
1pm and 4pm
All tickets: $20.00
Produced by Theatreworks USA

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that’s the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy’s Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he’s angered a few of them. Zeus’s master lightning bolt has been stolen and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy has ten days to find and return Zeus’s stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves. Based on the popular book series by Rick Riordan.

Recommended for grades 2-6.

But, he soon realizes that when he is surrounded by books, he is never alone. Dog begins to read the books in his store and discovers that when customers finally come in to his store, he knows exactly which books to recommend.

Join the inquisitive, lovable little monkey Curious George, star of books, movies and the award winning PBS television show in this delightful new musical.

All–You-Can-Eat Meatball Day came just once a year. George had been waiting all month for that day, a day almost bigger than his birthday! On Meatball Day, George helped his friend Chef Pisghetti cook some delicious meatballs, and serve them to the hungry crowd. But this year, the crowd had vanished! Something was keeping people away. Something pretty big.  And that “something” was Phinneas T. Lightspeed and his speedy Meatballs O’Matic machine. In despair, Chef Pisghetti vows to cook no more. Determined to help his friend, George goes on a mission to enter the Chef’s meatballs in the world-famous Golden Meatball Contest…in Rome.

With every swing and flip, George takes the audience through a fun-filled adventure in which he learns more about Rome...and meatballs...and the “secret ingredient” to cooking!

Recommended for grades pre K – 3.
