Disney's High School Musical

Disney's High School Musical
Based on Disney’s Emmy Award-winning TV movie and adapted for the stage by David Simpatico, Disney’s High School Musical transports audiences to East High and into the story of two clique-crossed lovers: basketball star Troy and brainy new student Gabriella. A chance meeting leads the pair to break free from expectations, and try out for the school musical. When the school’s reigning musical diva, Sharpay, and her brother connive to schedule the play’s callbacks for the same time as Troy’s big game and Gabriella’s scholastic decathlon, the whole school works together to find a way to let Troy and Gabriella shine on stage.

The Big Friendly Giant

The Big Friendly Giant
The Big Friendly Giant is the story of Sophie, a young orphan, who spies The BFG from her window one night. When he spots her and whisks her away to Giant Country, Sophie fears for her life. But, The BFG is not like other giants: instead of eating “human beans,” The BFG eats only “vegitibbles” like “snozzcumbers,” and instead of nightly hunting rampages, he collects pleasant dreams to deliver to sleeping children. Together Sophie and The BFG try to save England from the “gizzardgulpers” – orphan-eating giants who lack The BFG’s heart.

The Neverending Story

The Neverending Story
World Premiere In a land devoured by The Nothing, only one boy can save everything. All he must do is believe in Fantastica, believe in imagination, and believe in himself. The Neverending Story was originally written as a children’s book and published in Germany in 1979. The story was later made into a well-known hit movie of the same title in 1984 with several subsequent sequels. Now this wonderful tale of fantasy and imagination comes to life on SCT’s own Charlotte Martin stage in this world premiere production. Ann and Nancy Wilson of the rock band Heart contribute two new, original songs to SCT’s production.

Hamlet

Hamlet
Prince Hamlet returns to Denmark to find his father murdered and his uncle Claudius in possession of his father’s wife and throne. This treachery unsettles the spirit of the late King. He beckons his son Hamlet to avenge his untimely death. Hamlet puts on the trappings of madness to try and unearth the truth. He casts off all his old friends and even spouts “wild and whirling words” denouncing his love for the sweet Ophelia in favor of his new obsession – vengeance. Or is this madness merely a ruse to “catch the conscience of the king” so Hamlet may enact his revenge? Sensing the danger his nephew presents, Claudius conspires to slay Hamlet. And amidst the clashing of swords and passing of poisoned goblets, all the players fall prey to the treachery that stains the soil of poor Denmark.

The Hundred Dresses

The Hundred Dresses
The Hundred Dresses is a story of bullying, courage and the meaning of friendship. Wanda Petronski just wants to join the fun of having friends, like everyone else. But in 1930s small town America, a Polish immigrant doesn’t easily fit in. When Maddie’s best friend, Peggy, starts to tease Wanda, Maddie knows this isn’t right. When the teasing doesn’t stop and the Petronskis move to get away from the town’s prejudices, Maddie is wracked with guilt. She soon realizes that allowing her friend to be a bully can be just as bad as acting that way herself. Determined not to let her fear get the best of her again, Maddie braves the scorn of her classmates and stands up to them, making an unlikely friend in the bargain.

According to Coyote

According to Coyote
In Native American lore, Coyote, the trickster, is a character full of fun and rich with meaning. He plays tricks on the rocks, dances with the stars, and creates the tribes. Whether it’s learning how we came to possess fire or how we came to be, Coyote is at the heart of the story. In the tradition of great legends that have been passed from people to people and generation to generation, we bring you the tales that helped shape the world around us.
