January 2017

Alexander has just received some really bad news. His dad has taken a job in a city a thousand miles away, which means that he and his family are going to have to move to a whole new city. And even though his mom says, “Wait, you’ll like it,” Alexander already knows that he’ll hate it. He can’t bear to leave the people and places he loves, so he decides that he won’t move. First he tries to live with three different neighbors. Then he tries to build a tent so he can live by himself. Then he decides he’ll hide so that his parents’ll never find him, but that doesn’t work out either. With a little help from his mom and dad, and even his bossy older brothers, they help him to understand that home is “where your family is, where you’re with the people who love you best of all.”

Direct from a 4-star sold-out run in London’s West End where The Times calls it “charming, funny” and “spot on” – it’s Graeme of Thrones! This theatrical journey through the Seven Kingdoms is a hilarious parody that the West Australian calls, “A roller coaster ride of beheadings, incest and war.” Avid ‘Thrones’ fan Graeme just wants to recreate his favorite fantasy saga on stage – aided and abetted by his best friend Paul and the woman he used to fancy at school – Bryony. Written by the UK’s top comedy writers, Graeme of Thrones is an original and unauthorized parody of the HBO phenom that is Game of Thrones. A treat for fans and an introduction for the unenlightened. Mature audiences only.

In a concert-style show that he has been presenting for the last five years, Hanna introduces a variety of animals on stage along with video clips from his many wildlife adventures around the world, hoping to entertain and inform in the laid-back style that has made him the Director Emeritus to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, one of the country’s most recognizable animal authorities. “It’s like going on safari with me and getting a chance to see the animals on stage as well,” Hanna said. “I love doing these shows because when I do my TV shows all you really see is cameras in front of you, but here is a chance to really meet people and talk to them and find out what they want to know.”

This fun-filled ballet is a story of a magician who accidentally mixes up his magic spells with a recipe for pancakes one morning! As a result, all the pancakes come to life and escape throughout the city. His whole family then set about the hilarious task of chasing down the pancakes and bringing them home.
