Show Descriptions:
Frozen Jr: Frozen JR. is based on the 2018 Broadway musical, and brings Elsa, Anna, and the magical land of Arendelle to life, onstage. The show features all of the memorable songs from the animated film, with music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, plus five new songs written for the Broadway production. A story of true love and acceptance between sisters, Frozen JR. expands upon the emotional relationship and journey between Princesses Anna and Elsa. When faced with danger, the two discover their hidden potential and the powerful bond of sisterhood. With a cast of beloved characters and loaded with magic, adventure, and plenty of humor, Frozen JR. is sure to thaw even the coldest heart!

Legends of Sleepy Hollow:
Ichabod Crane has come to Sleepy Hollow to replace the former school mistress Emily, who died under mysterious circumstances. At first it is all flirtations and laughter for Ichabod as he garners the attention of the town’s single ladies, including the vivacious Katrina Van Tassel and the humble Alice Hudson. Yet Ichabod’s tale darkens as his rival Brom Bones threatens him and the Headless Horseman and other supernatural legends bubble to the surface. What is really happening in Sleepy Hollow? And what does Ichabod truly need to fear: supernatural ghosts and demons, or the all too natural evil lurking in the human heart?
