A down-and-out skid row floral assistant becomes an overnight sensation when he discovers an exotic plant with a mysterious craving for fresh blood. Soon “Audrey II” grows into an ill-tempered, foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore who offers him fame and fortune in exchange for feeding its growing appetite, finally revealing itself to be an alien creature poised for global domination!

Young Dorothy, like so many girls her age, dreams of what lies over the rainbow. One day a twister hits her Kansas farm and carries her away - way over the rainbow - to another world. Come join Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and Toto as they travel the universe within Dorothy’s imagination. Or is it just a place, “Where dreams do lie”?

Based on the Play by J.M. Barrie and the 1953 Disney Film
Wendy loves to tell stories to her brothers: Michael and John. But when her father announces she must move out of the nursery, Peter Pan comes to visit the children and whisks them away to Never Land. Their adventure introduces them to the Lost Boys, Mermaids, Indians and even the infamous pirate, Captain Hook!
Based on the Disney film and J.M. Barrie’s enchanting play, Disney’s Peter Pan, JR. is a modern version of the timeless tale about a boy who wouldn’t grow up - with no flying required! The score includes new arrangements of classic Disney songs, such as “Following the Leader,” “You Can Fly,” “The Second Star to the Right” and “Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me.”
