Presented by the cast of SBT’S 2023 STUDENT SUMMER INTENSIVE PROGRAM.

A musical comedy told through song and dance, this ensemble cast of dazzling performers tells the tale of Pippin, a young prince who longs to find passion and adventure. Torn between loyalty to his father the king, his convictions to fight tyranny, and his pursuit of love, Pippin struggles to find something meaningful to do with his life. Highly relatable to the young emerging artists performing the show, Pippin explores the extraordinary journey of a young person reconciling whom he is while searching for how to commit himself to something he truly cares about.

For SBT’s younger audiences, SBT presents Honk! This delightful and award-winning adaptation of one of the world’s most beloved fables is a heartwarming celebration of what makes us unique. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ugly Duckling, the show tells the story of an odd-looking baby bird mistaken for a duck. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry cat. Along the way, our feathered hero meets a whole flock of unique characters, and discovers that being different is extraordinary!

Adapted from A CHRISTMAS CAROL by CHARLES DICKENS

Just one extraordinary actor telling a timeless story. Dickens’s famous tale about selfishness and selflessness is stripped down to its bare essence, forgoing the usual opulence of the holidays and focusing on what is of utmost importance. Be dazzled as one actor portrays over 35 distinct characters in this intimate, spirited evening of theatre that everyone in the family will love! Familiar characters such as Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future all spring to life with a treasure trove of life lessons for one and all.

Written by MADELEINE L’ENGLE, adapted by JOHN GLORE

Based on the classic fantasy novel, a young heroine leads her brother and a friend on a spectacular journey through space and time, from galaxy to galaxy, to save the world and rescue her father, who mysteriously disappeared while working on an astounding scientific concept. In a spectacular quest against the forces of evil, they encounter celestial beings who guide them through a “wrinkle” in space and time. While working together to save humanity, our enduring lead character strives to find herself along the way. In the end, we know two extraordinary  things for sure:  Love CAN overcome evil and there IS such a thing as a tesseract.
