Event Information

Appropriate for Mamas, Papas, and Young Cubs of all ages, in this live musical production filled with fun songs and dancing, the Berenstain Bears learn important life lessons. Brother gets a bad grade on a test at school. At first, he tries to hide his troubles but soon realizes opening up to his family is the best way to help solve his problems. Sister gets a little carried away as she starts saying "Hello" to everyone she meets at the Village Green. Finally, when Doc Grizzly points out that the Berenstain Bears are eating way too much junk food, it is a tough pill to swallow, especially for Papa, who rips his overalls (exposing his red polka dot underwear!) trying to show off how fit he is. Everyone's secret is revealed when Mama finds Brother's test, Papa's junk food wrappers, and Sister's new friend, Mr. Frog, who she snuck into the house from the Village Green. Using the iconic stories and imagery of the books, you and your family will see Bear Country come to life on stage while learning about the importance of honesty, health, and safety. In the end, it becomes clear to each of the Berenstain Bears that what truly matters is family.

Fall Children’s Show
October 25th
Alice in Wonderland and Pied Piper of Hamelin
2pm matinee
7 pm evening performance

Alice in Wonderland
Music from Le Tombeau de Couperin by Maurice Ravel
Choreography by Alice Reid
The tale and her adventures in Wonderland featuring favorite characters like The Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, and the Cheshire Cat.

The Pied Piper of Hamelin is a colorful ballet featuring an evocative score by Edvard Grieg, including the haunting "Hall of The Mountain King”

While Pied Piper is timely for Halloween (children as well as rats are led away from their village), artistic elements, including the unforgettable backdrop by Alice Reid, the comic relief provided by the clownish Mayor and his two clumsy sidekicks, and the virtuoso dancing displayed by the Gypsies, Townspeople and the Pied Piper himself, reassuringly demonstrate that this is all make-believe.
