Disney's The Little Mermaid  
Players Club of Swarthmore Disney's The Little Mermaid
 
Disney's The Little Mermaid invites your family on a magical journey "Under the Sea" with Ariel, a mermaid who's tired of flipping her fins in her aquatic kingdom alongside her crabby sidekick, Sebastian. Ariel dreams of living in the fascinating world on dry land and will go to great lengths to get there, trading in her tail for human legs with some "help" from a sea witch named Ursula, in order to be by the side of the handsome Prince Eric. Based on the beloved Hans Christian Andersen tale and the classic animated film, with music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, this production of the fishy fable will capture your heart with irresistible songs like "Kiss the Girl," "Part of Your World" and more at the Players Club of Swarthmore.
   
The Fantasticks  
The Eagle Theatre The Fantasticks
 
There's a reason that the original off-Broadway production of The Fantasticks ran an astonishing 42 years -- it's pretty much got it all, from romance, comedy and action to heartbreak and drama, not to mention a great score. It also somehow manages to remain ever current. In fact, part of the plot revolves around a much-discussed wall, which keeps young lovers Matt and Luisa apart -- until their scheming dads get involved. Featuring the beloved songs "Try to Remember," "They Were You" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain," this new staging of the always entertaining show at The Eagle Theatre in Hammonton will no doubt capture all the moonlight and magic that makes it an enduring classic.

Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother.

The magic of Barrie's classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is "far and away the best musical of the year!" (NPR).

My Fair Lady  
Sedgwick Theater My Fair Lady
 
In My Fair Lady, Henry Higgins, a celebrated professor of phonetics, makes a bet that he can pass off a lower-class flower girl from Covent Garden as a duchess at the Embassy Ball. By dressing her in expensive clothing, improving her manners and teaching her how to speak correctly, Higgins transforms Eliza Doolittle into a lady. But it isn't long before Higgins becomes enamored with his creation, now the most eligible lady in London. Adapted from George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion, My Fair Lady explores who owns the English language, what remains of the 20th century's rigid class system and what defines independence for a modern woman. Enjoy this Quintessence Theatre Group production at Philadelphia's Sedgwick Theater.
