The Secret Garden and Shrek the Musical
The Secret Garden, which we will perform this coming fall, is based on a novel from 1911 by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The musical premiered on Broadway in 1991 and ran for more than two years, for a total of 709 performances.
Shrek the Musical, which will be our 2015 spring show, is based on the DreamWorks film Shrek and William Steig’s 1990 book Shrek! The original Broadway production opened in 2008 and ran for over a year, before starting a tour of the United States in 2010, getting re-vamped for West End in 2011, and being staged internationally, starting with a 2010 Israel production.

Quotes from our Seussical audience
We’ve had some great reviews come in from our Seussical audience, some of which we wanted to share with you:
“I thought the show today was exceptional!! I have seen many of your productions, and in my humble opinion, this one really was terrific! Voices, dance, all, just wonderful and my two granddaughters would agree! My granddaughters are 4.5 and nearly 7, the 7 yr old has been coming for a long time, but the younger one, not as many times, and she is an active gal, usually hard to sit still, but she was mesmerized throughout the performance. I was surprised, and delighted.”
“What an amazing show. We all absolutely loved it. Quite possibly Four Season’s best show yet!”
“My niece and nephew loved it. I thought my 4 year old nephew may be afraid or restless but he was wide-eyed the entire time. Didn’t say one word!”
“Brilliant cat role… He is the cabaret emcee and… Shone. Loved the whole show.”
“Our family loved this show! The direction was artful, using time and place really well with the people in WhoVille moving as one when the flower they lived on moved this… and then that way… and young JoJo appearing from seemingly everywhere! Very clever. The singing, choreography and acting was great. A wide range of ages and experience all pulled together under strong leads, creative sets and costumes that would make Seuss proud!”
