THE CHRISTMAS POST

DEC 13-15, 2019 | It's early on Christmas Eve, 1947, in Homesboro, Indiana. Hattie McGee's "newsies" are hawking the morning edition of The Christmas Post and Herzog's Department Store is about to open. Maxwell Seldon, sales manager, is bracing for his biggest sales day ever. Elliot Herzog, Jr, owner of Herzog's, can smell money in the air. The carolers from the tiny Central Avenue Community Church are just hoping for enough donations to keep their soup kitchen open. And Alice Garfield is on a collision course with disaster. A young widow whose faith and pocketbook are both stretched to the limit, Alice is desperately trying to find "a little more Christmas" as a seasonal sales person at Herzog's. This family-friendly, faith-filled musical will have you laughing and crying as the citizens of Homesboro each try to create their own perfect Christmas. With Broadway-style production numbers, heart-felt ballads, and Christmas favorites, this sweet Christmas musical is a sure way to get into the Christmas spirit! Perfect for all ages!

MEREDITH WILLSON'S THE MUSIC MAN

MAY 1-3, 2020 | Meredith Willson's The Music Man follows fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and uniforms for a boys' band that he vows to organize - this, despite the fact that he doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. His plans to skip town with the cash are foiled when he falls for Marian, the librarian, who transforms him into a respectable citizen by curtain's fall. This award-winning, critically acclaimed Broadway classic is an all-American institution, thanks to quirky characters, charmingly predictable dramatic situations, and a one-of-a-kind, nostalgic score of rousing marches, barbershop quartets, and sentimental ballads, which have become popular standards. By turns funny, warm, romantic, and touching, The Music Man is family entertainment at its best!

ROBIN HOOD AND HIS MERRY MEN

NOVEMBER 1-3, 2019 | Prince John has decreed that the citizens of Nottingham pay weekly taxes or face the penalty of death. His decrees are enforced by the evil Sheriff of Nottingham. The citizens think that all hope is lost until they hear word of a noble hero, Robin Hood of Locksley. Robin Hood, with the help of his merry men (which are mostly girls) robs from the rich, gives to the poor, and saves the fair Maid Marian. This comic retelling of the classic story includes plenty of slapstick, prop comedy, and laughs galore. You won't want to miss it!

THE WIZARD OF OZ

APRIL 3-5, 2020 | Dorothy Gale, a young girl living on a Kansas farm with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, dreams of escaping her mundane life.

This rendition, faithful to the famous movie version of the story, contains all your favorite songs, including "Over The Rainbow," "Follow The Yellow Brick Road," "We're Off To See The Wizard," and "Merry Old Land of Oz." Come with Circle Theatre Kids as we share Dorothy's amazing journey, celebrating the joy and healing power of home.
