Play Productions & Selected Current Projects:

A Sick Day for Amos McGee

Based on the picture book by Philip C. Stead and illustrated by Erin E. Stead. Commissioned as part of the Kindness Project, premiered in 2019. Opening production for the 75th Season of the Children's Theatre of Charlotte Aug 25 - Sept 4, 2022, followed by a regional tour.

"Friends come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In this heart-warming story about the joys of friendship, Amos McGee knows friends can come in all sorts of species, too. Every day, Amos visits his animal friends at the zoo, playing chess with an elephant, reading stories to an owl who’s afraid of the dark and caring for a particularly shy penguin. One day, though, Amos doesn’t show up! What will the animals do to repay the kindness shown to them by their friend? Lively and engaging puppets were designed for this show in conjunction with the work of our playwright."

The Seedling 

An original, immersive, site-specific new work for families and young audiences devised by students and faculty of the Kennesaw State University Department of Theatre and Performance Studies, through a partnership with Smith-Gilbert Gardens. The aim of this unique project is to create a space in which families and communities can connect with one another through nature in this beautiful local space.

Join the Tree Spirits for a Spring festival celebrating the birth of their brand-new seedling! Help the various creatures of the garden find the perfect gift to welcome new life into the community.

Test audiences are invited to join us at SGG on Saturday, April 30 from 11am-12pm to help us develop our story in its earliest stages. Contact SGG for details. We are looking forward to a larger workshop in the fall, with a Spring 2023 premiere.

The Lion and the Little Red Bird

Based on the picture book written and illustrated by Elisa Kleven. Children's Theatre of Charlotte (NC). Will close the 75th season of Children's Theatre of Charlotte, June 1-10, 2023 with an associated regional tour.

 

"This delightful play tells the story of an inquisitive bird and a compassionate lion, an unlikely friendship to say the least. Why does Lion’s tail keep changing colors? Little Red Bird’s curiosity is piqued, and she sets out to unravel the mystery! Preschoolers will love this charming story, told with a mix of actors and puppets -- perfect for this young age."
