4:00 PM – $12/adults, $10/kids: Alejandro’s Olde Tyme Magik Showe, an hour-long wonder-filled one-man stand-up show with an emphasis on audience participation, visual magic, and physical comedy guaranteed to enchant and amuse the whole family.
7:00 PM – $18/adults, $14/kids: Professor Ossum Wonder Show. Designed in two acts, Pinard and company will offer a whimsical mix of theatre, sleight-of-hand, interactive comedy, and storytelling. Blending classic magic and comedy with a little help from volunteer assistants, Pinard draws spectators into his zany world of wonder where they leave the mundane world behind and inhabit a magical realm of the impossible and absurd where nothing is what it seems.
Tuesday, Feb 18
7:00 PM – $20/adults, $16/kids: It is 1975 and you are attending your 20 year high school reunion. In this interactive musical murder mystery you could reunite with your high school sweetheart, join the cheerleading squad or simply sit back and watch the action unfold around you. No matter what you choose, we will all go back in time to 1955 to solve the murder of… the Prom Queen!
Wednesday, Feb 19
7:00 PM – $15/adults, $10/kids: Snow White and Other Favorites, an evening of well-known stories done in Perry Alley Theatre’s inimitable style, including “Little Red Riding Hood,” “The Princess and the Pea,” “The Frog Prince,” sing-alongs and a break-dancing cat!
PERRY ALLEY THEATRE has become well-known for its zany originality and technical skills. Nominated for an Emmy (as well as being finalists at the International Festival of Film and Television), they are still best known for their live performances, having performed at the Smithsonian Institution, at Atlanta’s Center for Puppetry Arts, and at regional and national puppetry festivals both here and abroad.
Thursday, Feb 20
7:00 PM – $15/adults, $10/kids:
The Norman Magic Experience has been featured in 48 states and for more than 500,000 people live! Norman Ng was named “2011 Best Variety Act,” by Campus Activities Magazine. The show is an exciting fusion of magic, comedy and audience participation! It features never before seen magic, laugh out loud comedic situations and the best part… it stars you the audience!
Norman combines original and amazing magic tricks with his unique style of story-telling, action, and audience interaction. The curtain is pulled back and the audience is invited to a world where anything is possible. Clever scripting, strategic blocking, and dynamic body movements are all hallmarks to Norman’s signature performing style. Every word and every “surprise” moment is scripted and designed so it feels like it’s the first time performed to an audience. Every show is “Fresh.”
You Will Scream, Laugh and FREAK OUT!

So is HELP! – the region’s oldest and greatest (at least, according to their mums) Beatles tribute band, now in its 15th season of performances, delighting all ages at nightspots, festivals and town concerts throughout the region and beyond. Each band member sings songs associated with the corresponding Beatle, including some intriguing and seldom-heard archival and novelty material to provide a glimpse into the history of the British originals.
