Animal characters in a coloring book are thrilled when a little boy begins to embellish them with crazy colors and off-the-wall flourishes. But when the boy’s older sister begins coloring other pages in more lifelike hues, social divisions begin to form and friendships are challenged. Can the animals learn not to judge each other based on looks or color? The Coloring Book touches on many issues that affect young people: Bullying, racism, peer pressure, conformity, and the need for acceptance. It handles ugly subjects without being ugly itself, and its darker moments are never too dark for young audiences. Most importantly, while it strives to teach empathy, it never forgets to entertain.
Clue: The Musical
by Tom Chiodo, Peter DePietro, Wayne Barker, Galen Blum and Vinnie Martucci
March 27-28 and April 3-4 • 7:30 pm
March 28-29 and April 4-5 • 2:00 pm
The internationally popular game is now a fun-filled musical that brings the world’s best-known suspects to life and invites the audience to help solve the mystery: who killed Mr. Boddy, in what room, and with what weapon. The audience receives forms to help them deduce the solution from clues given throughout the fun-filled evening. Three audience members choose from cards representing the potential murderers, weapons, and rooms; there are 216 possible solutions! Only one hard-nosed female detective is qualified to unravel the merry mayhem. Comic antics, witty lyrics, and a beguiling score carry the investigation from room to room. Even after the culprit confesses, a surprise twist delights the audience. This colorful crowd-pleaser was devised by the authors of Murder at Rutherford House and other popular interactive entertainments.
