This is the last weekend for families to see Valley Youth Theatre’s production of the Broadway musical “Peter Pan,” based on the children’s novel by J.M. Barrie about a little boy who never grows up. Here are a few things to keep in mind before you go.
We have our fair share of Disney animated favorites, but from time to time it’s fun to treat the family to a live theater production of a classic fairy tale. Valley Youth Theatre’s “Rapunzel,” playing Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through March 10, is a great option.
More than 300 Valley Youth Theatre supporters helped raise nearly $120,000 to fund education and outreach programs and six mainstage productions at The Most VYTal Event of the Season, the company’s 14th annual fundraiser.
Dog auditions for the production of "Annie" will take place from
9 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 7. There is no fee to participate in
the main stage productions but Valley Youth Theater asks that
families volunteer to help with set construction, costumes and more
during rehearsals and show performances June 10 to 29 at the Valley
Youth Theater, 525 N. First St. in Phoenix.
Alexander is having a bad day. A terrible day. A horrible day.
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is a
musical adaptation of Judith Viorst's tale of one of America's
feistiest characters. When Alexander's already trying day goes from
bad to worse (lima beans for dinner! Ick!) it's enough to make
anyone want to go to Australia. Alexander's struggles with life's
daily dramas will not only entertain but educate young audiences as
they identify with Alexander and the obstacles he encounters,
encouraging them to share their feelings and to realize that bad
days happen-even in Australia.
From Feb. 4 to 20 experience the enchantment as we follow Alice
down the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland! Regarded as one of the
greatest children's books ever written, Alice's madcap adventures
in Lewis Carroll's whimsical story will delight and engage children
and adults as she chases the White Rabbit, races the Dodo Bird, and
beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! With dozens of
wonderfully wacky characters, this is one exciting journey you
don't want to miss! Performances take place at Valley Youth
Theatre, 525 N. First St. Phoenix on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
during the month of February. Tickets are $20 for all seats. Call
