WILD WEST!
April 6, 2019

Written and Directed by Jessica Brooke Pinsky
performed by the CHILDREN'S THEATRE OF HAMPTON ROADS

Many years ago, in the not-too-distant past, in a world almost exactly like our own, something else roams the land. Something rough. Something tough. Something rootin’ tootin’, cattle drivin’, yee-hawin’, and ready to bust some bucking broncos. Something... kind of smelly.

Greetings, fellow science fanatics! Welcome to SciTech Industries. Step into our lab and join us for an experiment or two! Worried about explosions? Don’t be! We’ve taken every precaution to ensure our students have a safe and educational experience. In case of emergencies that say, teleport one of us back to the Old West, we’ll just rebuild our time machine and get them back to the present lickety-split! A little bit of frontier frolicking never hurt a fly… we think! Of course, the last time our scientists traveled through time there were a few- minor- glitches... but, nothing to worry about! After all, surely they've worked out all the kinks by now. How many times can time travel go wrong?

Come along, little doggies, and join your favorite scientists for another unforgettable adventure through time and space: “Wild West!”, the final installment in CTHR’s Trilogy! series. For buckaroos of all ages (best enjoyed by cowpokes 4 and up).

CHASING MOTHER GOOSE
May 11, 2019

Written by Jessica Brooke Pinsky, Directed by Scott Quirk
performed by the CHILDREN'S THEATRE OF HAMPTON ROADS

The venerable poet Mother Goose currently presides over a library that houses every piece of literature in existence. Day and night she does her best to keep order and ensure peace among the shelves. But even under her no-nonsense watch, the books have a tendency to get out of hand. On a seemingly quiet night, the mad Hatter from Wonderland shows up, and when a copy of Moby Dick is returned with pages missing, Captain Ahab also arrives - to wreak vengeance on the creature that took his leg!

Mother Goose and the Hatter have no choice but to comb the other books for Ahab’s missing pages and put him back together before the library opens in the morning, all the while fleeing the amnesic Ahab on his misguided mission! This hilariously creative play, rich with audience interaction, literary celebrities, and touching moments, will delight audiences of all ages.

This play is appropriate for audiences of all ages, best enjoyed by those four years and up
