2019-20 SEASON
RETURN TO SENDER
By Marisela Treviño OrtaBased on the novel Return to Sender by Julia Alvarez

 Eleven-year-old Tyler Paquette is the son of generations of farmers. Eleven-year-old Mari Cruz is the Mexican born daughter of undocumented migrant workers. When Mari’s family is hired to help save Tyler’s family’s farm from foreclosure, both young people are forced to confront the complexities of immigration and citizenship. Marisela Treviño Orta’s adaptation of Julia Alvarez’s award-winning novel is a powerful reminder how young people can reach hands across cultural differences and find understanding.

Book and Lyrics by Marcy HeislerMusic by Zina Goldrich
There’s something mysterioso about Sophie Kringle’s glamorous great aunt. She serves Christmas cookies at teatime, even in July! Her penthouse at the Bing Cherry Hotel glitters with Christmas lights all year long. There’s also that secretive “business trip” every year around the holidays. Determined to get to the bottom of Auntie Claus’ eccentric ways, Sophie embarks on an adventure that leads straight to the heart of the holidays.
A world premiere holiday musical event for the whole family commissioned for Nashville audiences by award winning writing team Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich (Netflix’s Julie’s Green Room, Ever After, Junie B. Jones).
SECRET SOLDIERS: CIVIL WAR HEROINES IN DISGUISE
By Wendy Lement
While the Civil War rages on outside the walls of the Marine U.S.A. General Hospital, another conflict arises inside. A nurse has discovered that injured Private Lyons Wakeman is actually Sarah Wakeman, a woman! Should the hospital registry be changed to prove that women can fight in battle? Or should it stay intact so Sarah can receive her earned pension and her family avoid shame?
Based on over 250 military accounts of women who fought as Union soldiers, the audience will hear testimony from historical characters like Harriet Tubman and members of the first African American regiment, act as jury, and deliver the verdict on Private Lyons’ fate.
HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN
Music and Lyrics by Frank LoesserAdditional Lyrics and Book by Timothy Allen McDonald

13-year-old Christian Andersen is the first commoner ever chosen by the King of Denmark to study at the Royal Academy, but he isn't sure he wants to go. He'll have to move to Copenhagen and live without his parents. Royal students have shoes without holes in them...and books; Christian can't even afford paper. Plus his new teacher is rumored to be meaner than a sea witch.
Based on the real life of Hans Christian Andersen, this world premiere musical, featuring a score by legendary Broadway composer Frank Loesser and an original libretto by Timothy Allen McDonald, follows Hans’ journey from poor storyteller to becoming one of the most celebrated writers of all time.


PETE THE CAT
Based on the Pete the Cat series of books by Kimberly and James DeanMusic by Will AronsonBook and Lyrics by Sarah Hammond
When Pete the Cat gets caught rocking out after bedtime, the cat-catcher sends him to live with the Biddle family to learn his manners—and boy does he get the whole family rocking. The family except for young Jimmy Biddle, the most organized 2nd grader on planet earth. The last thing Jimmy needs is some groovy cat in his life, changing his family and turning everything upside down. But when Jimmy draws a blank in art class, it turns out Pete is the perfect friend to help him out. Together, they set out on a mission to help Jimmy conquer 2nd grade art—all the way to Paris and back in a VW Bus!
