Moving from the city to a new house in the country can be tough. Henry can't find a playmate in his new neighborhood! Luckily, he's got Mudge, a great big, 182‑pound canine buddy, with whom he can share all kinds of adventures! Henry discovers that having a pet is a big responsibility - they need to be fed, they need to be taken out for walks, and of course they need lots of love and playtime! Henry teaches his new friend many tricks, but rolling over is one trick Henry just can't seem to teach Mudge. When Henry's cousin Annie comes for a visit, Mudge finally rolls over at her command! Henry thinks Mudge must love Annie more than him. Very upset, Henry runs away into the cold dark woods. Mudge follows the boy's scent into the forest. Will the two friends be reunited? Find out in this musical based on the best-selling series of books by Cynthia Rylant. (One hour in length; study guides available upon request.) TheatreworksUSA

Theatreworks USA from New York is proud to present We the People, an all-new musical revue that brings American Civics lessons to life and promises to make Social Studies exciting and accessible. Students will have a blast learning about the three branches of government, the First Amendment, presidential elections, democracy, the judicial process, and more. Barreling through a variety of musical styles relevant to today’s youth, including rock, rhythm-and-blues, and hip-hop, We the People will instill American pride in audiences of all ages, and perhaps even inspire them to get involved and make a difference.

For more than 50 years, Laura Ingalls Wilder's classic books have inspired young people to discover their own pioneering spirit and a love for America's heartland. Join Laura and the Ingalls family as they travel across the prairie in search of a little house they can call home. A true tomboy at heart, Laura shares her Pa's pioneering spirit and passion for the outdoors. Life on the frontier is often difficult for the Ingalls. The family is forced to move on when the United States government designates their land as Indian territory. They journey to Minnesota only to be faced with illness when scarlet fever strikes Mary, Laura's older sister, causing her to lose her sight. Laura becomes Mary's eyes to the world, and Mary shows her younger sister how to face life with strength and courage.
