Lyle the Crocodile

Book and Lyrics by Kevin Kling
Music by Richard Gray

Based on Bernard Waber’s beloved book, Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, this musical tells the story of a friendly crocodile who turns up in a bathtub in an apartment in New York City’s Upper East Side. In the end, Lyle helps those around him learn that they should not judge others by how different they appear to be, but to love people (and crocodiles) for who they are!

Disney’s DESCENDANTS: The Musical

Music and Lyrics by: Madeline Smith

Book by: Nick Blaemire

Based on the popular Disney Channel Original Movies, Disney’s Descendants: The Musical is a brand-new musical comedy featuring the beloved characters and hit songs from the films!

It is present-day, and in the kingdom of Auradon, all of Disney’s beloved heroes and royalty are living happily ever after, safe from the terrifying villains and troublesome sidekicks they have banished to the magic-free Isle of the Lost. That is until Ben, the benevolent teenage son of Belle and King Adam (The Beast), offers a chance of redemption for the troublemaking offspring of the evilest villains. Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos – the children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella De Vil, and Jafar – are welcomed to Auradon Prep to attend school with the children of their parents’ sworn enemies. Now entering a completely foreign world and way of life, the four Villain Kids have a difficult choice to make: should they follow in their parents’ wicked footsteps or learn to be good?

Book by: Douglas Carter Beane

Music and Lyrics By: Jeff Lynne and John Farrar

Greek muse inspires love, laughter and the world’s first roller disco in this 1980s glitter explosion.

Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mount Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO! (Hey, it’s 1980!) But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation, and chaos abounds.
