Imaginary Friends: Legend of Sinnissippi Park

A world premiere production with magic and wonderment, the play begins with 13 year old Jack McCall learning some very bad news about his health. His best friend Waddy is not as concerned as he is, since you hear stories of people getting over this illness all the time. From there, reality blends with fantasy as Jack becomes convinced that he needs to find his way back to the magical park and the imaginary friends from his childhood. An elf named Pick along with an owl, a troll, and a ghost challenge Jack to an adventure to save the park from an evil imprisoned in a massive tree. But this adventure may not even be real, so what does facing this adversary in the park have to do with Jack’s sickness anyway?

Forbidden Broadway

Forbidden Broadway is the fall-down-funny musical roast of Broadway – and now it’s coming to Starlight Indoors with a new season, new victims and new laughs! Just when Broadway thought it was safe from comedy writer Gerard Alessandrini, he returns with new targets like Pippin and Kinky Boots that join favorites including Wicked and The Book of Mormon. This Broadway parody has been performed in more than a dozen different forms since 1982. Whether you’re a seasoned theatre-goer or new to Broadway, Forbidden Broadway is your one-stop ticket to non-stop laughs.
