We are happy to announce the 2022-23 Adventure Series of three educational and fun shows. We truly believe in the value of this educational programming and we are grateful to the Ruth St. John and John Dunham West Foundation for ongoing support of these live performances. Thank you for sharing the information below with the appropriate staff at your campus.

Pete the Cat’s Big Hollywood Adventure, Thursday, Feb. 2, 2023 (performances at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.) This Theater Works USA performance, geared for Grade 1, features one of the coolest cats… Pete! Lights! Camera! Action! When Pete the Cat and his buddy Callie sneak into the Hollywood Studios, they get lost in the world of the movies. Join Pete, Callie, Ethel the Apatosaurus, and Robo-Pete in this rockin’ new musical adventure that features several fun-filled Pete the Cat books including Cavecat Pete, Pete the Cat and the Treasure Map, and The Cool Cat Boogie.

The Magic School Bus, Lost in the Solar System, Wednesday, March 1, 2023 (performances at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.) This performance, perfect for Grade 3 students, is presented by Theatre Works USA. When the class gets lost on the way to the planetarium, Ms. Fizzle saves the day by blasting into outer space for an epic interplanetary field trip! Hop on the Magic School Bus for a musical adaptation of the popular series, and join the gang as they pull together (with lessons in communication, music, science, and social studies) to return safely to planet Earth.

The American Revolution, Tuesday, April 25, 2023 (performances at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.) This performance, appropriate for Grade 5 students, is presented by Theater Unspeakable. History in 50 minutes—seven actors, two feet off the ground, share 21 square-feet of space to recreate the entire American fight for independence from Lexington to Yorktown. Using only the actor’s bodies, voices and (pantomimed) cannons, the show evokes an epic time period in American history. Combining tongue-in-cheek humor with a dash of derring-do, The American Revolution displays Theater Unspeakable’s rowdy brand of bare-boned and imaginative physical theater.
