The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in
1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a
nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination
of magic and common sense, she must teach the family members how to value each
other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable
adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones upon whom she has a
profound effect. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who
advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

Eastlight is thrilled to partner with D & D Dance Company to
bring you the ultimate show-biz musical! 42ND STREET is a celebration of
Broadway, Times Square, and the people who make the magic of musical theatre.
Aspiring chorus girl Peggy Sawyer comes to the big city from Allentown PA, and
soon lands her first big job in the ensemble of a glitzy new Broadway show. But
just before opening night, the leading lady breaks her ankle. Will Peggy be able
to step in and become a star? The score is chock-full of Broadway standards,
including “You’re Getting To Be A Habit With Me,” “Dames,” “We’re In the Money,”
“Lullaby of Broadway,” “Shuffle Off to Buffalo” and “Forty-Second Street.”

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow
White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that
is anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know. When these
royal renegades toss off their tiaras, this hilariously subversive,
not-for-the-kiddies musical cleverly reveals what really happened ‘ever after’!
