Grace for President

Based on the book by Kelly DiPucchio
Script, Music & Lyrics by Joan Cushing

Directed by Jaclyn Hofmann
Musical Direction by Ann-Carol Pence
Choreography by Jen MacQueen

Current day reality collides with popular youth fiction. Aurora Learning Library presents a musical adaptation of Grace for President based on the book by Kelly DiPucchio. The story centers on plucky Grace Campbell, a third-grader frustrated by the lack of female faces in the White House. Grace inspires a school election and all is well until the most popular boy runs against her. Through the campaign grind, Grace and her classmates discover what it takes to be the best candidate and find fun in the wonderful world of politics. With performances literally days away from an election with the first female presidential nominee in US history, it ties directly into current events with a civics lesson so fun the students won’t realize how much they are learning.

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Music by George Stiles
Book & Lyrics by Anthony Drewe

Directed by Justin Anderson
Musical Direction by Ann-Carol Pence
Choreography by Jen MacQueen

The Three Billy Goats Gruff is a new musical from George Stiles and Anthony Drewe the, musical team that brought us Mary Poppins, The Three Little Pigs, and last year’s Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Things are great for gruff little goats, Baby, Middle and Big as they gaze happily under the loving care of Little Bo-Frilly. That is until a drought turns the ground from lush green to a dreadful shade of brown. With food becoming scarce, the gang makes the decision to cross a bridge to the other side of the valley, where lush green grass awaits. But under the bridge, lives a Troll who’s favorite food is goat, Yikes! Don’t miss this rock and “troll” musical with catchy tunes and laugh-out-loud moments that will have students in stiches!
