Based on one of Roald Dahl’s most poignantly quirky stories, James and the Giant Peach JR. is a brand-new take on this "masterpeach" of a tale about courage and self-discovery.

C-RHYME AND PUN-ISHMENT by Jane Jeffries and Jim Jeffries

Presented by London Youth Theatre Education

In the nursery rhyme justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups — the detectives, who investigate the crime, and the magistrates, who prosecute the defenders. These are their rhymes. The Inspector and the Punnish Sir (Yes, he’s always scrambling for egg puns!) have been called in to investigate a crime scene where a Mister Humpty Dumpty has been found shattered and fowl play is suspected. Can they solve the c-rhyme? With hilarious musical numbers like “Mountain of Love,” “Eggicide,” and “What the HONK Is Going On?,” the yolk’s on you if you think this tongue-in-cheek musical is for young children. There are so many puns and plot twists in this Law and Order spoof, even the playwrights were surprised by the ending!

Iphigenia in Aulis by Euripides

Directed by Kaitlyn Rietdyk

Presented by New Stage & London Community Players

Paris has run off to Troy with Helen. The Achaen fleet is waiting in the straights of Aulis with its ships ready to sail after her, but they remain stranded, without so much as a breeze to fill their sails. After consulting the seer Kalchas, the Achaen leaders learn this is no fluke in the weather; it is punishment meted out by the goddess Artemis. Agamemnon, general of the army and King of Mycenae, has caused her some offense. For killing one of Artemis' sacred deer, Agamemnon will have to kill something he loves; his eldest daughter, Iphigenia.

Written by the great Greek Tragedian Euripides over 2000 years ago, Iphigenia in Aulis circles issues that we still face today. Edward Einhorn’s modern translation is poetic, but accessible. Euripides’ plays tell stories of myth and legend, but the struggles, loss, heartache and victories of his characters are entirely identifiable, and very human.

How do we want to be remembered? How much is a single life worth? Who gets to decide, and how do we live with that choice? Iphigenia in Aulis explores all of these questions, without providing any easy answers.
