"There are two ways down one long road. One clear path to two conclusions. Does the story end, or never end? Does the secret fade, or is it everlasting?"

After adventuring beyond her white picket fence, “good girl” Winnie Foster meets the energetic teenager Jesse Tuck, who leads her on an unexpected, magical journey. Soon she is faced with an extraordinary question: If you could choose to live forever, would you? Based on the best-selling novel by Natalie Babbitt, this heartfelt Broadway musical is full of soaring melodies and mischief. Performed with a live orchestra!

"If only I could make my father understand. I don’t see how a world that makes such wonderful thing could be so bad. "

In a kingdom beneath the sea, King Triton’s youngest daughter Ariel yearns to have her questions answered about the human world. When she saves the handsome Prince Eric from drowning, Ariel begins to discover her own voice with the help of her friends – even after the tricky sea witch silences her. Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most beloved fairy tales, this classic will be given its own dose of NCT magic. Performed with a live orchestra!

Castle Crenshaw, a.k.a. Ghost, has been running his entire life, but for all the wrong reasons. Then one day he meets Coach, an Olympic medalist who sees his unique raw talent.

February 21-April 7, 2019
Created by Jonathan Rockefeller
Based on Eric Carle’s books

"One Sunday morning the warm sun cane up and – pop! – out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar."

Direct from Off-Broadway, four beloved classics — “Brown Bear, Brown Bear”, “Mister Seahorse”, “The Very Lonely Firefly”, and “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” — leap off the page and on to the stage right in front of your eyes brought to life by a menagerie of 75 incredible puppets.


April 25-May 19, 2019
By José Cruz González
Adapted from the book by Pat Mora

This production will be performed with sections of dialogue in Spanish and English with projected translations. 

"Libros, libros, libros I love to read. Libros, libros, libros that’s what I need."

Based on the true story of Mexican-American author and educator Tomás Rivera, this play, told in both Spanish and English, follows the son of migrant farm workers as he discovers a surprising world of possibility inside his local library thanks to a special librarian. This inspirational, theatrical biography proves that reading and respect can make anything possible.
