    Inspired by Oscar Wilde's The Happy Prince,this play is a hip, humorous and heartwarming parable about sacrifice and the lessons of true friendship. Prince Oskar is the spirit of a shiny, red, classic Corvette convertible—without a care in the world. But, placed as a monument high above the city, he alone sees the suffering below—a young girl conflicted by feelings of inferiority, a young boy without a home living in the streets, a writer who has lost the desire to write. With the help of a wise-cracking sparrow named Boid, the prince makes it his mission to help the townspeople. Learn More

    A mean witch dares a frilly little fairy to prove there's such a thing as happiness. So the fairy brings a scarecrow to life and promises to make him a real man if he can find happiness. It's a strange search, sometimes comical, sometimes sad. The scarecrow meets a variety of characters, each providing an insight into human relations as well as excellent roles for your actors and actresses. The scarecrow's search evokes a little smile, a little fright and perhaps a little tear. What is happiness? Philosophers have struggled with this question for centuries. But sometimes answers are found by simple people with humble aims. Learn More
