The award winning musical satire that takes on the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, and municipal politics. A terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. Everyone must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. One heroic citizen decides he’s had enough and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

ELLIS ISLAND: Gateway to a Dream
Apr. 25
10:00 am - 11:00 am

Ellis Island served as the portal for immigrants coming into the USA from 1892 to 1954. Before its closing, an estimated 12 million people passed through on their way to a new life in America. This one-hour musical geared toward young audiences captures the essence of their journey.

Six professional actors dressed in period clothing weave this intriguing tale with dialogue and songs of their experiences traveling into America. They were filled with hopes and excitement to begin new lives, and some encountered obstacles along the way.

A wonderful supplement to the school curriculum, Ellis Island artfully tells the story of how our ancestors began to call America their home. Today, many U.S. citizens are descendants of those same immigrants. Because it relates to current events, audiences are in rapt attention as they relate to characters in the show.
