Blue Marigold
Most enjoyed by ages 10 and up

Written by Mabelle Reynoso (she/her/ella), a multidisciplinary storyteller who has devoted her artistic career to building connections in communities through storytelling. Since 2004, Mabelle has been a teaching artist for the nonprofit arts education organization Playwrights Project. Her own art is largely informed by her work with underserved and marginalized populations, including Spanish-speaking immigrants, expectant teens, foster youth, and justice-involved youth and adults. 

Blue Marigold is part of the TYA BIPOC Superhero Project, an initiative dedicated to promoting and celebrating the amazing stories being created by TYA playwrights across the United States that explore the notion of Superheroes while, at the same time, explore the issues that are our youth communities of color are encountering and struggling with.

Blue Marigold is part mystery, part action thriller, and part high school drama, reminding us that with great power comes great responsibility.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Most enjoyed by ages 3 and up

The holiday classic soars from screen to stage in this LIVE musical adaptation of the beloved television special. Because of his shiny nose, Rudolph doesn’t feel like he belongs in Christmastown and sets off to find a place that accepts him. Along his journey, he encounters fellow misfits, only to realize that home is where he has belonged the whole time. When a storm threatens to keep Santa’s sleigh from taking flight, it’s up to Rudolph to save Christmas!
