WINTER FESTIVAL 2017
January 25 – February 5, 2017

 This year, the young company presents four fantastic Winter Festival shows! Family-friendly The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley Junior takes us on an incredible adventure all across the globe, while The Emperor’s New Clothes teaches us to open our eyes to what’s right in front of us! Mary Poppins uses magic, common sense, and a spoonful of sugar to teach the entire Banks family to value one another. Lastly, the dark and edgy Sweeney Todd shows us just how far some will go for those they love.

This audition-based program for students in grades 1-12 culminates in performances on Stoneham Theatre’s stage. Anyone can audition, and free workshops prepare seasoned actors and newbies alike!

Student matinees available. Please contact Carol Dempsey, Director of Sales, carol@stonehamtheatre.org or
