The Three Musketeers
All performances at 1 p.m.
Weekends, July 6-28

The famous swashbuckling, Alexandre Dumas story comes to life outdoors. It is a tale of heroism, treachery, close escapes, and above all, honor. D'Artagnan sets off for Paris in search of adventure. Sabine, his sister, the quintessential tomboy is sent with d'Artagnan to attend a convent school in Paris. However, she poses as a young man - d'Artagnan's servant - and quickly becomes entangled in her brother's adventures. Soon after reaching Paris, d'Artagnan joins forces with his heroes, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, the famous musketeers to defend the honor of the Queen of France. In so doing, he finds himself in opposition to the most dangerous man in Europe, Cardinal Richelieu, and Countess de Winter, known as the Milady.

Contains Violence: Sword Fights, deceit, and death, but appropriate for all ages (geared toward young boys and girls ages 6-14 who like action).

A Walk with Mark Twain
All performances at 1 p.m.
Weekends, September 7-29*

Mark Twain greets the audience and leads them along two of his famous stories: The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County and The Diaries of Adam and Eve.
The first story is a morality play that teaches lessons on pride and gambling. Jim Smiley, a man with all the luck in the world, finds his luck has run out when he gambles everything on a giant frog that he figures can’t lose. Then Mark Twain takes us back in time. He sets the story of the first couple in the early 1900’s Buffalo, NY at Niagara Falls. Adam and Eve figure out how to first deal with each other, then children, and life itself.

Appropriate for all ages (geared for children 2-102).

The Passion of Dracula

This version of the Dracula legend based on the 1897 Bram Stoker novel is set in the English countryside in 1911 where several village girls have died under mysterious circumstances. Dr. Seward presides over a nearby mental hospital and the locality has acquired a new resident, Count Dracula! A trio of doctors, a young reporter and a stouthearted English lord battle the Count for possession of the lovely heroine. With a dash of Holmesian sleuthing in this Baskerville hound country setting, our heroes save the heroine and dispatch the Count in the traditional manner. "A genuine old fashioned horror thriller." - N.Y. Daily News.

Appropriate for all ages (geared toward teens and young adults, but no inappropriate material).
