For six students, class is back in session when they take a summer school trip with their teacher to the local wax museum to help preserve the past. Between a hilarious love triangle involving Cleopatra and Henry VIII and a widespread hunt for buried treasure with Blackbeard and Butch Cassidy, it will be a trip for the history books! We recommend this production for ages 6 and older.

March 12: Jack and The Beanstalk
Fe-fi-fo-fum. A timely version of the classic children’s tale about the young lad that doesn’t know beans about trading, but still manages to climb his way to the top.

From real-life spy gadgets to the stories behind the coolest secret agents in movies, the International Spy Museum is the first and only public museum in the United States dedicated solely to the world of espionage. Upon arrival, you’ll be given a secret identity, which you’ll use to test your spy skills throughout the experience. Then, you’ll explore a series of themed rooms, where you’ll hear historic tales, examine artifacts and participate in activities. Get ready for exhibits like “Spies Among Us”, which focuses on WWII-era German and Russian spy rings, and “Exquisitely Evil”, a tribute to the villains of cinema’s most famous spy — James Bond. “Exquisitely Evil” features more than 100 film artifacts from both old and new Bond movies, plus interactive exhibits that allow you to take over the controls of a villain’s lair, brave the depths of a virtual shark tank, play spy vs. spy with other visitors, disarm a missile before time runs out and more.
