A Musical Comedy
Reigning master of the X-box and junk food junkie, eleven-year-old Austin must face the long-term consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle when he learns his mother has been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. In partnership with The Horizon Foundation for New Jersey and ShapingNJ, this new musical comedy explores the challenges of one family learning how to make healthy choices together.
A new musical exploring how individual choices can have a global impact on climate and the environment
Gabi Goes Green! is an upbeat musical comedy that is sure to entertain student audiences, while also stressing the seriousness of climate change and the positive choices each of us can make to ensure a sustainable future. The play was commissioned by George Street Playhouse through the Victoria J. Mastrobuono New Work Development Program and a grant from Bloomberg.
New Kid remains the Touring Theatre's most successful program, addressing racism, prejudice, peer pressure, and conflict resolution. New Kid asks students to explore issues of: moving to a new place, being the outsider, making and keeping friends.
