Merchant Hall

How does nine-year-old Elmer Elevator rescue a baby dragon held captive on Wild Island? With pluck, chewing gum, lollipop sticks, and rubber bands, of course! In celebration of the 70th anniversary of Ruth Stiles Gannett’s charming adventure book, My Father’s Dragon, Enchantment Theatre Company brings to life the story of a compassionate and courageous boy and his unlikely friendship with a splendid yellow and blue-striped dragon. For nearly twenty years, Philadelphia-based Enchantment Theatre Company has produced original works based on classic children’s literature, using its distinctive blend of puppets, masks, creative scenic effects, and original music. “Everything about this world-class production is inventive and endearing; it fully captures the spirit of the beloved stories, the essence of childhood, and the imagination of the audience, both young and old. (Phindie.com, Philadelphia, PA) ∙ Recommended for ages 5–10; Grades K–5  ∙ Tickets: $15 Adults / $5 Children [Buy Tickets]

Ever wonder how they did that? Now the whole family can get the inside scoop and discover the science and secrets to making movie magic in this interactive and explosive show. Live on stage, join special effects professionals who’ve worked on action-packed blockbusters like The Dark Knight RisesGuardians of the GalaxyPhantom of the Opera, and Game of Thrones for thrilling and revealing insights that bring the audience closer to the action than ever before. Feel the heat from an onstage inferno, marvel at gruesome sci-fi monsters, be blown away by apocalyptic weather, and hold on tight through huge explosions! “Be prepared to be stunned. This really is a show unlike what you’ve seen before.” (Essex Chronicle)

Bedtime is approaching, and this team of construction vehicles needs to get their rest. But Crane Truck is getting cranky, Cement Mixer takes too long with bath time, and Dump Truck just isn’t sleepy! Excavator and Bulldozer find that preparing for bed is a job in itself! Will they ever get some shut-eye before tomorrow’s day of work? A world premiere musical based upon the New York Times best-selling picture book about construction vehicles by author Sherri Duskey Rinker and illustrator Tom Lichtenheld demonstrates the importance of teamwork, follow-through, hard work, and bedtime rituals. Founded in 2004, the Bay Area Children’s Theatre works to enrich children’s lives, inspire their imagination, and introduce them to lifelong enjoyment of theatre.
