Bilbo, one of the most conservative of all Hobbits, is asked to leave his large, comfortable home in the ground in order to set off as chief robber in an attempt to recover an important treasure. It's the last thing that any sensitive Hobbit would want to do, but great benefit eventually results—not only for Bilbo but for all of the Hobbits who inhabit Middle Earth. Don't miss this show about majic, friendship, and the triumph of Good over Evil. Fire & Light Academy presents Patricia Gray's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkein's The Hobbit on Friday, November 22 at 7 PM and Saturday, November 23 at 2 and 7 PM on the Canterbury High School stage.
The BEST CHRISTMAS PAGEANT EVER
The Herdmans are the worst kids in the history of the world--so when they crash Sunday school and demand parts in the Christmas pageant, the whole town panics. There's not supposed to be fighting or cigar-smoking in Bethlehem, and while these kids have never even heard the Christmas story, they definitely have rewrites! It's up to first-time director Grace and the Reverend to help their community see the Christmas story and the Herdman kids through new eyes in this buoyant musical adaptation of the funny and touching holiday classic. Fire & Light Academy presents The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, the new musical by Jahnna Beecham and Malcolm Hillgartner, on Friday, December 13 at 7 PM, and Saturday, December 14 at 2 and 7 PM, on the Canterbury High School stage.
the music man
When Master showman Harold Hill is in town, he's got “seventy-six trombones” in tow. Can upright, uptight Marian, the pretty town librarian, resist his powerful allure? The story follows the magnetic, fast-talking traveling salesman, Harold Hill, as he cons the people of River City, Iowa, into buying instruments and
uniforms for a boys' band he vows to organize. The catch? He doesn't know a trombone from a treble clef. The Music Man is family entertainment at its best - a bold, brassy show that will have the whole town atwitter! Fire & Light Academy presents Meredith Willson's The Music Man, on Friday, January 17 at 7 PM and Saturday, January 18 at 2 and 7 PM on the Canterbury High School stage.
NEW LOCATION! All performances are held at:
