by Matt Cox
Director – Katie Shuter Rompala
Jun. 3-18, 2022
(Comedy; Ages 13+ rude/dark humor, language)
Puffs, or: Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic & Magic is a Potter-inspired comedy for anyone who has ever felt like a secondary character in someone else’s story. The play that “never goes more than a minute without a laugh” (Nerdist) gives you a new look at a familiar adventure from the perspective of three new heroes just trying to make it through magic school. Alongside them are the Puffs, a group of well-meaning, loyal rejects with a thing for badgers “who are so lovable and relatable, you’ll leave the theater wishing they were in the stories all along” (Hollywood Life). Their “hilariously heartfelt!” (Metro) and epic journey takes the classic story to new places and reimagines what a boy wizard hero can be. -MattCoxLand.com “Buy a ticket immediately. I can promise you won’t regret it.” -MuggleNet

Boise Little Theater and Boise Parks and Recreation have teamed up for another youth summer show! The timeless “Wizard of Oz” tale has been adapted into a dazzling musical. A cyclone carries Dorothy and Toto to the magical Land of Oz. When Dorothy’s house squashes the Wicked Witch of the East, she is ecstatically thanked by the liberated Munchkins and given permission to wear the witch’s powerful silver slippers. From there, Baum’s lovable characters -rubber-legged Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, and Tin Woodsman- join Dorothy on a journey to meet the great Oz. While on their trek, they battle the Wicked Witch of the West, who is determined to get revenge for the death of her sister.

The Book of Will
by Lauren Gunderson
Director – Paul Archibeque
Aug. 27-Sept. 11, 2021
(Comedy/Drama; Ages 13+ language)
“What if all the words were lost? William Shakespeare’s been dead for three years. His closest friends and fellow actors deeply miss him and his beautiful plays. When a pirated, badly botched Hamlet (“To be or not to be, there’s the point . . .”) plays on a nearby stage, they realize Shakespeare’s lines are disappearing into the forgetful memory of time. What they need is a book – a definitive copy of his original plays, but to make one, they’ll have to battle an unscrupulous publisher, a boozy poet laureate, and their own mortality. Lauren Gunderson’s look at Shakespeare’s First Folio is a lively, funny, poignant love letter to theatre and the printed word.” -Oregon Shakespeare Festival. “THE BOOK OF WILL… unequivocally announces Gunderson as a playwright with whom to be reckoned. It is, quite frankly, one of the best plays I have ever seen. It will bring tears of both laughter and sorrow to all but the most jaded audience member’s eyes. It is, in a word, a triumph.” -Boulder Weekly (CO).
Heathers: The Musical
Book, Music, and Lyrics by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy

But before she can get comfortable atop the high school food chain, Veronica falls in love with the dangerously sexy new kid J.D. When Heather Chandler, the Almighty, kicks her out of the group, Veronica decides to bite the bullet and kiss Heather’s aerobicized ass… but J.D. has another plan for that bullet. Heathers: The Musical was originally directed Off-Broadway by Andy Fickman and choreographed by Marguerite Derricks.

(Musical; All ages)
“Inspired by the twisted genius of Roald Dahl, the Tony Award-winning Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical is the captivating masterpiece from the Royal Shakespeare Company that revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. With book by Dennis Kelly and original songs by Tim Minchin, Matilda has won 47 international awards and continues to thrill sold-out audiences of all ages around the world.” -MTI Enterprises Inc.
by Michael Frayn
Director – Jeanna Vickery
5 12, 2022
(Farce; Ages 13+, language, adult situations)
A cult classic called “the funniest farce ever written!” A manic merry-go-round of actors rehearsing a British bedroom farce, a flop called Nothing’s On, complete with door slamming, intrigue on and offstage, and an errant herring. The New York Times calls it, “The most dexterously realized comedy ever about putting on a comedy. A spectacularly funny, peerless backstage farce. This dizzy, well-known romp is a festival of delirium.”
These Shining Lives
by Melanie Marnich
Director – Sarah Wright
Mar. 11-26, 2022
(Drama; Ages 13+)
Chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them. “[Marnich] has an ear for warm, natural dialogue that eschews snarky quips and truisms…the play’s linguistic honesty satisfies.” -Time Out Chicago.
God of Carnage
by Yasmina Reza
Director – Bradley Campbell
Apr. 22-May 7, 2022
(Dramatic Comedy; Ages 13+)
What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behavior of their children? A calm and rational debate between grown-ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name-calling, tantrums, and tears before bedtime? Boys will be boys, but the adults are usually worse– much worse. God of Carnage won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy and the Tony Award for Best Play.
