ArtsPower’s under-the-sea musical tells the story of Nugget, a minnow, and Fang, a shark, who get along swimmingly — until Nugget’s first day of minnow school. There, Nugget learns that minnows are supposed to be afraid of sharks! To regain Nugget’s trust, Fang takes desperate and hilarious measures. Nothing goes as planned. Fang is moping in deep waters when he notices that Nugget and his minnow schoolmates are caught up in some big trouble (and one very big net). Holy mackerel! Can Fang save the day and prove he’s a true friend?

Saturday, April 6 | 3 p.m. | Buy Tickets

This is a story about a girl and her Nan.

But as Rapunzel grows older and older, and her hair grows longer and longer, her curiosity grows bigger and bigger as she wonders what lies behind the distant horizon. Join us once upon a time and once upon a place in this re-telling of a classic fairy tale that celebrates life’s little adventures, the magic of growing up, and the strong love of family.
