The tranquility of a summer’s picnic along the riverbank is shattered by the incorrigible Toad and his friends, the winsome Mole and the stalwart Rat, coughing in his dusty wake but determined to reform him.  Toad’s bumpy path takes him to the Wide World where he is arrested and sent to prison.  Although he manages to escape disguised as a Washerwoman, he falls into the clutches of a ruthless Thief.  While searching for Toad, Mole and Rat become lost in the Wild Wood.  Saved by the stern but forgiving Badger, the three animals rescue Toad from the Thief in the rousing conclusion.  The charm of the story and the love the animals share for their world is underscored by delightful songs.

BOSTON READS will perform a reading of THE GIN GAME by D.L Coburn, performed by storied Boston actors M. Lynda Robinson and Richard McElvain who are also the founders of BOSTON READS.
The Pulitzer Prize Award winning play uses the card game as a metaphor for life. As an aging couple in a seedy nursing home play the game, the intimacies of their past spill forth like the cards from the deck as they reach out to make some sense of their damaged lives. It is, at once, very funny and deeply moving.

MY SHIP taps into the 1941 “Hit Parade” with songs like “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Boggie Woogie Bugle Boy,” and “The White Cliffs of Dover,” and explores the emotional climate of an American woman as it entered WWII. Derow revisits the music that comforted and uplifted a nation until there was peace “At Last.” Conceived by Derow, her Award-Winning Director Jeff Harnar, and the late Musical Director Barry Levitt, the show’s Musical Director/Pianist is Ian Herman, with local Cape Cod jazz musicians – Bart Weisman On Drums and Ron Ormsby On Bass.

UnBox – Movimento V inaugurates the fifth season of the Movimento Project, a regional, contemporary choreographic initiative that combines local talent with international connections in an emerging program of artistic residences, public workshops and multiple performances throughout the year in many local venues. This year’s performance exhibition at the Cape Cod Theatre Company offers an immersion experience in the nature and artifice, delimiting and supporting role that boxes offer our comparatively frail and flexible, fluid and free human anatomy, personality and creativity. Come join us for an all-ages hour of live music, contemporary dance, interaction and as always, fun surprises at this year’s Movimento V show – UnBox!
