AMAHL and the NIGHT VISITORS
A Christmas favorite, Amahl and the Night Visitors is the story of Amahl, a young peasant shepherd boy who can only walk with the aid of a staff. He has seen a truly strange and wondrous star outside. Soon, Amahl and his Mother are visited by three kings, in search of a very special king.

MAN of LA MANCHA
A play-within-a-play, the beloved musical MAN of LA MANCHA is the story of the author of Don Quixote, Miguel de Cervantes, aged and dying, thrown into a dungeon in Seville to await trial by the Spanish Inquisition. Donning makeup and costume, Cervantes and his faithful manservant transform themselves into Don Quixote and Sancho Panza and proceed to play out the inspiring story with the participation of the prisoners as other characters.
