The Secret of the Soap and Spin

Are there really secrets lurking in the dusty corners of the local laundromat? Melanie is a second grader who lives two apartments away from Victor, a fourth grader. They play together a lot — especially on laundry day. But when they meet a mysterious fifth grader named Annie, she challenges them to find out if the rumors are true: is the old, broken down blue dryer in the back of the local laundromat really a portal to another world? The trio goes on journey to see what they can discover about some people who have gone missing — including Victor's mother — without getting caught by “The Broom”, the grumpy, old guy who runs the laundromat. Everyone knows you can’t get inside a dryer, but no one knows what might come out of one! Graham’s newest play for Pollyanna Theatre is an imaginative and poignant story about children bravely coaching each other through the difficult (and sometimes soapy) waters of growing up. This play is intended for children grades 2 - 5.

13

Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out! ​Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain... or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!? ​Composed of a precocious cast, no character in 13 is older than the show's title! ​Please note: we ask for parental caution. 13 The Musical is rated PG-13 for mild language and adolescent content and situations. As the show is meant for teenagers, some of it's content reflects this. Characters deal with the ramifications of crushes and early exploration of dating. Please contact us at the office at 512-869-7469 ext 532 if you have any questions about the content before purchasing tickets. ​13 will be directed by guest artist Kristen Rogers, PhD, with choreography by Jesee Smart and Music Direction by Rose Yurcina. ​Performances Friday, May 18, at 7:00 pm, Saturday, May 19 at 7:00 pm, and Sunday, May 20 at 2:00 pm at the Palace Playhouse. All tickets are $5.

Peter and the Star Catcher

Tony-winning Peter and the Starcatcher upends the century-old story of how a miserable orphan comes to be The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (a.k.a. Peter Pan). A wildly theatrical adaptation featuring From marauding pirates and jungle tyrants to unwilling comrades and unlikely heroes, Peter and the Starcatcher playfully explores the depths of greed and despair... and the bonds of friendship, duty and love. ​ A young orphan and his mates are shipped off from Victorian England to a distant island ruled by the evil King Zarboff. They know nothing of the mysterious trunk in the captain’s cabin, which contains a precious, otherworldly cargo. At sea, the boys are discovered by a precocious young girl named Molly, a Starcatcher-in-training who realizes that the trunk’s precious cargo is starstuff, a celestial substance so powerful that it must never fall into the wrong hands. When the ship is taken over by pirates – led by the fearsome Black Stache, a villain determined to claim the trunk and its treasure for his own – the journey quickly becomes a thrilling adventure. ​ Direction and fight choreography by Adam Miller-Batteau. ​ Peter and the Starcatcher performs Friday, May 4, at 7:00 pm, Saturday, May 5, at 7:00 pm, and Sunday, May 6 at 2:00 pm at the Palace Playhouse. All tickets are $5.
