The competition is fierce, fast, funny and fun for all ages at this ingenious improv show that pits two teams of sharp-witted performers against each other in an all-out battle for comedy supremacy. With the audience providing suggestions and ultimately proclaiming winners, the squads are challenged to come up with scenes, bits and songs on the spot, in the spirit of TV's "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" A referee watches the action, calling fouls and keeping score, as the players compete in seven to 12 different improv games each time, out of a repertoire of more than 100. You'll never see the same show twice, and they keep it clean for the kids.

Few novels are as otherworldly and so uniquely special as "The Little Prince", the "kids book" that beat out "Ulysses", "Lolita" and "The Great Gatsby" in a recent ranking of the "100 Books of the 20th Century." Now Antoine de Saint-Exupery's classic comes to the stage in an imaginative new take from the New Repertory Theatre. "The Little Prince" tells the tale of an aviator who crashes in the Sahara. Stranded, he meets the mysterious Little Prince, who tells the aviator about his adventures among the stars. When the Little Prince and the aviator part ways, each leaves with a new understanding of how to look beyond the visible to find what's really essential in life. Audience members of all ages will be touched and enchanted by this musical adaptation directed by Ilyse Robbins.
