Dragons Love Tacos

By Ernie Nolan
Based on the book by Adam Rubin with illustrations by Daniel Salmieri

Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa… well, watch out!! The silly, dragon dancing journey about first impressions and trying new things is a recipe for laughs and fun!

Classes & Camps (except pods) held at MST – Rice Village, 2540 Times Blvd.

We have camp all year long at Main Street Theater!

 

“We had Main Street Theater bring one of their pod camps to our neighborhood during Thanksgiving week. It was simple to set up once we had our group assembled and Cindy showed up with all the materials and great activities planned. The kids met in an open area, practiced safe social distancing and conceived, directed and performed  their own play! They also played games, learned a bit of improv and did some crafts. The pod was super fun for them. Something a bit magical happened too because all of the kids really wanted to be there. It was really convenient for us parents because no time was needed to drive anywhere. We got to enjoy our children’s creative work at the end of the session, and they got a wonderful structured play time for creative expression with their friends. We would highly recommend Main Street Theater’s Pods to anyone interested.”

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Based on the MGM Motion Picture
Music and Lyrics by Richard M. Sherman ​& Robert B. Sherman
Adapted for the Stage by Jeremy Sams
Licensed Script Adapted by Ray Roderick

Caractacus Potts and his children, Jeremy and Jemima embark on the ride of a lifetime with their out-of-this-world car, the one – the only – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang! Based on the beloved film, this “Truly Scrumptious” musical is a high-flying, fun-filled adventure for the entire family.

Recommended for Kindergarten and older.

What audiences are saying:

“I am a full on LOVER of the original ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.’ I was ready to sing ALL the songs (My car is even nicknamed Toot Sweet)! I was also ready to be potentially disappointed if the play didn’t live up to the movie I love so much. But the production was phenomenal!!!! The actors and actresses were so extraordinarily talented, the set was beautiful – it was truly a wonderful experience!” -Carynn H.

Miss Nelson Is Missing

Miss Nelson Is Missing

Book, Music & Lyrics by JOAN CUSHING
Based on the book “Miss Nelson is Missing” and
“Miss Nelson is Back” by HARRY ALLARD
Illustrated by JAMES MARSHALL

“The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling. Paper planes whizzing through the air. They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school.” But when Miss Nelson disappears and the mean-looking substitute Miss Viola Swamp takes her place, the children are so desperate they hire a detective to find Miss Nelson in this wacky whodunit hit!

Recommended for Kindergarten and older.
