Summer Theatre from Mainstage

by Press Release | Jun 30, 2005
Summer Theatre from Mainstage Mainstage Center for the Arts announces a great Summer Theatre Season designed for the young and the young at heart in a fully air conditioned, handy cap accessible theatre where every seat is a good one.

The season opens on a tropical island where the storytellers unfold a Caribbean Fairy Tale in ONCE ON THIS ISLAND. Then travel to Agrabah, where every beggar has a story in the Disney version of ALADDIN, Jr. Don’t let the travel stop there, continue onto England where OLIVER, a poor orphaned boy sings his way into your heart. Then return here to the states to feast upon the high lights of some great music found in COLE, a musical tribute to the life and times of Cole Porter and BROADWAY FOR KIDS ( or those who think they are) . Speaking of feasting, the warning is out “Don’t feed the plant!’ from the Mainstage production of LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS as he enjoys eating and singing a little too much.

The season is completed by some wonderful one time only performances including Dance Explosion Extravaganza, a Premiere Film Night and the Harmony Bon Voyage Concert bidding farewell to 45 talented young people as they take their show on the road to entertain audiences in Universal Studios and Disney World.

Great shows! Great seats! Great ticket prices, all in the Dennis Flyer theatre, Camden County College, Blackwood, NJ. Mainstage Center for the Arts also offers season tickets and group rates. So visit us on line at or call (856) 227-3091.
