Children's Theatre, Musical
"Giselle la Trent the Gazellephant"
Aggregate Theatre Company performs its fourth of four children's theatre shows in August with the new musical "Giselle la Trent the Gazellephant" (book, music, and lyrics by Matthew Hager). Giselle is half-gazelle, half-elephant, and 100% rockstar. So, why is she having trouble making friends at her new school? Fellow students Margaret, a cat, and Gore, a warthog, are not fans of their new, demanding classmate, and their teacher, Miss Pronoonciation, is too distracted by her own issues to sort things out. Ultimately, the students learn a lesson from Wags, an old Dalmatian, about making friends and being kind to one another. This musical is performed by adults and created for children ages 5-12. There will be plenty of jokes in there for the parents, too, making it fun for the whole family. The series includes three other shows in August: "The Three Billy Goats Gruff the Musical," "Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Ridinghood," and "The Imagination Show." Performances Wednesdays-Saturdays at 11:00 AM, with a second show on Saturdays at 1:00 PM.
