After receiving a beautiful replica of French artist Edgar Degas’ famous sculpture, The Little Dancer of 14 Years, for her birthday, our heroine Mary is transported back to the moment when the original was unveiled. Much to her surprise, it is ridiculed, prompting Degas to lock the sculpture in a closet never to be seen again! Mary rescues The Little Dancer, who comes to life, and together, they explore the streets and venues of Paris in this fanciful, newly imagined production. (60 minutes)Join us for a delightful tea party with The Little Dancer performers, which begins immediately following the Sunday, 1:00PM performance.

What do you get when five guys in an old locomotive are flyin down the tracks to jam heaven at the speed of bluegrass? The Squarshers!From their hard hitting stompy southern grooves to their fast chucking in your face brand of string music, The Squarshers are ready to throwdown. They are quite a spectacle, with a stage presence that matches their musical intensity. They are a self proclaimed “groovegrass” band, pulling heavily from funk and jam styles
Swooning fiddle melodies and breakneck banjo licks combine to make a musical storm that doesn't let up. When it rains it pours and when it's pouring groovegrass all you can do is dance.
