Keep in mind as you look at the schedules we’ve posted, that we only list shows that are open to the ticket-buying public. A large part of our tour is made up of school-audience shows, which play on weekday mornings for eager busloads of kids on field trips to their local theatres. So even if your family can’t see a show, we may be playing for a school audience near you.
