“Alvin the Alligator” is back!  For the fourth year the loveable reptile returns to the stage for our annual Children’s Theatre show.  In his previous outings (“Totally Frank”, “Hollywood Daze” & “Band Together”) “Alvin” imparted the lessons of non-judgement, acceptance & integrity.  In this new adventure “Alvin” learns the importance of ‘facing your fears’ – and he shares the lesson in this latest “Alvin Morality Tale”.

J. Bruce Ismay built the biggest, most opulent ship the world had ever seen and was on board for the adventure of its maiden voyage.  But then the impossible happened.  His unsinkable ship, Titanic, sank.  Even though he stepped into the last lifeboat and was branded a coward, Ismay’s full story of that night has never been told.  This epic tale explores not only the tragedy itself, but the sensationalized trials and aftermath of the night that changed the world, and one man, forever.
