Anywhere But Here

Summer 2010

Our theme for Summer 2010 was SETTING IS IMPORTANT. We visited the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens whose hothouses inspired our tropical jungle location, Park Avenue Armory which inspired our haunted mansion location, an exhibit about Antarctica at the Museum of Natural History which inspired our Antarctica location and the Pagoda in Prospect Park that inspired our balcony location. Our script featured traditional characters in each location who magically changed their setting and circumstances when they wished aloud to be “Anywhere But Here.”

The classic story of Romeo and Juliet gets turned on its head as the two characters find themselves transported to a wide assortment of new lands. Two mischievous penguins end up playing a crucial part in this new plot.
