In 1907, Irish playwright John Synge shocked all of Dublin with his new,
wildly funny drama set in very rural Ireland. He called it "Playboy of the
Western World,"back when "playboy"meant a fun, athletic young man, and the
western world was a rocky, slimly populated tidal flat that seemed like
the whole world to its simple inhabitants. In 2004, Peter Gould directed a
zany, physical production at the old NEYT. This October, Peter and a fine
new troupe of young senior actors bring "Playboy of the Western World" to
life again on the NEYT stage, with music and dance and a vintage-style box
set built by Rick Barron and his tech students. Don't miss it: this play
is the source and inspiration for all the great Irish comedies that have
followed it over the past one hundred years.

Winnie-the-Pooh is Christopher Robin's fat little "bear of very little
brain" who would like to drift peacefully through life, humming tunes and
stopping frequently to eat "a little something." However, he finds himself
involved in all sorts of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as
the dismal Eeyore, Piglet and Rabbit, with his countless relations. Pooh's
intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey and condensed
milk keeps getting him into trouble.

musical fans with its catchy tunes such as “Edelweiss”, “My Favorite
Things”, “Climb Every Mountain” and “Do-Re-Mi”. Based on the true story

When the governess, Maria arrives at Captain von Trapp's family she is met
with some hostility and regiment. Eventually she wins them over with her
kindness and sense of joy. Even the Captain falls in love! The hills of
Vermont will come alive with this beloved family favorite!
