The Brecksville Theatre invites area children grades K through 8th to participate in our Spring Break Mini Camp production of "The Amazing Animal Race." Based on the classic legend of the Chinese Zodiac, this original play follows 12 very special animals as they compete to see who will be featured first on the annual calendar. The five-day camp will allow aspiring stage performers and artists to get hands-on experience in acting, writing, directing, set and costume design, and puppetry. Taking place April 15-19 from 9am-3pm, the weeklong sessions will culminate in a performance for family, friends, and invited guests on Friday evening. Each participant will also take home their own hand-crafted puppet. Director Rich Stimac has worked extensively in Cleveland, New York and Los Angeles, and appeared at TBT in "Pinkalicious," "Elephant and Piggie," and "Wiley and the Hairy Man."

Stop the presses! This Disney film turned Tony-winning Broadway hit inspires everyone to fight for what's right and seize the day.

It's time to carry the banner on The Brecksville Theatre's stage with Disney's Newsies! Set in turn-of-the century New York City, Newsies is the rousing tale of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a band of teenaged "newsies." When titans of publishing raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies newsies from across the city to strike against the unfair conditions and fight for what's right!

Based on the 1992 motion picture and inspired by a true story, Newsiesfeatures a Tony Award-winning score by Alan Menken (Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act) and Jack Feldman and a book by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein (Kinky Boots). Featuring the now classic songs “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” and “Santa Fe,” Newsies is packed with non-stop thrills and a timeless message, perfect for the whole family and every audience.
