Featured Productions

The Greatest Story Never Told
The Newport Theater
Saturdays and Sundays February 16 - March 22
A hapless narrator stumbles on stage and discovers a storybook with no text inside and learns that none of the actors are coming to perform! The solution? Have the children in the audience volunteer to come on stage and become characters in The Greatest Story Never Told! Along with help from “The Greatest Interns,” volunteers put on silly costumes and make up scenes and songs for a story inspired by audience suggestions. “The Greatest Interns” are played by a rotating cast of professional adult improvisers.
