Peter and the Wolf
The classic story of wolf versus boy. And duck. And bird. And cat. Sergei Prokofiev’s timeless tale comes to life in this playful vaudeville-inspired one-man performance by actor Michael Boudewyns. This performance, hailed by the Philadelphia Inquirer as “immensely likeable” and “using simplicity as a form of genius,” is sure to engage and inspire imaginations of all ages.
Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham
“Do YOU like Green Eggs and Ham?” This musical adaptation of Dr. Seuss’s beloved children’s classic, cleverly composed by Robert Kapilow and featuring the unstoppable Sam-I-Am, is a feast for the ears. Soprano Kimberly Schroeder and storyteller Michael Boudewyns join the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra to serve up a delightful dish in this cartoon-musical banquet.
