Dr. Evil Show Synopsis:
At the monthly online meeting of the Council of Evil, the bumbling ne’er-do-well reveals his newest plans for world domination...  trained pigeons...  with lasers!  Having heard his hair-brained schemes before, Countess Gothma, Lord Warhammer, Archduchess Arsenica, and Prince Vladi practically laugh him out of the Zoom room! Undeterred, Dr. Evil unleashes his army of pigeons upon a rainy but repellant Seattle and a harsh, brash New Jersey, only to have his plans thwarted by unexpected events.  About to lose hope, the doc’s assistant and BFF, Shirley, encourages him to keep on trying.  But when the doctor sends his battalions to Garvin County, Oklahoma, he may finally have met his match in Josephine Esoteric and her army of tigers with jetpacks!



Could You Hug A Cactus? Show Synopsis: 
Based on a collection of whimsical poems by Phillip Van Wagoner, Could You Hug A Cactus? is a musical revue that follows a group of kids as they come together to create a show that’s bursting with poems and creativity. One by one, they each share their imaginative creations, until a nervous performer panics and refuses to contribute a poem. Can the cast help him shed self-doubt and ignite a creative spark?

Show synopsis:
Procrastinating on her homework, Alice falls asleep as she plays solitaire on her computer and is awoken by a white rabbit. As the fuzzy bunny rushes off, the Cheshire Cat appears, informing Alice with a smile that she is now in Cyberland. Alice learns that she must find the dreaded Queen of Hearts in order to learn the password that will allow her to regain control of her computer.  But everyone she meets along the way — a caterpillar, the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, and a duchess — tells her that she doesn’t want to meet the Queen of Hearts! When Alice finally encounters the Queen, her majesty accuses the visitor of stealing her password and puts her on trial in a most ridiculous manner.

Frequently asked questions



Where will classes take place?

All classes will be via Zoom! You can participate from any location. 

Where will performances take place?

There will be no live, in-person end of semester performances for virtual shows. Edited videos of the virtual shows will be released on Storybook's YouTube channel.

YES! Absolutely!


What's your refund policy?
Students who begin a multiple-week class or production and are not able to attend a portion or a remainder of the class will unfortunately not receive a refund or makeup session. In the event that Storybook Theatre cancels a class during the session due to unforeseen circumstances, every effort will be made to provide a make-up session or studio credit to offset the fee. If the minimum number of students is not reached for your class and you are not able to transfer to a different class time, a full refund will be given. 

I paid for a class in Spring 2020 but did not participate in the virtual semester that replaced my class. Can I use class credit toward one of these productions? 
Likely, yes. Contact Julie to discuss your specific class registration and we will go from there! 816.204.5702 or directorjewels@gmail.com
