Cady Heron may have grown up on an African savanna, but nothing prepared her for the wild and vicious ways of her strange new home: suburban Illinois. How will this naïve newbie rise to the top of the popularity pecking order? By taking on The Plastics, a trio of lionized frenemies led by the charming but ruthless Regina George. Cady and her friends devise a "Revenge Party" to end Regina’s reign with Cady going undercover as an aspiring Plastic. When the lines between the real Cady and her Plastic self get blurred, she must find her way back to herself and her true friends.

Wuthering Heights meets Downton Abbey meets Love, Actually.  It’s the weekend of Algernon and Catherine’s wedding, and no one is happy about it — not the bride and bridegroom, not the family, not the neighbors, not the servants, not even the entertainment...  the Roving Society of Poets and Yeomen.  But especially not Algernon’s brother, Heathcliff, and his friend, Lady Virginia, who have raced home from their world travels to be at the wedding.  When Catherine disappears and Algernon falls over dead, it appears the wedding is off.  But not all is what it seems.  With lots of surprises in store, is it love, actually?  Or is it actually murder? 

Tuition: $175 [Ages 8+]
