Welcome to life of Elwood P. Dowd. An affable chap with an unlikely best pal called Harvey, a six-foot tall imaginary rabbit. Whilst he sees nothing wrong with his big-eared friend, his family are more than bit concerned, but more for their reputation than his well-being.

Peter and the Starcatcher

March 15-May 1, 2016

Walnut Street Theatre stages the smash-hit prequel to J.M. Barrie's classic, Peter Pan. Peter and the Starcatcher is a magical re-imagining of Peter Pan's origin story. Find out how it all started for the boy who never grew up, aboard the pirate ship The Neverland, captained by the evil Bill Slank. This multi-Tony Award-winning show is an endlessly inventive and charming treat.

Freckleface Strawberry - The Musical

April 2-3, 2016

Walnut Street Theatre presents a brand-new musical based on the popular children's book by actress Julianne Moore! Our heroine is a seven-year old girl who simply loathes her freckly face. Teased by her friends for her complexion, Freckleface tries everything to get rid of them; she tries to scrub them off with soap, caking on thick makeup, and she even resorts to wearing a ski mask to school! But as she learns with the help of a kooky teacher and her friends, everybody is different and she goes on a sweet journey to self-acceptance. A delightful tale with music and songs for kids to welcome their differences!
