Sea Legs: A Nautical New Musical
Sept 20th-27th, 2014
Sea Legs is an award-winning original musical about four young orphans who long for adventure outside their quaint harbor town. But when adulthood, romance, and a few unexpected visitors are thrown in their path, they find that adventure might be closer than they once thought. This coming-of-age tale will reconnect adults with their imagination and inspire children to find their own adventure.
