Children's Theatre Announces 'Pure Imagination'

Hartford Children's Theatre has announced its 2010-2011 Family Main Stage Series, "Pure Imagination."

With stories as diverse as a world-famous candy man's quest for an heir, a plucky orphan's tale of hope and optimism and a 13-year-old boy's struggle to fit in, "Pure Imagination" is sure to delight and entertain the entire family.

HCT's 21st Family Main Stage Series, "Pure Imagination" will feature a delicious new production of Roald Dahl's Willy Wonka, Sept. 24 through Oct. 3 followed by the classic family favorite Annie Jan. 7-16 and 13, a musical coming-of-age story by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown April 29-May 15.

The shows will be performed at the Bruyette Athenaeum's Hoffman Auditorium on the campus of Saint Joseph College, 1678 Asylum Ave., West Hartford.

In addition to HCT's Main Stage Series, the organization will launch a new touring division entitled HCT on the Road. The new program will tour productions directly to schools within Greater Hartford and beyond, furthering HCT's mission of providing access and exposure to high quality theatre to young audiences. HCT on the Road will begin in November 2010 with a touring production of School House Rock Live! based on the 1970's educational animated series by ABC TV.

March 2011 will see the premiere of Class Clown, a new play commissioned by HCT from children's author Johanna Hurwitz, author of more than 60 children's novels.
