Stage 3 Young Company


With infectiously, unforgettable music, Pippin is the story of a young man's journey to be extraordinary. The young prince Pippin searches for the secret to true happiness and fulfillment, seeking it in the glories of the battlefield, the temptation of vice, and the intrigues of political power. In the end though, Pippin finds that happiness lies not in extraordinary endeavors, but rather in the unextraordinary moments that happen every day. This updated version of Pippin, presented by the Stage 3 Young Company, will captivate and appeal to the young at heart.

British Invation in Concert

The British are coming! The British are coming!

In the mid 1960s North American audiences went wild for a new sound and attitude from across the pond.  A cultural phenomenon began – The British Invasion.  

The Beatles famously stunned television audiences in 1964, followed by Herman's Hermits, Gerry and the Pacemakers and Dusty Springfield.  It continued through the 70s, 80s and 90s with Supertramp, Queen, Oasis and Wham until The Spice Girls exploded and inspired Adele and Ed Sheeren.  British legends from the 60s until today will invade the Theatre Ancaster stage in the spring to leave you absolutely chuffed!   

Audience Advisory: Theatrical smoke/haze and flashing lights. 

Evenings at 7:30 pm: April 24, 25, May 1 & 2
Matinees at 2:00 pm: May 2 & 3
