Join us for our 90th Season!

EBCT’s 90th season is off to a roaring start, and you won’t want to miss out on this special return engagement!

Join us in Castro Valley at Chanticleers Theatre on March 18th when we present two encore performances of the madcap, family-friendly RUMPELSTILTSKIN - A Musical Spin!

“Ya oughta meet my daughta,” a traveling Miller tells the King of Strawtopia. “She can spin your straw to gold!” Trouble is… actually, she can’t. But a nasty little man (with an strange name) can do the task, so the Miller’s Daughter strikes a deal with him. When the deal goes bad, it’s up to the Miller’s Daughter to save the day.

This fresh update on the classic fairy tale is brimming over with zany jokes, physical comedy and surprising twists and turns. Bay area composer and playwright Ron Lytle’s fresh spin (see what we did there?) on the story is enhanced with an infectious Broadway style score. Come see for yourself what made this show such a hit in its original Las Vegas run, where it played for over 1200 performances.

The talented cast of RUMPELSTILTSKIN includes actors from across the entire Bay Area: Hannah Conner (The Miller’s Daughter), McKay Elwood (The Narrator), Curtis Manning (The King), Michael Mendelsohn (Rumpelstiltskin), and Wayne Steffen (The Miller).

Two performances only at Chanticleers Theatre, 3683 Quail Ave, Castro Valley on Saturday, March 18th at Noon and at 2pm. Tickets: $12 - $20. Children (of all ages!) are encouraged to come in costume and have your picture taken on stage with the Cast after the show!  Chanticleers Theatre is located within a park, so you may want to plan a family picnic before the show!

Approximately 1 hr. Reserve early.

Can't get enough of our Magical Movie Musical, ONCE UPON A TIME STEP Well now you can own the original soundtrack!  EBCT's dynamic and fun-filled musical theatre revue features songs from our most popular shows, including Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, That’s Our Snow White, Aladdin and the Lamp, and many more! 

The score (winner of the national Mom’s Choice Award) features music and lyrics by veteran musical theatre composer (and EBCT Resident Playwright) Ron Lytle.

The soundtrack album is available on Amazon or directly from the Composer (autographed upon request) and features an additional 8 songs not included in the movie! (Don't have a CD player?  Did you know that CDs can be played in DVD and BluRay players, too?  It's true!)  Download version also available.
