In this world premiere musical, adapted from the book, The Talented Clementine by Sara Pennypacker published by Disney Hyperion, Clementine gets nervous when her teacher announces that her class will be putting on a talent show.

Clementine must find an act to perform for the show. But with only a few days to do so, can she put it together in time? Encore Stage & Studio and Kid Pan Alley proudly present The Talented Clementine running May 31-June 9, at Gunston Arts Center. Kid Pan Alley worked with Carlin Springs Elementary and schools in its residency program to create lyrics and music for the production.

“This is a story about self-discovery and confidence,” says Sara Duke, Encore’s Executive Director. “What makes this production even more special is the collaboration of elementary students with professionals to write the songs for the production.”

Performance dates and showtimes: Fridays, May 31 and June 7 at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays, June 1 and 8 at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., Sundays, June 2 and 9 at 3 p.m.
