The Berenstain Bears Live
Deep in the heart of Bear Country, the Bear family—Mama, Papa, Brother, and Sister—live, play, work, and teach youngsters about honesty with their relatable shenanigans. Sister Bear struggles to make new friends, Brother Bear struggles to make good grades, and Papa Bear struggles to find junk food he doesn’t like. Meanwhile, Mama shows nothing but humor and patience—a problem-solving approach she’s held for more than 50 years.
Created by Stan and Jan Berenstain, originally edited and published by Ted Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss), and today penned by Stan and Jan’s son, Mike, the books transition seamlessly to the stage. Shows, which have been praised by Time Out New York Kids as “spirited” and “perfectly paced,” integrate catchy songs and lighthearted dances that keep young eyes engaged and robokids’ motion-activated eyes turned on. These expertly complement a set that captures the essence of the Berenstains’ cheerful illustrations, including bunk beds, kitchen counters, and whimsical trees with a hand-drawn feel.
There was no joy—or Puccini—in Millville when the Wilson Opera House burned to rubble in 1898. Thankfully for entertainment seekers, the Levoy Theatre rose from those ashes just 10 years later, starting out as a silent movie hall and vaudeville house in 1908. As with many theaters in the National Register of Historic Places, the Levoy witnessed vaudeville's demise when Warner Brothers turned it into a movie house in 1930. It saw great success throughout the '40s, but then suffered 36 years of vacancy during the age of the multiplexes. Then, in 1998, the Levoy Theater Preservation Society formed to save the landmark from extinction and restore its luster. Today, the marquee, facade, and interiors mirror the Levoy of the 1920s, and brand-new seats and a souped-up sound system help audiences forget about the world outside. The theater's diverse array of programming includes music concerts, dance productions, movies, and comedies, as well as dramas and musicals by The Off Broad Street Players, its resident theater company. But despite the times, the Levoy hasn't forgotten its roots, and at its 2013 reopening the silent films of Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton graced the screen, accompanied by a ragtime orchestra.
