The world-famous, fun-loving Mother Goose is now retired and living in Mother Goose Resort Spa, where she has time to keep active and pursue her favorite hobbies. She’s really into sports and fitness! She gets tweets and texts, and even letters, from children all over the world who want to know how she got the ideas for her nursery rhymes.

Assisted by the stage manager, her gander Sydney, she uses comedy sketches and audience participation to show how all of her nursery rhymes and characters came about. With energetic new twists — including a daredevil Humpty Dumpty, a suspicious Bo Peep, and a dancercising Mrs. Sprat — Mother Goose skates, jogs, and scuba-dives her way into children’s hearts.

Please call Meramec Theatre at 314-984-7562 to make group reservations.

Synopsis: Paranoia and betrayal spread like a virus through a small community. At the center of it all, a young couple can only hope to shield themselves from the terrifying mob - but tearing down this tangle of lies is no easy task.

Synopsis: This Tony-Award-winning comedy takes audiences into the hilarious and high-pressure world of the regional spelling bee. An eclectic group of awkward tweens must fight their way through a gauntlet of totally- not-made up words, sharing their stories and few catchy musical numbers along the way. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box.

The Zoo Story Synopsis: A relaxing day in Central Park becomes a psychological standoff when a wealthy executive and an unstable vagrant find themselves seated on the same bench. Over the course of an afternoon, this unlikely pair will learn that they have more in common than they think - but that doesn't make for a happy friendship. With a mix of suspense and dark humor, playwright Edward Albee shows how a close encounter can drive two people even deeper into isolation.

Black Comedy Synopsis: An ill-conceived plot to "borrow" some furniture spins out of control when a fuse blows, turning a dinner party into a farce of mistaken identity and hidden hijinks. As Brindley's neighbors, his fiancée, his ex, and his wealthy benefactors all show up to his dumpy apartment, he's scrambling to keep everyone in the dark about what's really going on. But while the lights are out, the audience can see it all.

Synopsis: Big 8, a former rodeo champ, is struggling to keep the cowboy dream alive even as she faces foreclosure on her Wyoming ranch. But when a wild woman and her one-eyed outlaw biker boyfriend show up on her doorstep, Big 8 suddenly has bigger problems to worry about. The spaghetti Western mythos crashes head-on into B-movie insanity in this shoot 'em up, knock 'em up, cut 'em up comic romp.
