Based on Maurice Sendaks classic books including Alligators All AroundPierre, and One Was Johnny, this 1980 off-Broadway gem, with music by Carol King, tells the tale of Rosie, a demonstrative and dramatic child who lives on Avenue P in Brooklyn as she and her friends, the Nutshell Kids, attempt to entertain themselves on another long, summer day. Rosie's creativity and bossiness, as she directs and stars in the epic story of her life, is an enchanting, uplifting, and subtle reminder of the resiliency a child's imagination can provide.

About the Gateway Season

The Gateway Season shows are a hybrid of the Youth Theatre Company and GCPA educational  experience.  They bring actors with strong training, skills, and interest together for a more intensive and intimate process.  With less of a focus on flashy technical aspects, actors are challenged to create authentic performances that both entertain and inspire their audience.  These shows have limited cast members and are chosen to be thought provoking, challenging, and to push the "norm" of St. Louis youth theatre. During the summer, rehearsals are Monday - Friday, 9am - 4pm for 3 consecutive weeks. Rehearsals include class time focused on vocal, dance, and acting technique to further expand the actors skill set.
