Current Season

PHP performs a full season of children’s mainstage plays at Gamut Classic Theatre, located on the 3rd floor of Strawberry Square in downtown Harrisburg. Their goal is to provide live theatre to children and areas that do not normally have the opportunity to experience professional theatre and to spread a bit of laughter wherever they go!  Audiences of all ages love their original scripts, quick wit, and improvisational comedy.

Jack and the BeanstalkJack and the Beanstalk

March 29-April 12

Jack’s mama surely didn’t expect beans in exchange for her old cow, Betsy Lou, but when a beanstalk sprouts overnight that reaches into the clouds, little do they know what adventures await! Join Jack, the captive princess, and the Goose that lays the golden eggs as they try to escape from the Giant. Sometimes believing in magic (beans, that is) really can make all your dreams come true!
