WELCOME from the Producing Artistic Director Welcome! There’s something exciting about being part of something that is brand new. We’ve all been excited about seeing a new movie or reading a book that’s just been published. We’ve all made sure we were home in time to see a new episode of a favorite TV show. Re-runs can be fun but it’s special to see something being shown for the very first time.

Terrence J. Nolen

This is the world premiere production of The Flea and the Professor. That means that this is the very first time that this show is being performed. You are the first audience ever – in the entire world – to see this show. When we are choosing shows, we look for the best plays and musicals written for kids. We also ask writers to write new plays for us. A couple of years ago, we asked playwright Jordan Harrison if he wanted to write a new play for us. It was Jordan’s idea to write a play for Arden Children’s Theatre – he wanted to write for you. He also decided that he wanted to base his new play on a story by Hans Christian Andersen. And it was Jordan who decided that his new play for kids should actually be a new musical for kids (that’s when we got composer Richard Gray involved). Clearly Jordan is a very smart man. It’s been very exciting getting this show ready for you. Like the Professor and the Flea, we’ve had our own adventure creating this new musical. And now we ask you to join us on this adventure. Who knows, years from now, maybe you’ll take your own kids to see a production of The Flea and the Professor and, if so, you’ll be able to tell them that you were there at the very beginning – the very first time this show was ever done. Thanks for being part of our world premiere. I hope you like it.

Terry tnolen@ardentheatre.org P.S. Next year we will be doing Charlotte’s Web. Like The Flea and the Professor, it’s a story about two unlikely friends (though as Charlotte will tell you, she is an arachnid, not an insect like Flea.) When I was a kid, this was my favorite story. I hope you’ll come and see it.

DIRECTOR’S Notes

Anne Kauffman

The idea of family has become increasingly complex during my lifetime. What makes a family? Is it restricted to a mother, a father and their progeny? Certainly that was my personal experience, and I benefited greatly from it. But then, as I grew older, I began to feel like a bit of an outsider, even with the love and support my family so generously provided. There was a moment when I began to feel conspicuous wanting the particular things I wanted, and self-conscious for thinking what was considered normal and acceptable, strange and unacceptable. Sensing that I might be a bit of a freak, and assuming I must be adopted, I wandered the halls of the school and streets of my neighborhood feeling out of sync and oftentimes, invisible.

Then miraculously, or so it seemed to me at the time, I stumbled upon others who were similarly isolated within their nuclear structures, and considered a bit odd. These friends, who had dreams like me and desires that classified them as ‘other,’ began to coagulate around me, creating a new family entity. With this ad hoc unit, I was afforded another kind of energy and inspiration outside my original family. Together, we nourished and encouraged each other, indulging the need to dream our seemingly impossible dreams. This is why I am so drawn to the characters in The Flea and the Professor. Unconventional alliances are established and the most unlikely combinations of personalities find solace and inspiration in these unions. Parent-less folk forge new families with others who the world has left behind, and fears about who they are and where they’re going shrink when they travel towards their futures together. The Flea and the Professor reminds us what it’s like to be alone, and that a family is a collection of souls who help mitigate that loneliness.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR HONORARY PRODUCERS

One of the key goals of the Arden is to create great children’s theatre. This goal now takes on new significance with the Arden’s production of The Flea and the Professor, the first time the Arden has commissioned a new children’s play. We are honored to be a small part of this process through the Virginia and Harvey Kimmel Arts Education Fund. We have made it our goal over the past decade to support arts and education organizations in pursuing their dreams, and sharing their skills with the communities they serve. For all the programs we have supported, Flea also marks a first for us. It has been an exciting ride to witness its creation, and one we hope to see repeated as the Arden grows its children’s theatre program.

Virginia & Harvey Kimmel

With this production of The Flea and the Professor, we have helped the Arden achieve its dream of developing and producing an original play for children. No one does it better than the Arden, and this play is no exception. The talent Terry Nolen brought together to create this magical play is incredible. We have had the pleasure of getting to know the writer, director, and composer of Flea and what a team! Last spring, we traveled to Washington D.C. to attend the Kennedy Center New Visions/New Voices Festival, where an early version of this play was workshopped. Out of hundreds of plays from around the globe, Flea was selected to be a part of this prestigious event. In seeing this production come to fruition, we are all so proud of what has been accomplished. For all of us who have been involved for the past several years since this dream started, the most important thing is that this will be a production that should bring a smile to all the children and young of heart who see it. Bringing art of the highest quality to young audiences is vital, for they are the future. So many children and families would never get that opportunity if not for the commitment of the Arden, and the outreach made possible through its Arden for All program. Our thanks to the Arden, and to all of those involved, for helping us further our mission to advance the arts and education. We know you will love the show.

The commissioning of The Flea and the Professor was made possible by the generous support of the Virginia and Harvey Kimmel Arts Education Fund of the Philadelphia Foundation. We thank them for bringing new work for children to life!

Adventure Time! The Flea and the Professor like to go on awesome adventures together. They fly in a hot air balloon, tour the globe with their circus act, and explore a deserted island where some creepy Cannibals live. One of the reasons these adventures are super exciting is because they’re really fun. Another reason is because they get to share it with their best friend. Adventures can come in all shapes and sizes; just like friends. Sometimes adventures include traveling really far away in a car or on a plane. Adventures can even happen in your own backyard–using your imagination. We talked to some of our friends to find out what kind of adventures they’ve had or would like to go on. Here’s what they told us: One of my most exciting adventures was a trip to England with my friend Mary in 1981, several months after that other Royal Wedding. We survived pickpockets, cabdrivers we couldn’t understand, and driving a rental car with the steering wheel on the other side of the car. We saw the Globe Theater, where Shakespeare lived, and bought lots of silly wedding souvenirs in London. -Sue Serio, Weather Anchor for Good Day Philadelphia, Fox29 When I was eight years old, my family packed everything into our station wagon and moved all the way across the country. We took about a month to do it: we climbed glaciers, we panned for gold, and we counted cows outside the window. It was scary–I was leaving all of my friends behind–but also exciting. -Jordan Harrison, playwright of The Flea and the Professor One time I entered Veteran’s Stadium by sky-diving into it! When we jumped out of the plane the stadium was only as big as a cookie, it was an AMAZING ride even though we crash landed onto the turf field. I will never forget that moment! -SWOOP, mascot for the Phildelphia Eagles I want to drive across the ocean to try and get to Hawaii. -Oscar Roat, 1st Grade One day my great adventure would be travelling across the United States and Canada in order to attend a Major League Baseball game in every stadium. I would take my family on this adventure. We are all baseball fanatics! -Lieutenant Frank Milillo, 6th District Philadelphia I want to get to dress like a princess for a whole week even at school. And maybe ride a horse, too. -Shannon Archer, Kindergarten I had a fun adventure when I drove from Philadelphia to San Diego and back with my cat Nico. It took 4 days each way. Just me and my 20lb companion. Whether driving thru the Mojave Desert, the Rocky Mountains, or the Canyonlands of Utah, Nico was a faithful friend. Sitting on my lap for most of the ride, he’d occasionally even sit up straight with his hind paws on the steering wheel. (This was less helpful than he probably thought.) We bonded. Nothing like two friends on the open road. Just like the Flea and the Professor. -Robert McClure, The Professor in The Flea and the Professor What have been some of your coolest adventures? If you could go on one right now where would you go? Who would you take with you?
