Stronger Than Strong! Great American Tall Tale Heroines

The Alan J. Levine Theater is proud to partner with the Circle Theater this 2022-23 season for three productions at the Staenberg Omaha JCC. The first production is Stronger Than Strong! Great American Tall Tale Heroines by Brian Guehring.

The famous Doctors Wellington have arrived in this small town at the turn of the last century to sell their amazing strength elixir to the population. In search of ingredients to make the strength elixir, the Doctors Wellington and their troupe meet three legendary tall tale heroines and hear about their adventures. Using ingredients from each of these three heroines, the doctors create an elixir so you, too, can be as strong as these tall tale legends!
