Northern Stage presents a new family musical perfect for theatergoers of all ages: The Railway Children, running through New Year’s. Adapted from Edith Nesbit’s classic children’s novel of the same name — with the action transposed, happily, from England to the Green Mountain State — the play follows three siblings who find themselves uprooted to a small railroad town during the Great Depression. As the kids meet their new neighbors and forge new adventures along the tracks, they discover the value of kindness, determination and community.

Price: $19-69.
