There are lots of events coming up in the near future. First is information about our drama camp to be held at our theatre space. We are looking for a couple of more campers to be able to run the camp. It runs Monday – Friday from 9:00 until noon with a performance at the end of the camp.

Next is our upcoming production of The Trial of Goldilocks. Our cast has been working hard on this show all summer long and they are excited to present it to you. The dates are August 17 – 21. Times are listed below.

Third is the theatre will be offering a free workshop called: Using the Actor’s Toolbox. It will be offered at three library locations. This is a great opportunity for our young actors to bring along a friend and introduce them to the world of acting.

Finally auditions for our fall play, The Canterville Ghost, will be held September 5 and 6 at our theatre space. This is a great family comedy with a large cast, enough room for everyone.

Our next play - The Trial of Goldilocks

Our next play will be The Trial of Goldilocks directed by Kurk Prater. The production dates are Thursday, August 17 - Sunday, August 20. Show times are at 7:00 p.m. Thursday - Saturday and at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. Ticket prices are $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for seniors and children. Here is some information about the play: This exciting comedy examines the familiar fairy tale from three points of view: the traditional, the Bears', and then Goldilocks'. Guilty or innocent? Was the young girl a selfish, spoiled brat, intruding where she didn't belong? Or was she the victim of three conniving bears (and their animal "band of hoods" in the woods)? Complete with a hard-of-hearing judge, a harried clerk, two comic lawyers and a jury (of any size)—which gets involved in the action as tables, chairs, beds and forest animals--this charming comedy is perfect for performers of all ages. From the opening moment, when three vendors attempt to hawk souvenirs among the audience, to the surprising verdict from the jury—and a "happily-ever-after" conclusion—this play, performed completely in verse, is both unique and enchanting. As one critic wrote: "The work is entertaining on all levels and is highly educational, both in presenting the same story from different points of view and in involving the child performers in a variety of ways.”
