Youth stage two plays through mini-theater
Thirty-seven local students presented two plays over the weekend through Community Education's mini-theater. Students presented "Wishing You Were Here" and "If the Shoe Fits" on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. |
"Wishing You Were Here" was a short play about a school for future fairy godmothers. One young fairy gives a lonely girl everything she wishes for - peace between her parents and bringing her friend back from Alaska - but neither wish works out. In the end, though, their friendship gives the girl everything she wanted anyway.
Mom (Leslie Rossler) yells at Dad (Tyler Korlever) during "Wishing You Were Here." Having her parents stop fighting is one of the wishes that a young fairy-in-training grants a lonely girl in the play.
The second play was "If the Shoe Fits," a spoof of "Cinderella" with the prince being kidnapped by a local gang and with Cinderella having to get the limousine home by midnight or the driver would get time and a half. When the prince proposes to Cinderella in this play, she says no, and they decide to go to college together first.
The plays were directed by Colleen Pelton and Sue Teicher.
