Summer theater to stage three plays
The Paynesville Community Education summer theater is set to present three plays - "The Gingerbread Man," "Little Red Riding Hood," and "Trial of Amanda Marie Locks (Goldilocks)" - on Thursday, June 17, and Friday, June 18, at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Forty-four kids in grades K-8 will star in the plays.|
In "The Gingerbread Man," (cast pictured at right) a talking cookie rides bikes and scooters but can't remember what the GM on his coat stands for. Later, the sly fox comes along with the three little pigs who don't realize they are in the wrong story. The cookie finally realizes what the GM stands for, but will it be too late?
In the "Trial of Amanda Marie Locks," (cast pictured at left) Goldi is on trial for breaking and entering the bear's house and for destruction of property. Some of the witnesses against her include the three bears, Wilma the witch, Duke the wolf, and Grumpy the dwarf. In this spoof of the familiar children's story, the judge becomes infatuated with the beautiful Goldilocks, leading to a most unusual ending.
"Little Red Riding Hood" (cast pictured below) features seven dwarfs who are looking for the talent show, Snow White, and a wolf (who's really a slobbering Irish Setter). No one knows if Little Red Riding Hood will be eaten or if her grandmother will be saved.
Tickets to the plays are $4 for adults and $2 for students. Preschoolers are free. Free refreshments will be served following the plays.
