Paynesville's Community Education Summer Theater cast will be presenting two humorous plays on Thursday, July 25, and Friday, July 26, at 7:30 p.m. in the elementary cafeteria.

The plays are humorous adaptations of two traditional children's plays--The Three Bears and Snow White. Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for students. Free refreshments will be served.

The Three Bears includes Papa, Mama and Baby Bear as well as Goldilocks. There is also a Goldilocks chorus, a flower, talking chairs, busy bees, talking trees and more. This version of the play is all done in rhyme. The cast ranges in age from kindergarten through eighth grade.

Cast members include: Goldilocks, Tanya Whitcomb; Papa Bear, Lindsey Pelton; Mama Bear, Katie Bertram; Baby Bear, Ted Hoffman; flower, Megan Whitcomb; trees, Courtnie Higgins, Zachary Schwandt, Joseph Jacklitch; Goldilocks chorus, Erin Maetzold, Emily Mohr, Lindsay Wyffels; Goldilock's mother, Chelsey Hanson; bees, Lauren Vaske, Megan Reeck; and talking chairs, Michael Mueller, Natasha Fangmeier, and Matt Bayer.

The dwarfs in our Snow White play are striking members of a labor union and they want more pay, a 10-hour work week and black lung compensation from the queen. Will the prince arrive in time to save Snow White? Will the dwarfs get all of the contract provisions they want? Have you ever seen a talking mirror that gets the last word?

Cast members include: Snow White, Melinda Norris; Queen, Jenny Habben, Talking Mirror, Sami Tierney; prince, Jesse Yarmon; Smiley, Rae Bailey; Drowsy, Brooke Schmitz; Nosey, Michael Mueller; Ralph, Brittany Stang; Blushing, Amy Vavrosky; Grouchy, Sara Ringstad; Donkey, Susie Swyter.
