The Capitol Theatre’s youth acting group, the Rising Stars, will present the family friendly comedy with music ONCE UPON A BOOKSHELF on Sunday, May 28 at 5:00 pm on stage at the Capitol Theatre
The colorfully costumed show is a series of cartoonlike “fractured” fairy tales and musical numbers, all of which teach a lesson or moral. Featured are musical versions of The Ugly Duckling and Jack and the Beanstalk, as well as such favorites as Hansel and Gretel and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
Director Janet Foote says that “The show is suitable for the whole family from kindergarten to senior citizens. Imaginative sets and costumes combine with lively action to make the show entertaining for children as young as 5 years, while adults and older students will enjoy the more mature jokes, satire, and topical comedy.”
Doors open at 4:30 and Curtain Time is 5:00 PM. Tickets are $7 for everyone and will be available at the door.
The Rising Stars also will begin their Summer Session on Saturday, June 3.
The program focuses on life skills as well as stagecraft, developing self-confidence, reading and speaking skills, teamwork, and individual responsibility. The students have fun while learning and making new friends. No previous experience or audition is required.
Tuition is $140 per student for 10 weeks of age-appropriate Saturday classes with professional actor, director, and teacher, Janet Foote. Students in 2nd grade through college are accepted.
