ACT I (Youth Production) presents 'The Enchanted Bookshop,' June 29, 30 and July 1
June 25, 2023
A colorful collection of book characters including Sherlock Holmes, Tom Sawyer, Dorothy, the Wicked Witch of the West, Robin Hood, Dr. Doolittle, Frankenstein, Hopalong Cassidy, Pollyanna, Fagin and the Queen of Hearts come to life on the stage of ACT I Theatre, Inc. in the upcoming youth production of The Enchanted Bookshop, June 29, 30 and July 1 at 7 p.m.
"During the day, A Likely Story bookshop looks like any other used bookstore, but at night it's a magical place," said Director Delaney Lambert. "That's when the characters in the books come alive, thanks to a magic spell by the Book Fairy. The characters try to help the scatterbrained owner save her struggling store, but they must be careful not to be seen by others or the spell will break and they will disappear forever. It's a lively play that will appeal to all ages, and our students have had so much fun putting it together!"
