An evening of theatrical story-telling in a revue format, this show includes pieces such as: the little boy who wants to play the pig in Cinderella, the man who is able to fly in his lawn chair, and the modern day philosopher who finds the meaning of life in a piece of broken mirror. It's sure to be an evening of fun with something for everyone. Directors Elvin Moriarty, Marjorie Johnston & Kristen Sheils are seeking cast members to fill 2 female, 4 male and 1 other roles.
