Upcoming Theatre Productions at MRH
MRH is hosting two spring theatre performances. Both are free and open to the public. On Friday, May 7, don’t miss the MRH Middle School play, It’s a Wonderful Neverland. Then, on Tuesday, May 11, catch the MRH High School Spring Theatre Showcase. Both productions begin at 7:00 p.m.
The Middle School play, It’s a Wonderful Neverland, is a comedy that’s a clever blend of It's a Wonderful Life and J.M. Barrie's classic tale, Peter Pan. When the Lost Boys go missing, Peter Pan wishes he never came to Neverland. Unfortunately, his wish is granted by Tinkerbell's unkempt fairy cousin, Stinkerbell, and Peter is given a glimpse of what the world would be like without him. Seeing the Lost Boys now employed by Captain Hook (now known as Captain Two Hands), the obnoxious Darling children, and a Tinkerbell who's lost her wits, Peter finally realizes the importance of his existence – and how it really is a wonderful Neverland.
The High School Spring Theatre Showcase includes The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon by Don Zolidis. In this one act, Two narrators attempt to recreate all 209 of the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm in a wild, fast-paced extravaganza. To make it more difficult, they attempt to combine them into one gigantic fable using Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Hansel and Gretel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and other more obscure stories like Lean Lisa and The Devil's Grandmother. The showcase also includes the thespian induction.
Both productions take place in the MRH Theatre, 7539 Manchester Road, Maplewood.
