With character names like Headmaster Albatross Underdrawers and Lord Murderdeath, it’s not just the title of the Friday Harbor Middle School play that says “fun with a classic book, movie and cultural phenomenon.”
The Players present Dean O’Carroll’s Sally Cotter and the Censored Stone at San Juan Community Theatre on Friday and Saturday, March 18-19 at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 2:00 p.m.
After reading about a famous boy wizard, Sally dreams that she is a student at Frogbull Academy of Sorcery and meets up with Underdrawers, Gamekeeper Ruebenon Ryebread, Professor Shiftia Shape, friends Dave and Harmonica and the evil Lord Murderdeath.
While hilarious and fun for the young actors and their audiences, director Jenni Merritt says the parody holds a subtle reminder of how one fantastical book can transform a generation.
The Business Partner for the production is Printonyx. All tickets are $11 each, with $5 student RUSH at the door. The SJCT box office is open Tuesdays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets may also be purchased on-line at www.sjctheatre.org.
