Brookings Harbor Community Theater invites the public to see the final three junior theater performances of “The Quest.”
Show times are 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, June 27 and 28, and 2 p.m. Sunday, June 29. Ticket prices are $8 for adults and seniors, $5 for students and children, and free for ages 3 and younger. Tickets are available at Wright’s Custom Framing and Art Supplies in Brookings and New Wave Video in Harbor. For more information call 541-661-2473.
The audience will join the students of the exclusive Fantasy Academy as they embark on a quest to gather three hard-to-obtain items and cure Grandma.
Of course, every good fairy tale has a villain, and the best one of all is the big bad wolf! If Grandma is in good health, Big Bad’s plot to snatch the basket of goodies away from Little Red With a Hood might fail. He must keep Grandma feeble by finding the three items before the students do. The fairy tale students fight off the wolf and his sidekick, Tag-Along Troll, and continuously seek the audience’s assistance throughout their journey.
Naturally, in the end, their quest is successful and Grandma is better than ever.
The Juniors Production runs about an hour and has a wonderful message to share with the audience, young and old alike.
