Magic Time! with Maine State Music Theatre
When: Friday, February 24 at 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM
Where: Morrell Meeting Room at Curtis Memorial Library
What: The production will feature readings and live performances, video and audio from Maine State Music Theatre’s 2017 Theatre for Young Audiences shows, Sleeping Beauty and Alice in Wonderland, combining classic fairy tale literature with contemporary musical adaptations.
MSMT artistic director Curt Dale Clark heads the musical cast along with Kristin Thomas and Marcia Gallagher, with Carla Maria Verdino-Sullwold and youth librarian Pam Jenkins narrating.
In preparation for the show, you might want to stop by the library to pick up a traditional or “fractured fairy tale” version of these and other stories. Fractured fairy tales are adaptations of traditional tales that may show new points of view, role reversals, new characters and plot twists, sequels, alternative settings, or fairy tale combinations.
The programs are free to the public, made possible by a generous grant from the Maine Humanities Council.
