With the upcoming KNC production of “Sally Cotter and the Censored Stone,” – a parody by Dean O’Carroll – audience members follow a very familiar character on a quest.
Directed by Emily James, “Sally Cotter and the Censored Stone” opens at 7:30 p.m. May 10, and continues through May 19 with performances at 7:30 p.m. Fridays & Saturdays, and 2:30 p.m. Sundays.
Of the story, KNC shares:
When Sally falls asleep while reading books about a certain juvenile wizard, she dreams that she is a student at Frogbull Academy of Sorcery and Sorcerocity. There she meets Headmaster Albatross Underdrawers, Gamekeeper Ruebenon Ryebread, and Professor Shiftia Shape. But danger is lurking, and it’s up to Sally and her new friends Dave and Harmonica to defeat the schemes of the evil Lord Murderdeath.
Will she become the hero like the one in her favorite series? And who is the mysterious Censor who keeps rewriting the story as it goes along? This loving parody will thrill fans and newcomers alike.
Performances are held at First Presbyterian Church, 1340 Murchison. Tickets are $5 & $7.
