PLYMOUTH — The Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University hosts professional actors from the Papermill Theatre in Lincoln throughout the summer, presenting their repertoire of children's stories adapted for the stage.
Performances are 2 p.m. each Thursday. All seats (including babes in arms) are $6 and the shows usually sell out early.
The production for July 25 is The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Quasimodo has always been bullied by the people of the town. After they play a mean trick on him, Quasimodo and a beautiful Gypsy friend, Esmeralda, decide to turn the tables, teach the town a lesson, and help everyone to learn the value of friendship, kindness and never to bully.
Performances remaining this summer are:
August 1 Rapunzel
August 8 Just So Stories
August 15 Hansel and Gretel
The North Country Center for the Arts Children's Theatre has been delighting audiences for more than 20 years, with original adaptations of fairytales and folktales produced and created for children of all ages. Shows are approximately 40 minutes long and appeal to adults, and children three years and older. Characters greet the audience in the Silver Center lobby after each show.
