During the day, A Likely Story may look like any other used bookstore.  But at night, it’s a place where magic happens.  That’s when the characters inside the books come alive.

Six of those characters — Dorothy Gale, Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer — long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store.  But they’re not allowed to leave the building or be seen by human eyes.  So when a pair of smugglers comes looking for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of the books, the characters are torn.  Should they warn Margie and risk disappearing forever?  Or can they find a way to defeat the crooks without being seen?

Looking Glass Land Theatre Camp

9am-3pm, ages 8 and up

Performance Friday August 7th at 3pm

$175

This award-winning stage adaptation by renowned playwright James DeVita takes Lewis Carroll’s original Through the Looking Glass and literally runs with it.  This wild adaptation highlights and improvises on the pure, unadulterated fun of the story.  The play still retains some of Carroll’s deeper meanings, but what it possesses most of all is a huge helping of unabashed silliness!

This delightful romp through Alice’s looking glass land retains all of the familiar characters then introduces dozens of new ones:  a baseball team, a gospel group called The Responsibilities, a train conductor, a peanut salesman, detectives, a Miss America pageant, star-struck tourists, plastic light saber wielding knights and much more.  Set requirements are minimal.  The play can be performed on a bare stage with suggested set changes accomplished with lighting, or the production can be as huge as your imagination and budget allow.  The Children’s Book and Play Review declares, “This is an excellent script…  delightful, amusing and believable in a land that’s not.”
