The Elves Are Still Busy
Since October, the St. Margaret’s Players of St. Margaret’s School in Buzzards Bay have been working on an original version of the the beloved folk tale, The Elves and the Shoemaker. Due to overscheduling before Christmas, the production date has been moved to the upcoming weekend of January 10 &11, 2015. Rehearsals are continuing at the school during vacation, with four elves and all characters working hard to perfect their performance.
Janice Rodgers of Buzzards Play Productions and Lee Drescher of the Treasure Time Story Book Theatre are working with sixteen children who range in age from eight to twelve. They will perform a children’s musical which will last about an hour, including the intermission. With the encouragement of Rodgers, this is Drescher’s first attempt to write a children’s show of longer duration than the short skits which she usually creates in conjunction with her live story hour.
The first performance will take place at St, Margaret’s School on Saturday January 10 at 2PM, and the second performance will be at Buzzards Play Productions In Wareham, on the Cranberry Highway on Sunday January 11 at 2PM. The play is suitable for children ages three and up, and all are invited to attend. Admission is $5.00.
