Princess Willow & the Queen of Thieves
Town School's Theatre
Written by Stephen Stearns and Peter Amidon and lightly abridged by Jonny Flood
Directed by Jonny Flood and Jess Rowan
The Town Schools Theatre project is made possible by grants from The Vermont Children't Trust, The Vermont Community Foundation
This slapstick send-up of medieval adventure tales tells the story of Princess Willow and her stable-boy love Harold as they fight against the evil Queen Clottena and her goons to free their kingdom from overbearing 'protection taxes.' With the help of Robin Hood wannabe-thieves, farmers, a nurse, Harold's parents, and a musical witch, this tough group of serfs and citizens will slap and slow-motion chase-scene their way to a happy ending.
Town Schools Theatre is a partnership between the New England Youth Theatre (NEYT) and Academy, Green Street and Oak Grove. Students from each school came to NEYT for a free after school program to learn theatre skills and rehearse this play. NEYT has led outreach programs at each school, but the principals had the idea to create a unified program so that all students in the public elementary schools can have equal arts opportunities. The program is for students in 4th, 5th and 6th grades.
Performances: January 22-24
Friday and Saturday at 7:00 pm, Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 pm.
