Description

The Punxsutawney Theatre Arts Guild provides some fairy tale magic to you this summer and it is two for the price of one! A small troupe of adults & youth give you a double dose of James Thurber, 20th Century American humorist, with the following shows:

"Many Moons"

Dramatized by Charlotte B. Chorpenning and based on the James Thurber short story through The Dramatic Publishing Company

Princess Lenore has fallen mortally ill. Her pulse grows weak and she won't even touch her beloved raspberry tarts. It is determined that she is suffering from some mysterious, un-nameable longing and so when she finally asks for the moon, her distraught father tells her she can have it. The King frantically turns to his Wise Men, but none of them have any idea of even how large the moon is, let alone how to get it. Finally, it is the Court Jester who acquires the "moon" for the Princess and imparts a lovely bit of philosophy.

"The Thirteen Clocks"

by Fred Sadoff and Marc Bucci based on the James Thurber short story through Music Theatre International

It is a one-hour musical to finish the evening. When an evil Duke captures a beautiful Princess, her beloved Prince must find one thousand jewels and unfreeze thirteen clocks that the Duke has stopped. If he fails, the Prince will be devoured by the invisible Todal. With the help of a fumbling sprite named Golux and an old woman whose tears turn to gems, the Prince frees the Princess, leaving the evil Duke to the terrible Todal. A masterpiece of make-believe, "The Thirteen Clocks" is a charming, whimsical work in the tradition of Lewis Carroll and L. Frank Baum.
