Play Production With Marin Theatre Company


Instructor: Marin Theatre Company
10 weeks
Who says you need the stage lights to be in the spotlight? This studio production of Nessie and the Terrible Troll led by Marin Theatre Company's professional teaching artists will not include lights, or scenery- instead, it will focus solely on developing the acting skills of the participants. There will be a performance on the last day of class for family and friends. (Costumes optional, provided by parents)
About the Show: Sean is a boy who wants to meet Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster. Awk-Awk is a seal who wants to find his lost ball. A mischievous mermaid wants to get back her comb, stolen by the ghosts of Viking pirates. When a troll decides to drain the loch, these three must join forces to save Nessie's habitat. In the process, each gets what he or she wants most.
