Brush Creek is launching its 2023 season with the return of one of its favorite shows, The Further MISAdventures of the Seven Dwarfs. The crowd-pleaser brings back the seven dwarfs for a romp through the collected tales of the Brothers Grimm.
Did you know that a dwarf helped Rapunzel and her prince? And helped Hansel and Gretel escape the gingerbread house? No? Well, you’re invited to learn the real story in the 2023 children and youth production directed by Linda Zellner. The play, written by Emily and Michael Wood, is performed by arrangement with Evander Dramatic Press.
The show opens on Friday, Feb. 24 and runs three weekends, closing March 12. Performances are at 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, with a 2 p.m. matinee each Sunday.
Tickets are $10, $8 for children 12 and under, seniors 60+ and students, and are on sale at Runaway Art & Craft Studio, 4675 Commercial St. S.E., Salem and Books N Time, 210 N. Water St., Silverton. They also are available at the door beginning 30 minutes before each performance. The theater is located at 11535 Silverton Road, N.E., Silverton.
Brush Creek Players have a GoFundMe page to help provide fresh paint and a thorough roof cleaning to the old schoolhouse and theater.
Contributions to BCP – unlike some other GoFundMe donations – are a contribution to a 501-c-3 charity for tax purposes. Information at: https://gofund.me/44f06a0b.
