“Straw Into Gold,” has modern, witty language and hilarious characters that spice up this classic adaptation of Rumplestiltskin. The beleaguered queen seeks to quell young Prince Philip’s infatuation with a kitchen maid, Melinda. But when the prince, who talks too much and too wildly (as a man in love will), boasts that Melinda can spin straw into gold, the queen sees this poor kitchen maid could be good for the kingdom after all! All seems well until their first child is born and disappears — into the clutches of the evil troll, Rumplestiltskin, whose name must be guessed to reverse the spell!
We’ve all heard the story of Little Red Riding Hood. But how often has it been told from the Wolf’s point of view? Yes, this kind, sensitive wolf is upset, for he has been maligned by society because of a story that has been repeated to generations of children. He is determined to tell the story as it really happened, of the true nature of Red Riding Hood and his own good intentions. “Red vs. the Wolf” will show your audience that there are two sides to every story.
Performances are at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 7. Tickets will be sold at the door; adults $6, students and senior citizens $4, and preschoolers are free. Desserts will also be available on a donation basis. LCA is located at 1093 S 250 E, Winona Lake. For more information, call (574) 267-7265.
