The Girl Who Forgot to Sing Badly 

by Finegan Kruckemeyer

December 2nd-20th, 2024

Running Time: Approx. 50 minutes

Recommended for grades K-5

USA PREMIERE!

Sometimes it takes a girl-sized human to solve an adult-sized problem… Peggy O’Hegarty and her parents are packers. They squeeze fruit into tins, foxes into boxes, even bikes into brown paper bags. And then one day, work stops working, and the jobs stop jobbing and Peggy steps outside to find that winter has arrived…and everyone in her city has vanished!

Get ready for a story literally packed full of fun and suspense. As Peggy desperately tries to save the day, we learn about love, loss, the reassurance of goats and that we should all have the courage to sing gloriously on or off-key!

When a storyteller summons Harriet Tubman from the past, one of America's greatest heroines offers to divulge the details of her extraordinary life. As the storyteller portrays the diverse characters from her past, from Frederick Douglas to plantation owners, Harriet relives her humble beginnings with her family through the end of the Civil War. Though widely known for her unimaginable feats of courage, this play also explores the finer details of Harriet's life, evoking her more nuanced messages of hope and faith in other people.

Cinderella Confidential is a co-production with LCCC Theatre Department 

The prince has the shoe. He's ready to wed. But who's the woman behind the foot? Two investigative reporters—Deb Jabber from Action News Day Now and Sonny Glamour from Glitter Kingdom Today—compete for the scoop of the century, interviewing everybody from a fairy godmother in desperate need of a day-planner to mice in the witness protection program. Look for cameos from Pinocchio, Jack and his cow and other celebrities in this no-holds-barred exposé of the timeless love story and what it means to find—and TELL—the truth.
