RisingStars showcase: Once Upon A Bookshelf

On Sunday, May 28, the current Rising Stars students will show off what they have learned, appearing on the Capitol stage in the family-friendly comedy with music, ONCE UPON A BOOKSHELF.

Curtain Time is 5:00 PM. Doors open at 4:15. Tickets are $7 and $5 for Capitol Friends and will be available at the door. The colorfully costumed show is a series of cartoonlike, “fractured” fairy tales and musical numbers, all of which teach a lesson or moral. Featured are musical versions of The Ugly Duckling and Jack and the Beanstalk, as well as such favorites as Hansel and Gretel and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

The Show is suitable for the whole family from kindergarten to senior citizens. Imaginative sets and costumes combine with live action to make the show entertaining for children as young as 5 years, while adults and older students will enjoy the more mature jokes, satire, and topical comedy.
