FIRST LOOK at Kentwood Kids ALL IN THE STARS, Opening 6/1
Kentwood Players is delighted to present our next Kentwood Kids Production, "All in the Stars" by Mark Billen on Saturdays, June 1, 8 and 15 at 11:00am and 2:00pm at the Westchester Playhouse, located at 8301 Hindry Avenue in Westchester (LA 90045). The production is directed by Drew Fitzsimmons and Melodie S. Rivers, and produced by Bruce Starrett by special arrangement with Lazy Bee Scripts.
The party starts tomorrow in "All in the Stars" but King Confort's birthday celebration is missing one vital part: someone to execute! If only someone would say or do something even the slightest bit impolite, tradition could be upheld. The bumbling astrologer Canard and conniving sisters Princess Vinaigre and Princess Jalousie do their best to press the issue while King Confort must contend with foreign ambassador Baron Bain-Marie, and King Confort's newly betrothed fiancée Princess Sucrée, who hasn't even been told she's getting married! Is Paysanne, a foreign trader, the prime candidate for execution? Will the King, Astrologer and Foreign Trader perish within the hour?! Chaos ensues and events unfold in a way that surprises everyone in this fast-paced comedy of errors.
Featured in the cast are Taijonna Boone, Kenjo Cable, Tyler Cable, Melana Dix, Riley Dix, Trevor Hart, Logan Hannig, Lucas Hannig, Kalani Hildebrand, Osi Holt, Stephanie Hotz, Savannah Keown, Kobe Kubes, Caroline Macou, Anthony Olivas, Avalon Silver, Hollister Starrett, Miller Vaughn, Rolin Weber, Caitlin Welsh, Isabella Welsh, Ja'von Willis, Hana Woolley, and Emilia Zielinski.
