The Primary Players, a non-profit, volunteer organization, will welcome all landlubbers and pirates alike to come ashore to the Maryville High School auditorium next weekend.
“Treasure Island” will be performed at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 3-4, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 5, at the MHS auditorium. The production will feature more than 50 children.
The Primary Players exists solely to provide area children an opportunity to be a part of the performing arts network. Tickets for the production are $5 for adults and free for children ages 12 and under.
In preparation for their newest production of “Treasure Island,” by Robert Louis Stevenson, the Primary Players Children’s Theater Group participated in a theater make-up workshop at First United Methodist Church. The purpose of the make-up workshop was to familiarize the actors with make-up and its application for specific characters in the play.
With instruction, all participants in the workshop were able to learn more about what is involved in the various stage craft techniques.
This is the second workshop the Players have offered free of charge to the current cast members. The first was in sword play, also in preparation for “Treasure Island.” The goal of the workshops is to promote a better understanding of all aspects of the performing arts.
