Robinson Crusoe at Harmony Hall, Dec 14

The Missoula Children’s Theatre presents
Robinson Crusoe
A musical play

Saturday, December 14, 2019 at 11am and 1pm

Location: Harmony Hall Regional Center in Fort Washington

Purposely varying from the plot of Daniel Defoe’s novel, Missoula Children’s Theatre’s “Robinson Crusoe” teaches the lesson that reading invites more than observation.

We arrive on Robinson’s island years after he and his sole companion, a goat named Wilson, are shipwrecked. We find that the island has turned into a tourist destination centered around a lovable singing leopard, a tribe of natives known for their colorful coifs, Friday’s Seaside Resort and, of course, the legend of Robinson Crusoe. In a flashback, his story comes to life beginning with the shipwreck, which marooned him and Wilson on the island.

The entire population of the island, including a herd of goats, an all-animal band, Friday and his family, and the inevitable hula-dancing chameleons, discover that our differences need not stand in the way of our friendships. All of the characters live happily and harmoniously ever after.

The Missoula Children’s Theatre provides two professional tour actor/directors, who will audition and cast 50 to 60 local elementary school children in this production on Monday. To participate, see the audition notice.

Tickets to the performance: $5.

Written by Diallo Adams

In this original play about the struggles of a local record store to stay afloat, Adams explores how strong friendships help us deal with disappointment and unforeseen circumstances. The highs and lows of the story are echoed in music written by Adams, featuring a broad range of styles to represent the play’s dynamic shifts.

The Triumph of Horus
Translated by H. W. Fairman
Adapted and directed by Allison Hedges

Considered by some to be the oldest play in existence, “The Triumph of Horus” was discovered in the form of hieroglyphic inscriptions dating back to the second century BCE at Egypt’s Temple of Horus in Edfu. Hedges applies her doctoral research on ancient Egyptian drama to stage this rarely produced play with undergraduate students. This performance will include “The Lamentations of Isis and Nephthys,” a brief ritual drama based on the translation by Miriam Lichtheim.
