Ashland Children's Theatre presents its 10th Teen Mystery Theatre production August 2017!

Mesmerized

It’s a hot sultry summer in Los Angeles in 1948. But wait! It’s also a chilly New York winter. Mesmerize is like a double feature detective mystery! Detective Milton Brown is trying to find his client’s missing sister in L.A, but he’s also reading the latest detective pulp magazine “The Cases of Casey Carter” who is on “The Case of the Missing Mustache.” The audience gets to see both stories play out on the stage. Two detectives, two capable gals, two villains, two nightclubs, two mesmerizing mysteries! 

Saturday, Aug 5th at 2:00pm and 7:00pm                                                                                                    Sunday, Aug 6th at 4:00pm                                                                                                                                      The Community Center, 59 Winburn Way in Ashland                                                                                             Tickets  $5/$10 available at Tree House Books and Music Coop in Ashland.

The Peter Pan Project

plus Neverland, a short companion play presented by Young Performers

The Peter Pan Project is the story of Peter Pan who has lost his “Lost Boys” and is looking for some more boys to lose...or boys to be lost...new lost boys!  Fairies and pirates join the adventures as Tinker Bell tries to help Peter, even though Queen Titania has forbidden it. Captain Hook and his pirates follow Peter here to Everland, and that can’t be good!

Neverland, a short companion play to The Peter Pan Project, brings more pirates and fairies together in the pursuit of treasure, and preparation for the Fairy Fun Ball, welcoming the audience into the magical land, second star to the right.
