My oldest daughter Clara and I always look forward to our momma/daughter theatre dates at Encore Stage & Studio. Last weekend we saw a performance of their latest show – A Night at the Wax Museum. This theatre company that is “for kids, by kids!” is always so entertaining and this production was no exception!
For six students, class is back in session when they take a summer school trip with their teacher to the local wax museum to help preserve the past. Between a hilarious love triangle involving Cleopatra and Henry VIII and a widespread hunt for buried treasure with Blackbeard and Butch Cassidy, it will be a trip for the history books!
This production includes a large cast of over 20 actors and there is never a shortage of action on the stage as the historical wax figures come to life and race to uncover an ancient treasure rumored to be hidden somewhere in the museum. There are sword fights and lots of humor woven into this performance as the students work together to save the wax museum. The set and costumes are also very well done and overall this is a fun family show not to be missed! There are four more performances remaining this weekend:
• Friday, March 17, 2017 at 7:30pm
