The Mar-Va Theater Performing Arts Center

Theater to present 'Pippi Longstocking'

POCOMOKE CITY -- From Aug. 2-13, the Mar-Va Theater Performing Arts Center will offer young actors an opportunity to perform in a musical adaptation of "Pippi Longstocking." The famous stories about the girl wonder were created by Swedish author, Astrid Lindgren, and are among the most translated children's books in the world. The musical adaptation, including lyrics, music and stage play, are written by local composer Gwen Skeens, whose musical adaptation of Tom Sawyer was presented last year by members of Mar-Va's Theater Academy. Assisting Skeens as accompanist will be Janice Boettger, retired music teacher and noted pianist and organist at Antioch Methodist Church in Princess Anne. The cast for this production will require both male and female actors, ages 8-15, and will feature multiple actresses in the role of Pippi.

Throughout the two-week workshop, students will have instruction in singing, movement, improvisation, elocution and many other skills related to the development of stagecraft. The cost for the musical session is $200 for Mar-Va members and $250 for non-members. On the evening of Aug. 13, at 7 p.m., a public performance of the musical will be given. For further information regarding registration or tickets, call 443-614-0830.
