ClassAct Dramatics Presents
by Louis Sachar
Nov 8 - 16
You’re sure to get caught up in this play adapted from Louis Sachar’s Newberry Award-Winning Novel for young adults, adapted by the author of the novel himself. The past and present co-exist on stage to unravel this compelling story in a uniquely theatrical way.
“Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes. It doesn’t take long for Stanley to realize there’s more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something. But what could be buried under a dried-up lake? Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption.” – Louis Sachar
