Once Upon a Pandora’s Box Nov. 7 and 8

11/05/2019

Join us in the Elementary Drama Room this Thursday and Friday night at 7:00 p.m. for the Runnels premiere of the comedy Once Upon a Pandora’s Box. Presented by the 6th and 7th grade and directed by Julie Horridge, this show is sure to be fun, exciting, and fast paced!
   
A mash up of Greek myth and fairy tale, the play begins when the Greek god Zeus rounds up five fairy tale villains and locks them inside Pandora’s Box, which magically is transported to a New York apartment in the 21st century. 
     
At the apartment, young Tabitha and her brother Louis discover the box and open it, allowing the storybook baddies to escape and run wild. In rummaging through Tabitha’s belongings, the villains find some stories she has written down in a notebook. They plan to take control of her fictional characters and change the plots – but not in a good way. Will Tabitha be able to harness the power of her own storytelling or will the villains take her characters down a much darker path than she had planned?
       
Once Upon a Pandora’s Box runs Nov. 7 and 8 at 7:00 p.m. in the Elementary Drama Room. Get tickets at the door for $5.00 each.
