Live Theatre Drive-in - Miss Electricity (Children's Theatre)

  • Overview

    Ten-year-old Violet is determined to show the world, not to mention the cool kids at school, just how special she is. With the help of her assistant Freddy, she sets out to break a world record but becomes accidentally extraordinary when she’s struck by lightning, twice, and gains control over all things electric. Under the name Miss Electricity, Violet zaps her way through circuits, bullies, and tests, but could lose everything when the power goes to her head. The cast includes Peter Dean, Gbomi Kayode, Hudson Pulver, and Jada Smith. The show is 50 minutes and performed without intermission.

    Youths ages 5 and up and their families can stay after Miss Electricity for 45 minutes of fun, outdoor theatre games. Playhouse classroom favorites like Frogger, Join the Scene, and more have all been adapted to accommodate physical distancing. The focus will be on games that use bodies rather than voices for those who wish to wear a mask. Cost is $5.00 per participant collected at the event; no pre-registration required.

    10:00 AM, Saturdays, July 11, July 25-Aug. 15, 2020
