“Misadventure at the Lighthouse” by Michele Riml & Michael St. John Smith
June 28 @ 12:00 am - August 18 @ 12:00 am EDT
Competitive Annie is determined to win this year’s Annual Island Scavenger Hunt with her best friend, Kim. But her plans go awry when she has to host her city-slicker cousin Devon. What’s worse, her younger brother Stevie and his faithful dog Rooster also want to tag along. And who’s that salty old guy Devon keeps running into all over town?
When presented with a puzzling disappearance, how will Annie and her friends solve the mystery and save the day?
Green Thumb Theatre is proud to partner with BC Library Association and BC Summer Reading Club to create this new play for young audiences which incorporates this year’s BCSRC mystery theme: “Crack the Case”!
Misadventure at the Lighthouse puts YOU in the writer’s chair – Read the story created by professional playwrights Michele Riml and Michael St. John Smith, follow the clues, and then decide how the characters will crack the case!
Work solo or team up with your friends and family to solve the mystery and even create artwork based on the story.
Visit bcsrc.ca or your local library for all the details and to read Misadventure at the Lighthouse! There is no charge to participate and the program starts June 28!
Story endings and artwork can be submitted at bcsrc.ca until July 26.
The script with its original ending, along with a few selected ending submissions, will be featured at a live online play reading event on August 18 at 2PM PDT. Directed by Ming Hudson, the reading will feature 12 professional actors who have been on stage with Green Thumb, Arts Club, Bard on the Beach, and Stratford, and have also appeared in a host of internationally broadcast television shows, films, and animations!
Due to time constraints we will not be able to share all work submitted, but thank everyone who chooses to participate!
