Tickets are now available for PCT’s Winter 2021 production of Magic Tree House: A Ghost Tale for Mr. Dickens JR.!

Magic Tree House: A Ghost Tale for Mr. Dickens JR. is an adaptation of book #44 of Mary Pope Osborne’s award-winning fantasy adventure books from the Magic Tree House book series, which has sold more than 100 million copies and is available in more than 100 countries around the world. Jack and Annie’s tree house takes them to Victorian London in this holiday-themed story, where they learn the importance of charity and kindness through their friendship with legendary author, Charles Dickens.

THE STORY: The magic tree house whisks Jack and Annie back in time to the foggy streets of Victorian London, where they meet the famous, well-off author, Charles Dickens, who has a severe case of writer’s block. Jack and Annie also witness the hardships faced by the poor, and their efforts to help only land them in prison.  Mr. Dickens rescues Jack and Annie, and they, in turn, help him escape the sad memories that haunt him. In the process, they inspire Mr. Dickens to write one of the greatest holiday stories of all time.

Performance dates are December 3-5 and 10-12. Performance times are 8:00 PM on Fridays and 2:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.

The production will be directed by Pamela Villarreal.

For all of our upcoming performances of Magic Tree House: A Ghost Tale for Mr. Dickens JR., all patrons, staff, and volunteers will be required to properly wear face masks at all times while inside the theater building, regardless of vaccination status. Free, disposable masks will be available to patrons upon request.

PCT is excited to announce audition information for its Spring 2022 production of Arsenic and Old Lace!

ABOUT THE SHOW:

The play is a farcical dark comedy revolving around the Brewster family, descended from the Mayflower settlers but now composed of maniacs, most of them homicidal. The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, murderous family and local police in Brooklyn, New York, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves, Elaine Harper, who lives next door and is the daughter of the local minister.

His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made elderberry wine laced with arsenic, strychnine, and “just a pinch” of cyanide; a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home (which then serve as graves for the aunts’ victims; he thinks that they died of yellow fever); and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Einstein to conceal his identity, and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff.

Auditions will be held at Epiphany Lutheran Church (268 Hill Road North, Pickerington, OH 43147). Character descriptions are available HERE and you can download an audition form to complete ahead of time by clicking HERE.
