The Enchanted Bookshop (play 2018)
When the original director and some cast members exited the Driftwood show late last week, just days before the first performance, stage manager Valerie Parker picked up the reins. Her daughter is 30 now. Parker focused on pulling everyone together and filling the gaps in time for the first performance, which was early this week. Julayne Fleury led a team to design and build the set in just four days; Parker worked with producer Valerie Sullivan to get the costumes finished in time; and the newly added performers learned their roles quickly. Onstage, a few Harbor theater veterans are joined by a plethora of young actors.

By Todd Wallinger. During the day, A Likely Story looks like any other bookshop, but at night the characters inside the books come alive. Classic characters — including Dorothy Gale, Pollyanna, Heidi, Tom Sawyer and more — long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store. When a pair of smugglers come looking for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of the books, the characters must find a way to rescue the bookshop without being seen. Join us on this magical mission to celebrate the enchantment and joy of reading. We recommend this production for ages 4 and older.
