Over the past two years Imagination Theater has partnered with the Placerville Kiwani’s Club to reach out to local families in the community.
On Dec. 11, a special, private showing of “A Little Princess,” was held for groups from New Morning Shelter, CASA El Dorado, Family Connections, and Big Brothers Big Sisters.
During intermission, Santa took a break from his Christmas preparations at the North Pole and paid a visit to the children.
“We are happy to be able to support families who may not otherwise be able to see a play,” co-owners of the theater, Lanny Langston and Peter Wolfe, said
This musical which runs through Dec.23 is based on the classic novel, “A Little Princess,” by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
It has a wonderful message about the value and worth of a person by who they are inside and not their outer circumstances. It also captures the special bond between Sara (The Little Princess) and Becky, the house servant at Ms. Minchin’s school.
“A Little Princess” runs through Sunday, Dec. 23 and is suitable for the whole family.
Thursday and Friday shows are at 7 p.m. with matinées at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
Tickets are $10 to $17 and can be purchased online at imagination-theater.org or through the box office at 530-642-0404. Online ticket sales now include credit card, wheelchair and group orders.
