From July 17- 20, 2013, PaintBox Theatre (a branch of New Century Theatre) presents “Once Upon a Cool Motorcycle Dude,” a play for all audiences, but especially children. Paradise City Press attended a recent rehearsal, and chatted with artistic director Tom McCabe, and actress Linda Tardif. For more information visit http://www.newcenturytheatre.org/paintbox.html.
From their website:
“Based on Kevin O’Malley’s fabulous picture book. Two fourth graders are assigned to tell a fairy tale. They decide to create their own. She insists on including a princess with lots of ponies and unicorns. He demands a very cool motorcycle dude. How will they ever work this out? Watch them blend their ideas and build a story that turns into a most exciting fairy tale. Read the book. It’s in your library. Then come and see what we do.”
