Priscilla Beach Theatre, Priscilla Beach, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA


Priscilla Beach Theatre began its 77th season this summer.  Always creative, they erected a tent to hold performances while the barn theatre is repaired and refurbished.  Although mostly an opportunity for children to get a taste of acting, stagecraft, and teamwork, they do offer adult performances as well.  Paul Newman, Rob Reiner to name just two had stints at the Priscilla Beach Theatre early in  their careers.

The audience begins to gather for a Saturday morning performance of  "Fairy Tale Courtroom," wherein both the Big Bad Wolf and the Wicked Witch are on trial for stirring up trouble. The audience serves as the jury.

Artistic Director and longtime creative force at the theatre, Geronimo Sands introduces the play to the audience.

The judge presides over the court.

The judge and  prosecutor gesticulate wildly as the Big Bad Wolf pleads her case.

The judge is incredulous at Little Red Riding Hood Grandma's testimony.

The scarecrow from the Wizard of  Oz had to testify also.

The Wicked Witch listening to testimony against her.



Dorothy with her ruby slippers made an appearance, too

And in the audience, a dad and son watch attentively.  

The cast takes a final bow after the audience shouted out the verdict - many said guilty and many said not guilty. But everyone enjoyed the show, actors and audience alike. It's a small intimate setting.  Perfect for a summer morning of entertainment.
