Central College’s upcoming theatrical performance will start in March with a trip to outer space.
“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,” by Ernie Nolan, follows a new galactic recruit, a missing star and a bit of unexpected mayhem in the world of the Star Keepers. Every night, Star Keepers make sure stars are awake and ready to shine, but what happens when one goes missing? This interactive play takes the audience on a journey that reminds us that mistakes happen, but no problem is too big if you ask for help.
“Twinkle is a perfect way for 4- and 5-year-olds to engage with live performance, but it’s also going to be wonderous for regular theatergoers too,” says guest director Andy McGuire, a 2010 Central graduate and executive director of the George Daily Auditorium in Oskaloosa, Iowa.
Admission is free to “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” with performances at 6:30 p.m. Friday, March 3, and Saturday, March 4, or 1 and 4 p.m., Sunday, March 5, at the Kruidenier Center on Central’s campus. Seating is limited to 50 per performance. Central’s Theatre Honor Fraternity, Alpha Psi Omega, encourages donations of school supplies.
