On Saturday and Sunday, December 3rd and 4th, CAST children’s theatre presents “And Then There Was One A Spoof”.  Ten people are brought together by mysterious invitation to the Reef Mansion on a tiny, isolated island.  Not one of them knows the host, who is nowhere to be found.  Still, he has left an ominous recording that bodes evil for the guests.  Like the chocolate soldiers that inexplicably disappear from the mantel one by one, the guests begin to die one by one..or do they? Come see this funny non-musical performance at the CAST studio located at 113 Summit Street in Manchester. On Saturday, December 3rd, the show is at 7:00 pm and on Sunday, December 4th, the show is at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $10.00 plus service fee if purchased online in advance and if there are any tickets available at the door, those tickets will be $12.00 each cash or check. Audience members are required to wear masks for this performance. Purchase tickets online at https://casttheatre.yapsody.com

On Thursday and Friday, December 8th, 9th, 15th & 16th, CAST children’s theatre presents “The Grunch”. Inspired by “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”, The Grunch tells the story of Rudy Grunch, a grumpy 6th grader who always feels like an outsider. When the entire school gets excited about the annual school musical, he comes up with the perfect plan to ruin it for everyone; he’ll steal the sets, costumes and lights the night before it happens. But will the spirit of theatre prevail? Come see our Saturday class on the 8th & 9th and our Monday class on the 15th & 16th at Buckley Elementary School, 250 Vernon Street, Manchester at 7:30 pm. Doors open at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $10.00 plus service fee if purchased online in advance and $12.00 cash/check at the door. Purchase tickets online at https://casttheatre.yapsody.com
