This year The Rehoboth Summer Children’s Theatre will celebrate their 40th Anniversary by hitting the road with the classic French fairy tale Puss in Boots. This delightful, imaginative production will travel to locations throughout Lower Delaware.
There are three special performances: Nassau Valley Winery, Lewes, Thursday, July 28 at 6:30 PM; The Freeman Stage, Selbyville, Saturday, August 6, 10:00 AM and Lewes Canalfront Park, Thursday, August 11, 6:30 PM. All these shows are free and open to the public. However, some may require registration or advance tickets. Families should check ahead before attending.
Puss in Boots is the story of an enchanted cat who uses her charm and wits to win the hand of the princess for the poor miller’s son. The fabulous feline weaves a beguiling spell around the king, his daughter and a grumpy ogre, to provide the happiest ending to this delightful tale. In the tradition of RSCT, the play is performed entirely by two actors. Maranatha Leigh and Ethan Jovanovic employ their numerous stage skills to bring the seven characters to life. Lightning-quick costume changes and a lively sense of humor are the hallmarks of this family-fun show. Puss in Boots is one of more than 30 shows created and originally performed by company founders Elise and Steve Seyfried.
