Rose Hill Players presents "Let the Games Begin"!

November 12, 2018

Game on!  Do you enjoy playing games?  Tired of playing single player want to join us on our next singing and dancing adventure?  If that all sounds appealing to you, come audition for the next play production by The Rose Hill Players.  No experience is necessary and all students (Preschool through 6th grade) are invited to audition.

 

This year, The Rose Hill Players will perform “Let the Games Begin.”  When three technology obsessed youngsters visit their grandfather, he becomes increasingly frustrated with their disdain for anything other than their phones and the internet. He reveals a pair of very unusual seven-sided dice that he explains was given to him in the Far East by a wise old mystic. Despite Grandad's stern warning not to touch the dice because of their magical powers, mischievous Marney scoffs at the idea and rolls the strangely-shaped dice. As lights flash, thunder claps and eerie, strange noises are heard, the petrified trio is transported to the strange land of Lady Fortune where they become pawns in her games. Each of them must compete against the devious, devilish diva in a game of their choice to win their freedom and avoid being a game piece in Fortune's land forever! They encounter many eccentric and humorous board game characters as they embark on their journey: the pompous Stationmasters and the Fleet Street 'hack' Reporters in Monopoly, the defensive suspects in Cluedo and the quarreling Castles in the final game of Chess. Can they manage to play the games for REAL and defeat the conniving Lady Fortune? Will they learn that it's better to ditch the surreal for the real deal?!
