The Maranatha Players celebrate 10 years with the musical, Flapper!
Over the past 10 years, the Maranatha Players at the Maranatha Christian School have enjoyed the opportunity to entertain the public with many exciting, family friendly musicals.
In 2002, they began performing in the Glendale Studio Theatre until they were able to create their own theatre at Maranatha Christian School in 2005.
The Maranatha Players love to create an experience for their audience so that they can be taken away from their cares and worries to a place where they can laugh and be entertained.
Becky Strickland has been at the helm all these years and is as enthusiastic as ever. The shows have taken them from being on the high seas with pirates, to Louise’s Luncheonette in the 1950s, to surfing on the beaches of Avalon.
Such excitement has led them to once again step on the stage with a high action musical, Flapper!
Flapper takes place during the colourful decade of the Roaring 20s.
The show celebrates the era and introduces us to Polly Pepper, a young flapper who really knows how to live in the time of Stutz bearcat automobiles, Ziegfeld girls, raccoon coats, goldfish swallowers, speak easies, and gangsters.
Polly is about to turn 18 and will inherit a fabulous diamond.
She is planning a madcap birthday party and is inviting all her pals to come out and help her celebrate the big day.
But, there’s trouble ahead! Mona and a couple of two-bit mobsters are planning to grab the necklace and make a cool $1 million. Not only that, there are two con artists on the loose trying to convince Polly’s aunt Augusta that Manchurian stocks are really a bargain.
The Maranatha Players want to invite everyone to join them for their 10th annual musical production, Flapper!, on stage, at the Maranatha theatre Dec. 1-3 and 8-9 starting at 7 p.m., and Dec. 10 at 1 p.m. and 8 p.m.
This family-friendly musical is an entertaining show. Tickets are on sale now at Wise Owl Toys and Maranatha Christian School; adults (over 13) $10, and children and seniors $8.
