Please prepare a one-minute monologue, and be ready to do some reading from the script.
Time Out for Theatre at the Ritz is excited to present Prancer, a Plays for New Audiences play directed by Suzanne Reese-Mills. Time Out for Theatre is a children’s theatre program by young performers for young audiences! Schools schedule field trips December 6-9 to attend these productions, and we will also have two public performances on December 10 at 2PM and 7:30PM.
The Story: Young Jessica Riggs’ family has fallen on hard times. Still, she keeps her belief in Santa Claus and the idea that there are miracles in the world. When an injured reindeer appears in Jessica’s backyard, she believes it is Prancer. While she is nursing the creature back to health, the whole community of Three Oaks eventually learns about Prancer, causing big problems for Jessica as she tries to return the reindeer home. Based on the cherished film, Prancer, this piece uses a heartwarming story and breathtaking puppetry to bring light into your holiday season.
