The Hampstead Stage Company will be presenting the play, Stories in the Dark! "This story centers around a young boy named Aratus. Like many young people, he isn't so sure what he wants to be when he grows up. He is sent to help his grandmother, Yaya, clean up her craft shop. She is noted as one of the finest craftspeople in all of Greece creating beautiful masks, swords, and shields. While cleaning up, Aratus accidentally breaks Yaya's very first mask. When it breaks, a goddess is released into the shop. Unfortunately, the goddess cannot remember who she is or how she got trapped in the mask. Aratus offers to help the goddess figure out who she is by going through some of the stories in the stars. The constellations are named after many Greek heroes, creatures, and gods and goddesses, so surely the stars would help them figure out who the goddess is!"
This program is for ages 5 and up, and registration is required. Registration begins on July 24th.
