Find what happens when young heroines Brandie, Mollie, and Emma team up to discover the secrets in "The House on Polka-Dot Hill," a short play by Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU) alumna Donna Imsund. The play is one of several kid-length live performances that are part of NDNU's 17th Annual Labor Day Festival.
The other is a staged reading of "The Foolish Fairytale" by Karen Byrnes, also an NDNU alumna. It's the story of an unhappy kingdom known as Hubbalubbadingdong.
Both the play and the reading will take the stage Saturday, Aug. 24 at 1:00 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 31 at 1:00 p.m. at NDNU Theatre.
The plays feature many local children and even a teacher or two, including several from Central Elementary School. A "Polka-Dot" reception will be held after the performances so audience members may meet the cast.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for youth (ages 5-15); cash only. For tickets, email RFritz@ndnu.edu, or RFDutchInc@aol.com.
