It will be time to hiss the villain this Friday and Saturday night in North Fork as the original production “Silvalinda” premiers at Kennedy Hall at North Fork School. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7 p.m. Desserts, snacks and beverages will be available for purchase and there will be a 50/50 raffle.
North Fork’s Squirrel Cage Theater is joining with the seventh grade class at the School to present this original melodrama as a fundraiser for the students to go next year on a field trip to the Catalina Island Marine Institute at the isthmus on the island. The field trip is traditionally done by the eighth grade class at North Fork School. Catalina Island is 23 miles across the sea from the Southern California town of San Pedro which is also the Port of Los Angeles.
Princess Silvalinda will be played by Natalie Schick with North Fork musician Jeff Gurule as her straight-laced prince. The villain will be portrayed by Squirrel Cage’s resident antagonist, Dave Novell.
The melodrama, written by Squirrel Cage Director Terry Butler, promises music and dance, with a host of fairy tale personalities including fairies, witches, gypsies and even some trees. The large cast of actors and actresses range in age from 8 to 64.
Price is $8 for adults, $4 for children age 12 and under, and $20 for an immediate family.
