Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse
A good option to entertain your kids on this rainy day…
A great production starting later this month at the Monroe Theatrespace (720 Monroe Street).
Fun play for all ages!
MSTKids, Mile Square Theatre’s theatre for youth program, kicks off with Kevin Kling’s stage adaptation of 2005 Caldecott Medal Winner Kevin Henkes’s popular children’s book Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, opening October 23 at the Monroe Theatrespace. A comical play about family, school, friendship, and forgiveness, Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is suited for kids of all ages and their families.
Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse is directed by Mile Square Theatre’s Artistic Director Chris O’Connor who, as an actor, was part of the early development of this play at the Seattle Children’s Theatre. In the role of Lilly, the professional cast is headed by MST company member Blaire Brooks, who is well remembered for her comedic work in Scapin and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. While not gracing the MST stage, Blaire has worked in off-Broadway productions at Manhattan Theatre Club and The Public Theater, in commercials, and has appeared on Law & Order and the Guiding Light.
This production will also feature the work of Puppet Heap, a puppet design company residing at Monroe Center, who lists among its clients Walt Disney Co, Jim Henson Puppets, and the Sesame Workshop.
