The Scarecrow and His Servant at The Children’s Theatre Company

The Scarecrow and His Servant open this week at The Children’s Theatre Company in Minneapolis.
The play is an adaptation of an internationally celebrated book by Philip Pullman and is recommended for 3rd grade and up.

When a lightning strike suddenly brings the Scarecrow to life, he sets out on an elaborate quest for fame, valor, and romance (with a fickle broom). The scarecrow is joined by a sharp-witted peasant boy as they fight hunger, the greedy Buffalonis and their poison factory, and theatre owners who don’t recognize the importance of a prop as they make their way back home to Spring Valley. The contrary Scarecrow may argue with stubborn road signs along the way, but he would give his servant boy the coat off his back with his back still attached.

All five of CTC’s Resident Acting Company members, Gerald Drake, Dean Holt, Reed Sigmund, Autumn Ness and new Company member Traci Allen, whom you’ll recognize from Cinderella, will be featured playing multiple roles.

The Scarecrow and His Servant is directed by Peter Brosius.
The Scarecrow and His Servant runs on the UnitedHealth Group Stage for a limited run March 11 through April 6, 2014. Tickets are on sale now and range from $10-$47. {Each Sunday a limited number of $10 tickets are available for purchase by calling the Children’s Theatre directly.}
