The Pollyanna Theatre Presents “Trouble on the Double” This Weekend
Central Texas’ most well-known children’s theatre company, Pollyanna Theatre, a resident company of the Long Center for the Performing Arts, presents “Trouble on the Double” by Holly Hepp-Galván. This new play, best suited for children ages 4 - 10, opens July 9 - 17 at the Rollins Studio Theatre at the Long Center for the Performing Arts, 701 West Riverside, Austin, TX 78704.
“Trouble on the Double” follows the story of young twins. These two may look alike, but their personalities are very different. While one is brave and not afraid to try anything, the other is timid and does not like to take any risks. Can these siblings learn to balance each other out? How much adventure is fun and how much is dangerous? Hepp-Galvan’s newest play for Pollyanna will have audiences both thinking and laughing as the action unfolds. This production is sure to be a perfect summertime trip to the theatre for both summer campers and families.
“Trouble on the Double” is set in a larger than life world in which children can climb and jump vast distances, extremely large animals wave ten-foot-long tails, and shadows come to life. Set designers Holly and Patrick Crowley will construct the world, and projection designer and puppeteer Sara Farr will create the digital puppets and work with the performers to form the shadow puppets.
It’s hard to leave home sometimes – trust us, we know. But Oxford at Tech Ridge Apartments in Austin, Texas believes it is important to not only stay active in your community, but to also express curiosity about new subjects. This event is the perfect chance to spread your roots and learn new things!
