SEASIDE – Clatsop Children’s The-
ater Company presents three performances
of “The Enchanted Bookshop,” at 6:30 Fri-
day and Saturday, Aug. 16 and 17, and at
2:30 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 18, at the Seaside
Civic and Convention Center. The show is
free and donations to the Children’s Theater
are welcome. Doors open 30 minutes prior
to each performance.
The play is a fresh, fun-filled celebra-
tion of reading that brings a vast array of
beloved literary characters to the stage who
come alive each night at a used bookstore
called A Likely Story.
The cast of “The Enchanted Bookshop”
is comprised of 16 elementary, middle and
high school-aged children from across Clat-
sop County.
The play is written by Todd Wallinger.
There are six main haracters: Dorothy Gale,
Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes,
Heidi and Tom Sawyer who band together
to help Margie, the absent-minded owner,
save her struggling store.
Though they’re not allowed to leave
the building or be seen by human eyes. So
when a pair of smugglers comes looking
for a stolen necklace hidden inside one of
the books, the characters are torn between
warning Margie – and facing the risk of dis-
appearing forever – or trying to defeat the
crooks on their own.
The company is sponsored by Sunset
Empire Park and Recreation District and
Jeremy Mills State Farm.This will be third
annual summer production put on by the
Clatsop Children’s Theater Company in
conjunction with the recreation district.
