You don’t need to be familiar with a certain magical book series, but this is definitely a hilarious parody. See our thespians portray Wayne and his friends, none of whom are destined for anything great, as they are sorted by a hat of sorts into the PUFFS.
This play is rated PG-13 for some language and innuendo. Be prepared to laugh. A lot.
(No F bombs! )
If you thought you knew the story of 'The Princess and The Pea,' you may be in for a walloping surprise!
Did you know, for instance, that Princess Winnifred actually swam the moat to reach Prince Dauntless the Drab? Or that Lady Larken's love for Sir Harry provided a rather compelling reason that she reach the bridal altar post haste? Or that, in fact, it wasn't the pea at all that caused the princess a sleepless night?

The Burnsville High School Theater Guild announced this week that it received a $500 grant from the California Casualty music and arts grant program. The grant supplements the program’s budget to support theatrical productions.
“When budgets are tight, an extra boost like this can go a long way,” Director Amy Stead said. “We’re grateful for the support and I’m excited about what our students will be able to do this year, thanks in part to this grant.”
The Burnsville High School Theatre Guild began participating this year in Hennepin Theatre Trust’s Spotlight Education, a program that evaluates casts, crews and technicians as well as providing master classes for high school theatre students.
The school’s two musicals, “The Music Man” and “Mary Poppins,” both earned outstanding rankings in recent recognition from Hennepin Theatre Trust. Along with these high ranks, came specific feedback for many individual performers both on stage and behind the scenes.
The award-winning play, “The Crucible,” will be performed at Burnsville High School at 7 p.m. on May 17, 18 and 19 and at 2:30 p.m. on May 19, in the Mraz Center, 600 E. Highway 13.
The play focuses on a farmer, his wife, and a young servant-girl who maliciously causes the wife's arrest for witchcraft. The farmer brings the girl to court to admit the lie, and the plot thickens. Written by Arthur Miller, “The Crucible” won the Tony Award for Best Play in 1953.
