Princeton Area Chamber of Commerce & Main Street recently issued the following announcement.
The Prairie Arts Center is pleased to commemorate the 20th anniversary of children’s theater by presenting once again the first children’s musical that we ever produced on the PAC stage: "Tumbleweeds". The 1998 production was a cooperative venture between Act IV community theater and the Prairie Arts Council. We also produced Tumbleweeds in 2008 for our 10thanniversary of children’s theater at the PAC.
Based on the comic strip created by Tom K. Ryan, “Tumbleweeds” centers around the title character, a cowpoke who returns to his hometown of Grimy Gulch, population 49. After venturing out of the Wild West, Tumbleweeds is determined to improve his town. Unfortunately, this interferes with the nefarious plans of Throckmorton Fleesum, his partner, Clementine Greedy, and Clementine’s not-so-bright cousin, Snake-Eye McFoul, who plan to demolish the town and sell the land for development to the Choo-Choo Railroad Company. With a cast of zany characters, such as Hildegard Hamhocker, who has everything she wants EXCEPT a man – ANY man, the trio of Undertaker Claude Clay, his Gravedigger, Wart Wimble, and the Hangman, Hogarth Hemp, the Poohawk Indian tribe, a group of visiting schoolgirls, their teacher, Miss Prudence Lovely, the Grimy Gulch townspeople, and, of course, Tumbleweeds’ faithful horse, Epic, the show has many speaking parts and both singing and non-singing roles.
Location: Prairie Arts Center Theater, 24 Park Avenue East, Princeton IL 61356
Date/Time Information: Showtimes are April 27th and 28th at 7:00pm, and April 29th at 3:00pm
