Drama Program Performs Adventures in CandyLand

Drama and MusicAbout 80 people turned out for the Music and Drama programs opening night of Adventures in CandyLand. The participants in the program worked with 4th Wall production to pick their characters develop the storyline, write their lines and create the decorations and props.

Adventures in CandyLand is about a magical land where candy grows out of the ground.  The royalty living in the castle decide to throw a party but they are foiled by Marshy the Marshmellow Guy and Gloppy the Chocolate King.  Marshy and Gloppy start turning people into chocolate statues and killing the candy crops.  Eventually, everyone is able to live happily ever after once Gloppy and Marshy are invited to the party and no longer feel left out of the festivities
