Village Theatre Presents “A Proper Place”
April 28 – May 21
2710 Wetmore Avenue, Everett
Downton Abbey meets Gilligan’s Island in this hysterical new musical based on J.M. Barrie’s play, The Admirable Crichton. It’s 1902, and Lord Loam’s family outing has gone horribly awry, landing the family on a deserted island. Stranded alone, their trusty system of societal hierarchy begins to slip away as their only hope for survival turns out to be allowing the lowly butler to take the lead. With a score of lively and tuneful music, this romantic comedy will sweep you away in an adventure of family drama and forbidden love. www.snohomish.org/VillageTheatre_proper
