Sally Cotter and the Censored Stone

Sally Cotter

When Sally falls asleep while reading books about a certain juvenile wizard, she dreams that she is a student at Frogbull Academy of Sorcery. But danger is lurking, and it is up to Sally and her new friends Dave and Harmonica to save the day. Will she become the hero like the one in her favorite series? And who is the mysterious Censor who keeps rewriting the story as it goes along? This parody of certain well-known and well-loved book series will keep you laughing the whole way through.

COVID – 19 Note: Patrons will need to follow all current CDC Guidelines in regards to facial coverings. Seating will be arranged to maximize space between chairs. If needed we will transition to an online platform for performances. See for updates on performances.
