Austin Playhouse is excited to announce their Spring Theatre for Youth Production of The Imaginators by Dwayne Hartford. The play tells the story of a brother and sister, Tim and Ann, who have just moved to a new town. Tim loves to play games and make up stories. However, Anne refuses to play with him, fearing that someone from their new school or, even worse, their popular neighbor Nina, will make fun of her. When Nina comes over, she takes Tim and Anne on a make-believe adventure using only boxes and whatever they can find in the garage to create their imaginary world. Eventually, by learning their own strengths, working as a team, and using the unlimited power of their imaginations, they escape the child eating monster, Mooklecratz.
“Austin Playhouse chose The Imaginators because it encourages audiences, young and old, to nurture their imagination and never lose their sense of play,” says Marie Fahlgren, Austin Playhouse’s Theatre for Youth Coordinator.
