Freddyburg Youth Theater held three “one-act” classics featuring young thespians ranging in ages from elementary through high school.
“Sasha and the Pearl,” by Rudy Linke, featured the youngest troupe and told the underwater adventure story in which a princess is held captive by an evil witch, and the main character has to make difficult choices to save a friend.
Middle schoolers staged “The Velveteen Rabbit,” by Margery Williams, and the oldest cast of youth performed “And Scene!” by J.D. Davis, a look at a writer’s struggles with his own characters, featuring western conflict, superheroes with humorous flaws, and a love story that mirrored the author’s own experiences.
