“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.” ---Groucho Marx. Pleasant Plains Public Library is in deep trouble, and it will take a minor miracle to save it. Or perhaps a group of classic life-sized books and some ornery teens can help? Red Lawson, head librarian, has a tough choice to make. Stay and save the library from destruction? Or move on to manage Gourmet Gadgets, the brand new electronics chain next door? Picture classic books like Little Women and Moby Dick jumping right off the shelves to work their “magic” and prove to her and some neighborhood teens that books are still valuable and worth reading. The show offers actors of all ability levels a wonderful chance to play some memorable characters, including Theo the Thesaurus, Webster the Dictionary, Cindy/Cinderella, Scarlet from the Scarlet Letter, and more. But will it all fall apart as the books and teens combine forces to influence Red’s decision?
