The Gingerbread Man

Music and Lyrics by Paul Lewis. Book by Paul Lewis and Carissa Meisner Smit.

July 20–28, 2019

Valley Center Stage

Join us for The Gingerbread Man, an action packed, musical comedy for all ages! Narrated by a wise-cracking crow, The Gingerbread Man is a tale of unlikely friendships and the wonder that happens when love, kindness and the power of imagination come together. Gretchen, a young orphan with a heart of gold, hopes to bring life back to Tin Town by helping the kindly baker and his wife make a “delectable,” “whimsical” and “respectable” dessert in the form of a gingerbread man.  With an added touch of love and imagination, the gingerbread man comes to life and must run-run-run as fast as he can to save the town and his friends!

Valley Center Stage and Si View Metro Parks are partnering again to bring another fun family show for a FREE outdoor theater experience on Saturday, July 20th at 10:30 am and Sunday, July 21st at 4:00 pm.  Bring a blanket or a low seated chair, and enjoy a memorable afternoon of performing arts in your local park. The play will be staged on the lawn at Si View Park. In the event of inclement weather, the show will move indoors to Si View Gym. Sponsored by Si View Metro Parks.

If you cannot attend the outdoor performance, you won’t have to miss the play!  Please join us at Valley Center Stage for three more performances the following week, Thursday, July 25th at 7:30 pm, Saturday, July 27th at 2:00pm and Sunday, July 28th at 2:00pm. Tickets are available on-line or at the door.

Directed by Julie Lester, in her directorial debut.  Julie has appeared in several productions at Valley Center Stage, most recently as a blues-belting nun in Nunsense, and in last summer’s theater-in-the-park production of The Bremen Town Black Cat Band.  Julie has also appeared in productions at Theatre Black Dog (Snoqualmie) and Wenatchee Valley Theater.
