“The Story Club” was written by Nicole B. Adkins, and it’s the story of Ivy, who everyone agrees is the best storyteller—that’s why she gets to make up all the stories and cast all the parts. She is the Queen of Story Club. But the Queen’s subjects are suddenly getting restless: little brother Charlie won’t stop practicing karate and friend Justine starts to get ideas of her own. When a clever new neighbor arrives to challenge Ivy for the throne of Fairy Land, Story Club may never be the same again.

The show is being directed by Alicia Hall. For audition information, contact Alicia at
