Electric Darkness

featuring the SCR Conservatory's Junior Players
March 12, 2022 - March 13, 2022

The carnival is in town and little Francine is so mesmerized by the clowns that she follows them and gets lost. Finally found, she gets a strict warning from her mother​—never wander off because people steal children and eat them! Later that night, older sister Marie annoyed by Francine, weaves a haunting bedtime story about the carnival, a ghost train and a clever ogress who keeps the clowns well-fed with their favorite delicacy. The Junior Players, advanced students in SCR’s Theatre Conservatory, present this funny, spooky tale of sibling rivalry, where dreams mix with reality and the moon is always watching over you.
