Event Notes


Highland Arts Theatre Presents


A new play by Lindsay Thompson

Directed by Rachael Murphy


Emmaline Vance is perfectly fine living her life as a single librarian, following her own rules and staying in her own lane. So why do the story time puppets keep talking to her?

When fifteen-year-old Addison Woods bursts into the library looking for someplace to hide, Em decides to break the rules and get involved. But does trying to help only make things worse? And who is she really helping anyway? Tie in a hidden wedding dress, an ugly cactus, a handsome exterminator and an anonymous mouse? Suddenly Em and Addy start to find something that is long overdue. A comedy about love, lonely people and our doomed best intentions.

From the writer of "Herstory", "See Jane Run", & "Sweet Enough" and the HAT Mainstage debut from the director of "Mary Poppins JR", "Shrek the Musical JR", and "Alice in Wonderland".
