A Girl Called Opal presented by Theater
Taylor High School Theater Department is proud to present A Girl Called Opal by Robert Lindsey-Nassif. A Girl Called Opal tells the story of Francoise (Heather Robles), the lone survivor of a shipwreck who is adopted a lone woman (Latavia Anderson) in an Oregonian town as a farm hand. Yet the little girl, renamed Opal, is given to flights of fancy and takes it upon herself to bring happiness to everyone in the town. This includes finding a husband for the Thought Girl (Deziree Gonzales), a wife for the Man Who Wears Gray Neckties (Chase Luna), freedom and independence for the Blind Girl (Grace Bentley) and companionship with oddest woman in town, Sadie McKibben (Katherine Henson). Once Opal has set the town to rights, she is convinced her Angel Mother and Father will return to her. This comedy/drama is based on a real little girl who lived at the turn of the twentieth century, recorded in her diary. Taylor High School Theater Department is proud to present this coming of age tale Saturday, November 3rd at 7:30 PM and Sunday, November 4th at 4:30 PM at the Taylor Main Street Auditorium, 3101 N Main St. Tickets will be $5 for adults and $3 for students. Come join us for the magical, fun and sometimes fantastical look at childhood through the eyes of a special child.
