Liberty Theatre Presents
The Stinky Cheese Man
Fridays - Oct. 27 & Nov. 3 at 7 p.m.
Saturdays - Oct. 28 & Nov. 4 at 3 p.m.
In the Liberty High School Performing Arts Center
The play is based on a 1992 storybook of the same name, written by Jon Scieszka and illustrated by Lane Smith. The book reimagines and satirizes classic fairy tales for young readers, wearing its postmodern heart right on its sleeve, and nearly 30 years after its publication, it has become a classic in its own right. Like the book on which it’s based, the stage version of “The Stinky Cheese Man,” adapted by playwright John Glore, features an assortment of thinly connected vignettes in which characters break the conventions of their fairytale archetypes. Because it’s being performed rather than read, the stage version also plays with and against conventional theater tropes, frequently breaking the fourth wall and, at times, openly mocking itself. Come see this irrelevant, fun and engaging performance! This is an all ages show. General admission $5 at the door. 1 hour running time.
