The Cascade Christian High School drama students entertained a full audience with their production of “The Enchanted Bookshop” by Todd Wallinger*, on Thursday, April 26.

The drama students showed great dedication as they devoted their lunch and after school hours since February to bring to us this lively, funny and wonderfully enjoyable play. Special appreciation is extended to Mrs. Fauth, for her dedication to the drama program at CCHS!

Synopsis: During the day, A Likely Story may look like any other used bookstore. But at night, it’s a place where the magic happens. That’s when the characters inside the books come alive. Six of those characters — Dorothy Gale, Robin Hood, Pollyanna, Sherlock Holmes, Heidi, and Tom Sawyer — long to help Margie, the scatterbrained owner, save her struggling store. But they’re not allowed to leave the building or be seen by human eyes. So when trouble strikes they are torn should they warn Margie and risk disappearing forever? Or can they find a way to defeat the problem without being seen? Featuring additional appearances by such beloved literary characters as the Queen of Hearts, Long John Silver, Fagin, Pippi Long Stocking, Cruella DeVil, Doctor Dolittle, The Wicked Witch and Frankenstein this charming comedy celebrates the joy of reading in a fresh, fun-filled way.
