Frankfort resident Madison Rogers is featured in the all-star production of “No Strings Attached” by StagePlay: Musical Theater for Kids! on Saturday, August 25.
Madison was in StagePlay’s spring production of “No Strings Attached” at the Lemont Park District, playing a different character than in the all-star show. Thanks to the cast’s familiarity with the script, only eight rehearsals were needed to mount the production. Unlike the Disney version of “Pinocchio,” this musical is more closely based on the original story written by Carlo Collodi, according to the production’s director, Monica Minogue.
The book is by Patrick Rainville Dorn, and music and lyrics by Bill Francouer. StagePlay’s All-Star performance of “No Strings Attached” will be at 7 pm on Saturday, August 25. It will be held at Oak View Community Center Theater, 4625 West 110th Street, Oak Lawn. Admission is $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased by contacting Monica Minogue at firstname.lastname@example.org or 815.954.3228.
