Trouble on the Double by Holly Hepp-Galván and presented by Pollyanna Theatre, Central Texas’ most well-known children’s theatre company, will show at the Rollins Studio Theatre at the Long Center for the Performing Arts from July 9-17, 2016.
Best suited for kids ages 4-10 years old, Trouble on the Double follows the story of young twins who may look alike but have very different personalities. While one is brave and not afraid to try anything, the other is timid and does not like to take any risks. Can these siblings learn to balance each other out? How much adventure is fun and how much is dangerous? Hepp-Galvan’s newest play for Pollyanna will have audiences both thinking and laughing as the action unfolds. This production is sure to be a perfect summertime trip to the theatre for both summer campers and families.
Trouble on the Double is set in a larger than life world in which children can climb and jump vast distances, extremely large animals wave ten-foot-long tails, and shadows come to life. Set designers Holly and Patrick Crowley will construct the world, and projection designer and puppeteer Sara Farr will create the digital puppets and work with the performers to form the shadow puppets.
