Princess Dulcie is so full of spiteful tricks that she has driven away all the princes. Three retired fairy godmothers arrive, eager to help. If they can sweeten up Dulcie, they will win back their wands. Prince Royal joins them. He has come to help the king but is in disguise lest he be trapped into marrying the mean princess. Exciting events follow as the godmothers try every trick in their fairy manuals.
Recommended for all ages.

Still more Lansing-area chances to see Chad Patterson’s imaginative library tour show SPACE FOR RENT! (See you at Foster on Thursday?) These are fun, original scripts by Chad — and his son is performing with him!
Major Tom "Buzz" Aldrin had to give up a career in the Air Force because he found out that he was, of all things, afraid of heights. As a boy he had once dreamed of flying not just in an airplane but maybe even one day in a spacecraft to explore the final frontier. Now he settles for a career in real estate. (When you are afraid of heights, you stay on land.) He hasn't done very well with this either, now he is desperate to at least rent a space in town. Somewhere that with a little imagination could be a great business or even a living area. He has not had any takers however except one... a young boy named Neil, who has been kicked out of his house for the day because Mom is having book club. Neil's Mom tells him to get his head out of his phone and "those games" that there is a universe of stories out there. He looks and looks and finds Major Tom and his space for rent. This excites Neil, he loves space, science fiction and everything that has to do with worlds outside of our own. He rents the space for one day and tells Major Tom that he should spend the day with him and explore "space" with him. Where Major Tom only sees a vacant storefront, Neil recreates scenes from Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy and he even revisits the first moon landing and moonwalk. Both Tom and Neil learn a lot about saying yes to your imagination. Tom learns that he can still reach great heights with his mind and Neil learns that occasionally it's nice to put the technology down and create your own story mode.

Yaaaaaay - the long awaited re-do of Matt Ottinger’s wonderful LANSING COMMUNITY THEATRE DATABASE, previously banished from the Wiki-whatever web location is now baaaaaack at lansingtheatre.org. If you haven’t explored it before — go there — “search” yourself… have fun! Settle arguments… WHO was in that show…..?
“Three things worth mentioning:
Nothing from the recent season is in yet. I'll be working on that over the summer.
I have a few major additions I plan to make to the site, which I'll be telling people about later this summer.
And finally, the only reason this got into a presentable condition is thanks to the tireless work of Joe Dickson. I can't thank him enough.”
Thanks, Matt and Joe for this theatrical asset!
