COLDWATER – Tibbits’ Popcorn Theatre continues with the spook-tacular story of Shiver and Shake showing July 27-28 & August 3-4 at 10am.
A young man who has never felt fear wonders what it’s like to shiver and shake. He spends the night in a haunted castle, and comedy abounds as ghost after ghost try to frighten him. This exciting story was written for the stage by the Brothers Grimm based upon the original story by E.B. White. Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were 19th century German authors who are most well-known for publishing Grimms' Fairy Tales, a collection of famous stories which include Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood.
Making up the cast of Shiver and Shake is Max Gonzales as Jack, Naomi Blansit as Princess Adelina, Emma Driver as Bridget the Banshee, David Ossman as Peter the Poltergiest, and Kendra Bonjernoor as Willa the White Lady. Trinity Bird takes the helm as the director of this show, with design staff featuring set design by Leon Kriser II and Trevor J. Powell, costume design by Marie Green, props design by Trevor Powell, lighting design by Alyssa Kraft, and sound design by Kat Brown.
Tibbits Popcorn Theatre is ideal summer entertainment for the entire family and a great way to introduce kids to live theatre that is created just for them and performed by professionals. After each performance the audience will have the opportunity to meet the actors and get autographs.
