Stories on Stage brings children's literature to life in a gloriously intimate theater--the second stage at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts. A repertory company of the PYT's best teen actors presents children's fiction, fairy tales and poetry, often in adaptations written for PYT. The professionally directed shows are "black box" productions whose  no-fuss staging and 40-minute length fully engage young theatergoers' imaginations. Audiences get a chance to ask questions of the actors after every show.

Adapted by Dexter Fidler
Directed by Meg Fischer

When Frankenstein
Prepared to dine
On ham and cheese on wheat
He found instead he had no bread
(Or mustard, cheese or meat.)
                  -  Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich by Adam Rex

Take all of your favorite classic movie monsters.  Throw in some silly situations and outrageous rhymes and you've got Adam Rex's brilliant poetry books Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich and Frankenstein Takes the Cake.  We've had our own "monster mash" and put some of our favorite poems into a play that will be a perfect way for your family to get ready for Halloween.  And even better, you'll get to meet author/illustrator Adam Rex, who will be on hand at the Saturday shows to answer questions and sign books!
