WAYNE, Neb. -- Suspense, surprise, and levity loom in "The Secret in the Wings" by playwright Mary Zimmerman. Wayne State College presents the play at 7 p.m. Nov. 16-18 and at 3 p.m. Nov. 19.
All shows take place in the Black Box Theatre located in the Lied Performing Arts Annex of the Peterson Fine Arts Building. Ticket prices are $5 per person, with free admission for Wayne State College students, faculty and staff. Tickets are available at the door, with no reserved seats. Seating is limited.
"The Secret in the Wings" is a visual exploration through a dreamlike world of obscure fairy tales. The show begins with Mady’s parents leaving her with their neighbor, Mr. Bjorklund, for a night out. Mady believes Mr. Bjorklund is a monster, which her parents dismiss as childish nonsense. As the babysitter begins to read a storybook, characters come to life with one story overlapping another just at the brink of disaster.
