Kicking off the 2017 Forest Theater Guild season and reviving on a long standing Guild tradition of presenting new and original works, we welcome the world premiere of PIRATE BOOTY…an original play written and directed by Carmels own Todd Weaver. This rollicking pirate comedy is a sure fire hit for the whole family, with pirates and mermaids and laughs galore!
The Forest Theater Guild is extremely pleased to welcome back legendary local director and producer Walt deFaria for “BIG, The Musical” based on the Tom Hanks movie of the same name.
Josh Baskin is sick of being an awkward kid. At a carnival, he makes a wish to the Zoltar machine to become “big”. To his shock, his wish is granted. After an understandably awkward beginning, Josh is forced to do “adult” things, like getting a job and a girlfriend. In the end, he discovers that there’s much more to being an adult than he’s bargained for and he learns that we must all grow up at our own pace and in our own time.
