The Eau Claire Children’s Theatre will present LILLY’S PURPLE PLASTIC PURSE April 12-13 and 19-21 at The Oxford, 1814 Oxford Avenue, Eau Claire.

Lilly loves everything about school, especially her cool teacher, Mr. Slinger. But when Lilly brings her new purple plastic purse and its treasures to school and can’t wait until sharing time, Mr. Slinger confiscates her prized possessions. Lilly’s fury leads to revenge and then to remorse as she sets off to make amends. This stage play is based on Kevin Henkes’ popular children’s picture books “Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse,” “Chester’s Way,” and “Julius, the Baby of the World.”

Performances are scheduled for Friday, April 12 and 19, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 13 and 20, at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., and Sunday, April 21, at 1:30 p.m. Reserved seating tickets are $12 for adults/seniors and $8 for youth/students.

Theatre-goers can add to their experience by attending “Lilly’s Purple Party” on Saturday, April 13 or 20, at 10 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. Those attending are invited to dress in purple and play games with Lilly before the show. Tickets are $5.00 per person (does not include show tickets) and advance registrations are required.

LILLY’S PURPLE PLASTIC PURSE is sponsored in part by Markquart Motors and WEAU 13 News.
