The Children’s Theatre Series concludes with The Imaginators Dec. 2-4.

“I picked the show because it’s such a great piece about the importance of imagination and having fun,” McGee said.

Uncertain and nervous after moving to a new town, Anne and Tim are reassured with the help of a new friend who leads them on an intrepid imaginary battle with the fierce child-eating monster, the Mooklecratz. The children discover their own strengths, the value of cooperation, and the unlimited power of their imaginations.

The Imaginators plays at The Lab Theatre of Gordon Wilson Hall on Friday-Sunday (Dec. 2-4).  Show times are 4 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. All tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door, online at wku.showare.com or by calling the Fine Arts Box Office at (270) 745-3121.

Cast members include Sydney Rae Davis, a senior from Elizabethtown; Danny Zeidan, a freshman from White House, Tennessee; Conner Keef, a sophomore from Maysville; and Ivy Sauder, a sophomore from Louisville.

The children’s theatre program, headed by instructor Carol Jordan, presents an active schedule each fall, including performing in numerous southcentral Kentucky elementary schools and libraries.
