    “A Week in the Life of Carrotville”  is an original comedy set in the town of Carrotville.  The Carrotvillians are a wealthy family of four; Mom,Dad, Maxine, and Ava.   Maxine and Ava live in a special house next door, because Mom and Dad do not want them interrupting important meetings or damaging pristine furniture.  The kids are always on camera and everything is fine and normal, and everyone feels completely safe,  until one Maxine is visiting the pantry to retrieve some snacks, she is suddenly kidnapped by the evil banana pudding king, Eepee Eepee!  Ava and her best friend Lila discover a note left by Eepee Eepee that demands a ransom for the return of Maxine.   And so begins a week in the life of Carrotville!

   What did the ransom note say?  Is Lila really Ava's best friend?  Who is Professor Weirdo and why was he banned from the Carrotvillian's household?  Is he a good guy or is he a bad guy?   Will Alex from the coffee shop be able to provide enough banana pudding cakes to satisfy the criminals.  Can Gerald Bob and Billy Bob from the ClubScout Clubhouse help save Maxine from the kidnappers?

    Answers await in the African Community Theatre, Oscar Richie Hall, Kent State University. “A Week in the Life of Carrotville”, opening Friday, May 19, 7:30pm.


The New World Children’s Theater began as The New World Puppet Theater at the North Water Street Gallery in Kent, Ohio, in January of 1993. Originally, it was comprised of home-school children. Throughout the years , however, it has grown to include public-schooled children as well. Eventually, the troupe outgrew the puppets and the ensemble became The New World Children’s Theater, which has produced 37 plays since 1994. In addition to the emphasis on original playwriting, the company is dedicated to using recycled materials in the construction of its sets and props. This fosters an understanding ofa sustainable planet as well as an understanding of how to work with limited resources. The only requirement is a creative mind.

The New World Children’s Theatre is always looking for donations to support students from low income families as well as our ongoing activities. Donations are tax deductible and can be made to Standing RockCultural Arts, 300 N. Water St., Suite H., Kent, Ohio 44240.

Thank you for supporting the kids.
