The next mainstage show is upon us–"Dakota Jones and the Search for Atlantis" is well on its way to being performed to thousands of energetic children for the annual Children's Show!
The book and music for the show were written by SAU student Aaron Randolph '12 and is being directed by SAU Alum Daniel Sheridan '05.
The main character–Dakota Jones, a precocious little girl with a passion for adventure and exploration–goes on a quest to find Atlantis with her wacky Uncle Hairbrain after learning about mythology and Atlantis from her teacher. During her adventures, Dakota encounters characters from the myths and befriends them.
Throughout her exploration, superintendent Mr. Blumblebutt–a grouchy workaholic–and his secretary, Miss Periwinkle, follow her and try to ruin her fun, but in the end they just might learn a thing or two about how to have fun.
