The novel, which won both the prestigious Newberry Award and the National
Book Award, has been recreated into a stage version by its author, Louis Sacher
and makes its New Jersey premier at the Growing Stage Theatre. In the story,
Stanley Yelnauts, IV is falsely accused of stealing Clyde "Sweet Feet"
Livingston’s shoe donation to a local orphanage and will either go to jail or
"Camp Green Lake" where he will be forced to dig large holes in the
desert each day. But what the Warden is really trying to do is fired a buried
treasure that was murderer "Kissing" Kate Barlow’s fortune years
ago. When Stanley and his friend, Zero, escape, things get really bad. Told
through flashback of both Stanley’s family and the mystery of Green Lake, this
stage adaptation faithfully re-creates the suspense, humor and tragedy found in
the pages of the original work.
The Growing Stage is the only professional member theatre of the Actor’s
Equity Association in New Jersey that is solely dedicated to young people and in
2000 was named the "Outstanding Arts Organization of Morris County" by
The Arts Council of the Morris Area.
