The Falcon's Eye Theatre at Folsom Lake College announces its first foray into theatre for children! As a bonus production in our seventh season, we are offering Barry Kornhauser's zany, commedia dell'arte inspired confection, Recipe for Disaster.
In the kitchen of a culinary school, an eager young apprentice readies for the biggest day of his life! A world famous celebrity chef has arrived to help him pass his cooking school test and become the chef his old grandfather hoped he would be. But when the bumbling head of the school invites TWO chefs instead of ONE, a battle of egos ensues that threatens our hero's dreams. With the help of Julia the dove, the young apprentice struggles to pass his test despite the interference of the crazy cooks.
Recipe for Disaster opens on Friday, December 6 and will continue through Sunday, December 15. Below is performance time and price information:
• Fridays and Saturdays at 10:00am and 1:00pm.
