Last night we were excited to attend a production of Night At The Wax Museum at The Empress Theatre. We saw this on the 2013 schedule last December when we went to see The Christmas Box, and have been looking forward to seeing it ever since. We were not disappointed! A huge thanks to The Empress Theatre for inviting us back to review another fantastic show!
The story is about a group of kids who fail history class, and to make up for it, they have to work at a museum over the summer. They are less than excited about doing so, and have no idea what’s in store for them at the museum.
After reading an inscription on Cleopatra’s bracelet, the wax figures are brought to life and cause chaos throughout the museum for all those involved. Historical figures on the hunt for a secret treasure, a rekindled high school flame, greedy landlords and a group of ladies determined to bring interest to history are just some of the events that unfold during Night At The Wax Museum.
Families of all ages will enjoy this production, and walk away with peaked interest in learning about history and the characters that shaped the world we know today.
“The show is to be enjoyed by all ages,” Brown said. “So please, take your adult hats off and put back on your child hats. Let yourself go, and get caught up in the silliness.”
Night At The Wax Museum is the first full length play directed by Michele Brown. It was written last year by Craig Sodaro, writer of over 150 plays. Unlike many other shows at The Empress, Night At The Wax Museum is not a musical.
My son, of course, loved the pirates. Blackbeard, played by Marcus Rood, was loud and commanding; exactly as we imagine Blackbeard himself was in his prime pirating days. Rood also played a pirate at The Empress Theatre in Pirates Of Penzance in 2007.
