A bit of nostalgia for ‘older kids,’ the children’s play Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse plays through Saturday, Sept. 28, at Shamblin.
Lipscomb’s School of Fine and Performing Arts is presenting the show, based on the children’s books by Kevin Henkes.
The tale features a mouse named Lilly who loves everything about school.
Pals Chester and Wilson say they are two peas in a pod, but Lilly soon comes to town and eventually becomes best friends with both of them.
“It’s really good for ages 5-10,” said Emma Harvey, who plays Chester, when talking about the play.
“Adults love it too, though,” she said.
“There are some really specific parts of the show that are geared towards adults, and that children just won’t get. For college students, it’s really nostalgic because we grew up reading the books.”
Tickets for can be purchased here for the remaining shows at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, and at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, in Shamblin Theatre.
Harvey encourages her college schoolmates to catch it before it’s gone. “You should definitely come see this show for a little bit of nostalgia and fun.”
