Grand Rapids Civic Theatre’s production of HOLES opens this weekend!
The Yelnats suffer from a family curse and fourteen-year-old Stanley Yelnats is feeling the pain. Convicted for a crime he didn’t commit, Stanley is sentenced to Camp Green Lake, where nothing is green and no lake is in sight. The Warden has the camp boys spending their days digging holes under the brutally hot desert sun supposedly to build character but soon we learn there may be another reason the warden has them digging holes. Stanley will discover, and perhaps put an end to the family curse. Recommended for age 8 and up audiences.
