Animal Farm. Adapted by Ian Wooldridge from the book by George Orwell. Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois. May 12 – 21, 2017. Milwaukee Youth Arts Center, 325 W. Walnut Street. After revolting against the reign of their negligent human master, the animals of Mr. Jones’s farm create their own ideal society in which all animals are equal and rules are set by democratic vote. It’s all working pretty well, until the allure of power leads the animals to a chilling fate. ANIMAL FARM illustrates how new tyranny replaces old and power corrupts even the noblest of causes. For families with young people ages 12 – 17 and up.
March 24-May 28, 2017 located in the Stackner Cabaret
