Hudson – “The Book Thief,” based on the award-winning book by Markus Zusak, will be performed Friday, May 1, at 7 p.m., and Saturday, May 2, at 2 p.m., in the Intel Mini Theatre at Hudson High School (HHS), 69 Brigham St. This show is written, produced and directed by students from the Advanced Theatre Studies class at HHS.

 

The story centers around a young orphan named Liesel who arrives at the home of her new foster parents, Hans and Rosa, in 1938. When Hans learns that Liesel cannot read, he teaches the child the wonders of the written language. Liesel grows to love books, even rescuing one from a Nazi bonfire. Though Liesel’s new family barely scrape by, their situation becomes even more precarious when they secretly shelter a Jewish boy whose father once saved Hans’ life.

 

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors. All proceeds directly benefit the HHS Drama Society. This show is PG rated and recommended for all ages. Call 978-567-6250 ext. 0131 for more information.
