    Turner Buckminster III can’t win: he’s the new kid in town, he plays baseball differently, and he stumbles upon trouble at every step. Turner’s only friend is Lizzie Bright Griffin from Malaga Island, an impoverished community founded by former slaves. The town (and Turner’s father) disapproves of their friendship, but Turner and Lizzie remain friends regardless. When powerful forces threaten Lizzie and her kin, Turner faces the ultimate test of his character—and learns a hard-earned lesson about courage and loss.

    “[Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy] is a production that may stand in memory like a lighthouse on a stark cliff, flashing brilliance through a dark night." -Pioneer Press

    "It’s great to see the Children’s Theatre take on relevant topics such as racism with younger audiences, and the result is a charming, heartfelt production that doesn’t shy away from the harder, more painful aspects of this time in history." ~ Twin Cities Metro
