Competitive Annie is determined to win this year’s Annual Island Scavenger Hunt with her best friend, Kim.  But her plans go awry when she has to host her city-slicker cousin Devon.  What’s worse, her younger brother Stevie and his faithful dog Rooster also want to tag along.  And who’s that salty old guy Devon keeps running into all over town?

When presented with a puzzling disappearance, how will Annie and her friends solve the mystery and save the day?

Misadventure at the Lighthouse puts YOU in the writer’s chair – Read the story created by professional playwrights Michele Riml and Michael St. John Smith, follow the clues, and then decide how the characters will crack the case!

Work solo or team up with your friends and family to solve the mystery and even create artwork based on the story.

Green Thumb Theatre is proud to partner with BC Library Association and BC Summer Reading Club to create a NEW play for young audiences, Misadventure at the Lighthouse, that incorporates this year's BCSRC theme: MYSTERY. We're excited that young people across the province will be able to let their imaginations run wild and explore theatre through reading, writing, and visual arts!

Participation is free and open to everyone. Visit bcsrc.ca for all the details and to read MISADVENTURE AT THE LIGHTHOUSE! Registration begins June 14 and the program starts June 28!

Details also available at your local library!

Story endings and artwork can be submitted at bcsrc.ca until July 26. A few submissions will be featured at a live online play-reading event with professional actors on August 18 at 2PM!

Due to time constraints we will not be able to share all work submitted, but thank everyone who chooses to participate!
