Summer Reading Program Finale August 9th

Aladdin-2-WMJoin us for our Summer Reading Program Finale Tuesday August 9th at 6:30PM. We are pleased to have Hampstead Stage Company return again this year, this time with a performance of Aladdin!

From their website:This classic tale is an exotic adventure based on The Tales of the Arabian Nights. It is about a poor young boy, Aladdin, who must go out and earn money for his family’s survival. While traveling throughout the country selling his wares, he is fooled by an evil magician, Salabin, who convinces him to find an antique oil lamp. Aladdin rubs the old lamp and releases a Genie that can make all his wishes come true. Now Aladdin must outsmart the magician and save his family! Through this play, we hope to encourage the students to rise above the odds and to follow their dreams.”

Sign-up is required for this great show. *Parents, please remember, only children aged 8+ may be left in the library without supervision.

This program has been generously sponsored by The Friends of the Rye Public Library.
