On Saturday, Little Falls Theater actors set up at The Shop on Main Street, ready to get into character for another exciting chapter with Mac Blac. Matt Powers, director of LiFT got things going by explaining what was going on to the packed house.
You see, the cast had all received mysterious messages…some by text, email, or voices left on answering machines. They’d implored Mac, his colleagues and clients to meet on the stage on Main Street.
Local writer, Angela Harris, provided yet another exciting episode for the continuing detective Mac Blac series. “Where’s the Script?”, a one-act play continuing the adventures of the only Professional Problem Solver in the Little Falls phone book.
