Local children featured in play
Two Newburyport residents will appear in Pingree School’s “The Yellow Boat” this weekend.
Dylan Wack plays Benjamin and Hannah Wilson plays a “transformational character” in the production, which is based on the true story of Benjamin Saar, a young artist who died at age 8 from a terminal illness in 1987.
Pingree’s adaptation will feature live music written and performed by Amherst band Kids Choice, an a cappella performance by school group Spectrum, and a community visual art piece.
Show times are tomorrow and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. A $10 donation is requested at the door.
Pingree is located at 537 Highland St., Hamilton. For more information, call 978-468-4415.
