Community musical opens at Jensen Center August 19 & 20

Inspirations Theater is proud to present an adult-and-youth production of its original musical The Princess and the Pauper, based on Mark Twain’s book, for the Amherst community at the Jensen Community Center August 19 and 20.

Follow the adventures of a poor girl from the streets and the princess of England who switch places and are stuck in their new roles. The show features local talent from the greater Amherst area, ranging from youth at the Tomorrow River Charter School, high school students at Amherst High, and adults from the community.
