Category: Kids & family and Theatre

The play will be performed Fridays at 7 PM; Saturdays at 1 PM and 5 PM; and Sundays at 3 PM.

Knoxville Children’s Theatre will present a live production of “HOLES” based on the 1998 award-winning novel by Louis Sachar, and the 2003 adventure comedy film produced by Walden Media and Walt Disney Pictures.

Tickets will be limited to 60 attendees for each performance and groups/families will be distanced from each other. Masks will be required for entry.

The play focuses on Stanley Yelnats, a troubled kid who is sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake. The warden tells the boys that they must dig holes five feet wide by five feet deep in order to “build character.” But Stanley soon realizes that this isn’t the real reason they’re being subjected to such treatment. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something, and Stanley will do his best to dig up the truth.

The show is directed by Artistic Director Dennis E. Perkins.
