Popcorn Falls by Surflight Theatre
September 27 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
Surflight Theatre is proud to announce that they will be continuing their 2023
Season with the energetic romp full of impressions, wit, and charm, Popcorn Falls. A feel good
show with laugh out loud comedic genius!!! Welcome to Popcorn Falls, a small American town
whose only claim to fame-their namesake waterfall-has dried up. Now bankrupt, their last
chance is a large grant that can only be used if the town produces a play in a week. Two big
problems: no playhouse, no play. Led by the Mayor and the local handyman, the enterprising
townsfolk try to prove that art can save the world. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story
online can make all the difference.
