The Mantorville Theatre Company will present its summer melodrama, “A Curse Comes Home” (or “Professor Pembroke’s Predicament”) on the group’s YouTube channel starting Friday.
The show is a “jazzed-up table read” the company hopes will “leave you booing, hissing, sighing, and cheering like you were actually there!”
In the show, an archaeologist brings home a sarcophagus containing the remains of the mummified king Ramma Lamma Ding Dong, which is in turn trailing a grave-robbing thief after precious treasure. And as we know, all good sarcophagi are cursed -- placing the adventurer and his family in even more peril.
“A Curse Comes Home,” written by Greg Miller, will be available to viewers through June 28.
