DUNCAN, OK (KSWO) -The Teen Theatre workshop is going on once again, and 20 students are bringing a fairy tale performed in Britain to Duncan.

Derrick Miller, a producer for Teen Theatre, explained that “The Silver Whistle” was originally written to have the audience participate, but it’s been changed slightly to remove that aspect.

“In this fairy tale, a silver whistle possessing magic powers is lost by a princess, and great adventures are had in the search for it. The whistle may be used to summon the slave of the whistle, who obeys commands, grants wishes and occasionally issues warnings or reproof,” Miller explained in an email.

The actors will continue to learn their lines, block scenes and get into costume Wednesday morning for a few hours. The costumes are coming from the Duncan Little Theatre costume shop, and Miller says they will help the teens get into character.

Out of the 20 teen actors in this year’s workshop, eight of them were also in 2015’s workshop.

The Teen Theatre provided a cast list:
Policeman: Caitlyn Ashford
Solider: Brock Freeman
Slave of the Whistle: Clay Ward
Danino, a Conjuror: Caden Spurgin
Bago: Landry Freeman
