The Borrowers staged

Posted on Monday, May 6, 2013 at 7:42 pm

The BorrowersArrietty is like any normal 14 year old yearning to experience the grown-up world. Only difference? She’s 4 inches tall and she and her tiny family lives beneath the floorboards. Find out what happens when she goes to “borrow” a few necessities and meets a human boy.

This enchanting story by author Mary Norton was the basis for the 2012 Disney movie “The Secret World of Arrietty” and  enchants readers of all ages with tales of the ingenious family of “Borrowers,” people barely six-inches high who own nothing, share freely and shamelessly borrow whatever they need from human beings. 

Directed by Janine Morgan “The Borrowers” features Charlotte Myhre as Arrietty and Keegan Miller as The Boy. The cast also includes Hannah Denninger, Suzanne Myhre, Amanda Sullivan, Harley Walker, Anna Whittemore, Hattie Fann, Mackenzie Turney, Kiley Hughes, Alena Denninger, Erilyn Denninger, Nick Emerton, Jacob Ketron, Hank Whittemore, Brennan Cox, Sims Lester, Ian Cox, Christian Denninger, and William Denninger.
