Hope to offer ‘Hot Fudge Pickles’

The town of Hope’s newly formed Actors Studio will be hosting a play based on the children’s book “Hot Fudge Pickles.”

The author, Marilyn Anderson, of Bedford said that this is only the second time her book has been turned into a play. And she will be on hand to play the piano during the performance.

Anderson says that the book, her most successful to date, features Alvin, a troublemaking child:

Children from Hope Elemenatry School’s fourth, fifth and sixth grades will be performing in the play, along with adults.

The first performance is Saturday at Willow Leaves of Hope on the north side of the Hope Town Square starting at 6 p.m. and a Sunday performance at 1 p.m.
