Catch ‘Walk Two Moons’ at Kent-Meridian High

Kent-Meridian High School’s fall production “Walk Two Moons” runs Wednesday, Nov. 15 through Saturday, Nov. 18, at the K-M Performing Arts Center, 10020 SE 256th St.

The award-winning novel by Sharon Creech was adopted for the stage by Tom Arvetis.

The show starts at 7 p.m. Nov. 15-17 and at 2 p.m. on Nov. 18. Tickets are available at the door starting at 6:30 each evening and at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children.

“Walk Two Moons” is lovingly adapted for the stage with the same nuance and surprises offered by the original book. Utilizing multiple narrative frames, the play leaps back and forth through time and memory as 13-year-old Sal tells the story of the disappearance of her best friend Phoebe’s mother.

Determined to find her, the two girls begin seeing murderous plots and schemes around every corner. Sal shares these conspiracy theories with her Gram and Gramps during a cross-country road trip to confront her own mother, who left her and her father a year ago. But it is only through telling Phoebe’s story that Sal truly understands why her mother left and whether or not they’ll ever be together again.
