Players of the Stage Perform “The Mouse that Roared”

This rare comedy uses the magic of the theatre to invite your audience to enjoy the delight of the “impossible.”

(Allentown, PA)— Thursday, December 5th, Players of the Stage will be opening their performance of Leonard Wibberley’s “The Mouse that Roared.” The show will run from Thursday, December 5th to Saturday, December 7th and Thursday, December 12th to Saturday, December 14th. Show times are 7 p.m. with additional matinee shows on Saturdays at 2 p.m. All proceeds from the performances will benefit the Allentown Rescue Mission.

“The Mouse that Roared” follows the tale of a 22-year-old girl, which happens to be the present Duchess Gloriana, sovereign of a microscopic country in the Alps founded centuries ago by a roving band of English bowmen. Gloriana’s unique solution to the near bankruptcy of her tiny domain is to declare war on the United States! There’s some method to her madness, however, for her study of recent history suggests that the surest way to wealth today is to lose a war. For that country’s odd reaction is to pour aid, relief and rehabilitation on the vanquished. Tully Bascomb, presently in charge of the bowmen, is to launch an attack so they can surrender and reap the rewards. Serious-minded Tully, however, upsets all calculations when he and his bowmen do the last thing expected. This rare comedy uses the magic of the theatre to invite your audience to enjoy the delight of the “impossible.”

Players of the Stage exists to celebrate God’s glory by developing the unique character, voice and talents of actors through staging entertaining and thought-provoking productions and to support, through its proceeds, humanitarian organizations in the Lehigh Valley.

The show runs approximately 2 hours with intermission included. Tickets free, but donations will be taken for Allentown Rescue Mission. Reserve your tickets at, on the Players of the Stage website ( or call the box office at 610-216-3195.
