By T. Rasmussen It’s time for The Illustrious Onion Skin Players spring melodrama, The Clock Runs Out for Sarabelle Tyme or was it Ask Not for Whom the Belle Strolls? Either way this years performance is sure to have the audience booing and cheering on their favorite characters.
“In this delightfully punny melodrama, the heroine is tied to the bell tower and the clock is ticking… literally. Unknown to its proprietor, clock smith Justin Tyme, the old clock shop holds a secret vault loaded with gems and jewels. But, of course, the scoundrel Fohwell Spoyler knows the truth of what’s hidden on the property.
Plotting ways to get his hands on those riches occupies his every thought, but that’s not all he has his eyes set on. He’s also after the clockmaker’s sister, the lovely Sarabelle Tyme. Alas, she only has eyes for the upstanding Sheriff Goodlah and refuses Fohwell’s advances. So what’s a villain to do? He kidnaps her and ties her to the bell tower which will soon strike the hour… and the end of Sarabelle Tyme. Meanwhile, Fohwell plans to rob the clock shop while the entire town searches for the fair Sarabelle.
Will Sarabelle be saved before it’s too late? Only time will tell!”
