Inviting visitors to dance to merry tunes with them, 32 children from throughout the county came together as the Magic Beanstalk Players and hosted their gala Renaissance Faire on July 13 at Dame Shirley Plaza in Quincy. The theater arts event was part of the local dramaworks acting program for first- through eighth-graders. “Queen” Danielle Wagner Plocki, far left, manages the West End Theatre and is a director for the program.
