Tent Show to Celebrate 125th Birthday

A Writer's MInd

A Writer's Mind

Rider Wright has to write a short story for school, or he'll fail out and have to get a job. His buddy, Julius, comes by to help, but he doesn't have any ideas... and there are so many distractions! Screaming kids, annoying cartoons, video games that have to be played, not to mention the endless TikToks! Things get so bad, they even turn to AI for help, but is that really the help they need? Will Rider write his own story, or will the AI take over?

This inventive tale was written by two of our Young Rivertime Players, Houston Starrett and Jacob King.
