Behind-the-scenes doc of 'Monster Keeper' to highlight afternoon of events

The Summer Youth Theatre Institute at Western Washington University is presenting a pair of films on Sunday, Feb. 15, that came out of the institute's recent "Monster Keeper" stage performances.

At 2 p.m., there'll be a screening of "Monster Keeper: Live on Film!", and at 3:15 p.m., there'll be a screening of a behind-the-scenes documentary made of the play. A raffle will preceed the second screening. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.

The first event will be a film version of the new "Monster Keeper" stage play, adapted from the best-selling young adult novel "Demonkeeper," which was written by local author Royce Buckingham. A museum will be set up in the Performing Arts Center lobby with props, artwork and puppets from the show. Attendees will get to meet the actors, take pictures with puppets from the play and get autographs from Buckingham.

A basket full of goodies from local vendors will be raffled off.

These events are free and open to the public, and no tickets are needed.
