About the new play: Everyone loves a good crop circle – that is, everyone but world renowned peanut planter Farmer Carter. This fine farmer is devastated to learn his entire year’s yield of peanuts has been damaged by someone – or something – just a day before the circus comes to town! Farmer Carter hires a detective to investigate, and is taken on a wild goose chase throughout the city, running into a time travelling clown, a wacky scientist, and many, many more – all in the style of film noir!

Hillcrest Players gives young people an opportunity to flex their artistic muscles in a less demanding arena than a full-length production.   The one-act plays provide young performers with a positive experience to increase self-esteem, self-awareness and self-discipline.
