‘Empowered’ tickets on sale: Marshall Mustang Theatre presents “Empowered: How One Girl Scout Nearly Destroyed the World’s Economy.”

Amaryllis is determined to win her Girl Scout troop’s cookie-selling contest, but she’ll need more than charm to win first prize (a unicorn) and avoid last place (which means getting kicked out of the troop). So, when sales droop, she naturally turns to the financial sector for advice. Soon, she’s faking a terminal illness, franchising her methods and contracting with a payday lender to offer 30-year loans for cookies. This is a hysterical homage to Glengarry Glen Ross and a send-up of the wild excesses of the financial crisis.

Shows run April 24-27 at 6 p.m. each night in the school’s theater. Tickets are available online at
