On tour to schools, libraries and more…..
Follow us to a magical land, where fairies and puppets and dreamers tell the story of King Oberon, Queen Titania, Puck the Prankster and all of the mischief they can stir up in the woods one summer night. This show is appropriate for all grade levels and ages. Each performance is followed by a Talkback with the actors.
There is plenty of time to book our 37th annual touring show for your school, community center, library, or any venue! Contact Paula for more information.
