SHOW SUMMARY

Meg Murry and her little brother, Charles Wallace, have been without their scientist father, Mr. Murry, for five years, ever since he discovered a new planet and used the concept known as a tesseract to travel there. Joined by Meg's classmate Calvin O'Keefe and guided by the three mysterious astral travelers known as Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, the children brave a dangerous journey to a planet that possesses all of the evil in the universe.

 

A highly condensed, quite impactful epic, "A Wrinkle in Time" is not only an amazing kid-empowering work, but largely attractive to young adults alike. School Library Journal has called it “ a suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment.”

ABOUT THE CREATOR 

Madeleine_lengle.jpeg
MADELINE L'ENGLE

Madeleine L’Engle (pronounced LENG-el) was born Madeleine L’Engle Camp on November 29, 1918, in New York City. Her parents were artists themselves: her mother, Madeleine “Mado” Hall Barnett, was a pianist; and her father, Charles Wadsworth Camp, was a writer (known for mystery stories) and journalist. A Wrinkle in Time represented Madeleine’s first time creating a work of science fiction and fantasy (SFF) or science fantasy. Science fiction typically uses an imagined reality that expands from our everyday world to include extraordinary possibilities mixed with real or imagined sciences. Madeleine believed that “science fantasy is not far from fairy tale, that world which delves deep into the human psyche, struggling to find out at least a little more of what we are all about.”

DIRECTOR'S NOTES

FROM THE DIRECTOR
 

The story of Cinderella is 100s of years old. The first time it was put to paper was in 1634. There are so many versions of Cinderella, novels, Fairy Tales, films, children’s storybooks, plays, musicals AND it has been shared in every language. I happen to think our version is pretty special.


In this story Ella pursues her own destiny, shattering traditional standards and in turn aims to write her own future. And unlike other versions of this story, she does it all with the added challenge of constant obedience, a “gift” from her Fairy Godmother. Add a wicked Stepmother, 2 self serving Stepsisters, some Ogres and a Fairy Godmother who is of little help, and you have got yourself a real adventure. She never gives up despite it all, a true heroine in my books.
 

The Team, cast, and crew, have worked tirelessly to create this show just for you. They are indeed nothing short of extraordinary. Every challenge was met with positivity and support, we wanted this to be a show your entire family will enjoy.
 

We welcome you all to the Kingdom of Frell, we are grateful you could join us. Now lose yourself in this remarkably magical and courage driven adventure.
