The Winter's Tale


The Winter's Tale

Tues/Thurs/Sat at 7:30pm
July 7 — 30, 2016

When unfounded jealousy overtakes a king, his terrible reaction wrecks everything... for a time. Director Barbara Poggemiller brings a faerie tale atmosphere to this story of loss, redemption, and a little bit of magic. And, look out for the bear!

"What's gone and what's past help
Should be past grief..."
