We are beyond thrilled to announce our next theatrical adventure will be a stage adaptation of "The Tale of Despereaux" by Kate DiCamillo.
When we first read “Despereaux”, we were enchanted by its wit and wisdom. It’s a story about the perks and pitfalls of heroism - a story that surprises its audience and reimagines the very idea of "the classic hero". It was also impossible to ignore all the stunning imagery which seemed tailor-made for our style of theatre. The book is filled with light and shadow, story and music, scale and scenery. We immediately began imagining how it might come to life on the stage: a glowing, exuberant, painterly spectacle of a musical. Since that first read we’ve continued to live under the spell of this wonderful story, and we can’t wait to share our own version of it soon. After all; the world can seem dark, but stories are light.
Thank you to all the folks at Universal Theatrical who have guided and supported us over the years it's taken to get the show ready for its first public reading.
Thank you to all the folks at The Old Globe for inviting us back into your lovely home and hosting that reading on January 14th, 2018.
Here's to spending some time together in the Kingdom of Dor.
Enjoy the holidays and stay warm.
