an original play by Creative Arts Theatre inspired by the classic folktale
January 23 - March 1, 2019
In the village of Cadence, all of the citizens move to the beat of the same drum, and everyone seems content just the way things are. One day, a stranger arrives asking for help and throws their daily dance into chaos! The outsider brings a new rhythm and way of thinking with her. Will the town accept her or throw her out? Will they help her to make an intriguing soup? Will they learn anything about what makes each one of them special? This classic folk tale gets fresh take in this original script by Creative Arts Theatre. The show is best for ages 4 and up.
