This modern fairy tale weaves together a mischievous wizard, a bear turned into a man, a cross-dressing princess, and an hysterical tyrant king in a new play about the terrifying transformative power of love. Inspired by a beloved Russian folk story, award-winning playwright Constance Congdon transfers the action to a small town in northern Minnesota, while composer Johanna Gorman-Baer conjures an original backwoods musical score performed live. A collaboration with Theatre Nov Most, this production is part of the Department of Theatre Arts & Dance‘s Re-imaginging Community Arts Partnership (Ri-CAP) program. Runs April 11-21.
