WORLD PREMIERE! 1938. A small town. A mysterious carnival. And two boys bent on escaping the midway of life to find adventure, and themselves. The hypnotic power and dark poetry of Ray Bradbury's classic novel Something Wicked This Way Comes sings and seduces in this bold new musical.
With an extraordinarily magical and unique visual world, you won't want to miss this traveling carnival as it sparks to life this fall.
As the play contains dark themes and imagery which may be frightening to younger children, this show is recommended for most audiences ages 12 and up.
