"Delightful." —L.A. Times

"Plenty to enjoy in this engaging fable." —Ft. Worth Star Telegram

Meanwhile, the greedy king is desperate to find happiness, assuming it will come from one of the many presents he has demanded from his subjects. When the old woman refuses to give the king a quilt, she starts him on a journey of self-discovery that takes them both on a whimsical adventure. At times mystical, hilarious, gently provocative and touching, this intimate musical has delighted parents and children alike. Flexible set. Approximate Running Time: 60 minutes.
