Cast: 3m., 3w. This innovative show features songs and sketches as characters move through comic and serious contemporary fables celebrating childhood. Young audiences can immediately identify with these situations. The roles embody people, animals, inanimate objects, sounds, movement and magical transformations of the body and spirit. Whether whimsically looking at a childhood battle of the sexes, gently exploring the mystery of death in the touching story of a girl and her dog, or saluting the pleasures of a best friend, Magic Theatre II is a continually unfolding kaleidoscope. Bare stage.
