Synopsis

Set in the hills of Appalachia in the mid-1930s, this dramatization moves among various mountain settings nearby. Liza Tucker was born different. She can't talk, but she has an extraordinary ability to solve riddles. Misunderstood by her mother and her neighbors, she lives a reclusive life at the family home place. But after her father fails to return home following a flood, it is Liza who solves the mystery of his disappearance. In this heartwarming Appalachian adventure, Liza and her brother, Jacob, match wits with a pair of mischievous ghosts in a magical cave deep within mysterious Ice Mountain. At the end, Liza wins acceptance, while her mother gains a new understanding of the "kind of magic that holds a family together."

"Wonderful play and perfect for my Junior High group. We were able to stagger rehearsal times because of how easy it was to run section off actors. Perfect for this time of COVID rehearsing."
