Sat 9/15-Sun 10/7
For its next show, Talespinner Children’s Theatre, which travels around the world seeking myths, folktales and legends upon which to base its plays, goes indigenous.
The Boy Who Stole the Sun (and Other Native American Stories), produced in partnership with the Lake Erie Native American Council, tells creation stories from Inuit, Pueblo and Ojibwe traditions, seen through the eyes of a child. The show was created and directed by TCT founder/director Alison Garrigan, and as usual, it incorporates music, dance, storytelling and visuals including costumes, puppetry and masks.
It runs Fridays and Saturdays @ 7pm and Saturdays and Sundays @ 2pm, through Sun 10/7. Tickets are $15 for 13 and over, $10 for 12 and younger, and $12 for seniors — yes, this is children’s theater that is engaging for all ages. There are also pay-what-you-can performances; check the website
