Elfwyn's Saga

Inspired by Viking lore, Elfwyn’s Saga presents an enthralling tale of magic, greed, and heroism. During the early settlement of Iceland, a girl named Elfwyn is born blind after a curse is placed on her family. Guided and protected by the mysterious Hidden Folk, she learns to rely on other senses to perceive the world around her. When a rival Viking clan uses a treacherous magic crystal to sow the seeds of discord among her family, Elfwyn’s gift of clear perception is all that stands between her community and its self-annihilation. An imaginative musical score and hundreds of dazzling costumes help the young dancers of the Children’s Dance Theatre bring this spectacular story to the stage. The show lasts about an hour.

The Classical Greek Theatre Festival Presents Ion By Euripides

Infidelity, betrayal, and a chase to the death. At the end of her child-bearing years, the Athenian Creusa seeks an answer as to why she is unable to bear children with her husband Xuthus. In her quest for answers, she finds herself at the temple of Apollo where she meets and converses with a stranger. What she discovers about this stranger will change the rest of her life.
