A man arrives in a strange town only to find that everyone knows his name, but thinks he’s someone else. Confusion mounts as everyone uncouples from themselves. Will they ever find themselves again? Do they really want to? The Comedy of Errors, a fairytale farce of everyday.
A magician conjures an elephant from the sky, setting off a chain of events so remarkable, so impossible, that it changes life in this quiet and lonely town forever. This brand-new musical for all the family reminds us all that even the impossible can be possible when we open our eyes and hearts to those around us..
