School Series: Wilde Creatures, 12PM

January 17, 2020, 12:00 PM
Alice Jepson Theatre, Modlin Center for the Arts

Wilde Creatures takes students on a fantastic journey through palaces, forests, and beyond as a motley crew of storytelling musicians bring Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy tales to life. Characters from The Happy Prince and other stories spring to life as the pompous mayor, the petulant princess, and the love-sick student all compete to become the new town statue. “The Wilde Creatures are a raggle-taggle band of storytelling actor-musicians who bring the characters to vivid life... This thoughtful show, enlivened by jaunty music and lyrics, has a brain as well as a heart” (The Guardian).

Based in London, England, Tall Stories has become internationally recognized for its exciting blend of storytelling theater, original music, and lots of laughs. The company’s unique brand of physical storytelling theater has toured from Cornwall to Aberdeen and from New York to Sydney.
