This year’s performance, “The STONE in the ROAD” will be directed by Clara Stark.

Show synopsis:

A wise queen puts her subjects to the test. Who will move the large boulder from the road?  Anyone kind enough to move the stone will be handsomely rewarded with a job as royal counselor to the queen!  A host of wacky characters pass through as the queen and her faithful servants watch from a hiding place to see who will be unselfish. Many wacky travelers show up along the way, yet it seems that no one will pass the queen’s test! Join the Queen, her loyal court, and various others as they come to see how actions, not complaints, often get a job done. With this fun and snappy bunch of characters this well-known fairy-tale entertains children of all ages, while teaching the importance of helping others.
