WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Based on the children's books by Tomie de Paola, Strega Nona is the musical tale of a friendly magical witch (Strega Nona) who strives to cure the ills of her tiny Italian town. The baker has bunions ("As big as an onion"), his daughter wants to become an apprentice witch, and Big Anthony, a local lug, keeps sneaking unauthorized peeks at Strega Nona's magic book. When Anthony fools with the magic pasta pot, but can't figure out how to turn it off, pasta threatens to engulf the whole town -- unless Strega Nona and her young apprentice can save the day. Strega Nona was adapted for the stage by Thomas Olson with lyrics by Thomas Olson and Roberta Carlson and music and additional lyrics by Aron Accurso. The production is directed by Jacquelyn Landgraf.
