About This Show

Soft-spoken Ophelia is rather ordinary, but one day, she experiences something quite extraordinary. In this charming stage adaptation of Ophelia’s Shadow Theatre by Michael Ende (The Neverending Story), two talented and nimble performers use lively storytelling, imaginative homespun puppetry and a sentimental score to dramatize this heartwarming tale. When Ophelia stumbles upon a shadow that “belongs to no one,” she takes the solitary silhouette under her wing. When more shadows arrive, she tucks them into her tiny purse. Soon, unforgettable friendships are forged as Ophelia and her sidekicks share a poignant journey that delights long after the lights dim.

Appropriate for ages 6 and up.
