Spring Children's Theater Schedule



April 9th - April 24th

Patience says she can change 'flax' into 'gold.'  Unfortunately, the King, whose gold has been mysteriously disappearing, hears this and mistakes it for an actual boast.  He orders Patience to work the change, or she will lose her head, despite the Prince's protests who's in love with her.  She's shut in the tower to perform her task, and Rumplestiltskin, the gnome, offers to help her - at a price.  The play then follows the gnomes's defeat by the guessing of his secret name and, despite other complications from the wicked Baron and his henchmen, all ends happily.

Reservations are highly suggested and can be made by calling the Box Office at (516) 293 - 0674.  Call ahead to be sure that the shows are taking place as scheduled.
