World Premiere

An original musical adaptation based on the European folktale.

The classic folktale of the feared strangers who inspire a whole community through the use of one little stone charms its way onto the main stage this spring in a world premiere musical. When war-weary foreigners arrive in the village square, fear and suspicion reign. But as the outsiders start to make soup out of a stone, each of the locals is prompted to contribute to the ever-growing, communal meal. Come share this ageless story with us as it serves up a delightfully poignant reminder that community is built one ingredient at a time.

Target age range: recommended for all ages
