Set in the Revolutionary War America, two lost soldiers stumble upon the “perfect” village while searching for food and shelter. Unfortunately, the villagers are not so willing to share with these weary men until the soldiers begin to make their favorite meal – Stone Soup.
This classic fable, told with mirth and music, makes us realize that anything is possible if we all work together. To further the message of community, the audience is asked to bring canned goods to place in our soup pot which will be given to a local soup kitchen. Recommended for ages 3 to 103!

The Pre-show Workshop
In addition to the one hour musical, the audience receives a special treat – interactive arts workshop prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how we turned it into a musical. We discuss the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to life. Then the kids and their families make a special art project and take it home as a souvenir. Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms and themes represented in the production.
The whole program (pre-show workshop and actual show) is approximately 2 hours long.
