Beck Center Dance to Present PRINCESS SCARGO, 4/16-17
Princess Scargo is the touching story of young Native American girl who gives up a precious birthday gift in order to save her village. Based on a popular Native American legend, this enchanting adaptation embodies the true spirit of selflessness.
