Magical Fairy Tale STREGA NONA Will Come to Life on The Berman's Stage

Strega Nona is a timeless story that satisfies the appetite for laughter and fun. Based on the original children's book written and illustrated by Tomie dePaola, Strega Nona ("Grandma Witch") has a magical pasta pot, which only she can control. Silliness ensues when her helper, Big Anthony, does not listen to her and he causes Nona's magic pot to create so much pasta that it nearly buries their small Italian village. Strega Nona, brought to life by Ann Arbor's award-winning Wild Swan Theater, fills The Berman's stage at 1 p.m. Sunday, January 21, 2018.

A Caldecott winner, regarded as one of the "Top 100 Picture Books" of all time by School Library Journal, Strega Nona is performed by the much-beloved Wild Swan Theater Company. Also not to be missed are the sets, costumes and props, which are designed by nationally renowned artist Chris Roberts-Antieau.

Strega Nona is perfect for children ages 3-8 because of the Wild Swan Theater Company's dedication to providing engaging and enriching live theater experiences for children of all ages and their families.
