THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE Travels to Musical Theatre of Anthem
Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces their upcoming production of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, a Dwayne Hartford adaptation based on the Newberry-winning novel by author Katie DiCamillo. Follow the heartwarming journey of Edward, a china rabbit given to ten-year-old Abilene by her grandmother in the 1930s, when an unfortunate incident suddenly shatters his pleasant but vain life and sends him overboard the RMS Queen Mary. From the ocean floor to a fisherman's boat, Edward is passed from hand to hand of a succession of life-altering characters, taking him far from home and even farther from the selfish rabbit he once was. "If you have -no intention of loving or being loved, then the whole journey is pointless."
Award-winning director, Laura O'Meara, and the talented cast of award winners and nominees ages 11- adult present the show November 30 - December 3 in Anthem.
Performances take place Thursday - Sunday at Musical Theatre of Anthem, 42323 N. Vision Way, Anthem, AZ 85086. Times vary, see website for details. Tickets may be purchased online at musicaltheatreofanthem.org. Adult tickets are $19; Students, Seniors and Children 12 and under are $16.
