Adapted from Ophelia’s Shadow Theatre by Michael Ende – author of “The Neverending Story”
Ophelia is going to be a great actress who will travel the world – or at least that is what her parents want for her. When her tiny voice derails the dream, Ophelia stumbles upon a shadow that belongs to no one, and takes the solitary silhouette under her wing. When more shadows arrive, she tucks them into her little purse and soon, unlikely (and unforgettable!) friendships are forged as Ophelia and her sidekicks deliver extraordinary shadow puppet theatre in this heart-warming story full of light. Direct from The Netherlands, Miss Ophelia features two nimble performers who use lively storytelling, imaginative puppetry, and a beautiful score in this charming and award-winning show.
