The Shadow Box Theatre 2019-2020 Season

Performance Dates: December 10th 2019 - January 6th 2020
"The Firefly Star" runs approximately 60 minutes.
"The Firefly Star" is a joyous show that celebrates the Hispanic holiday, Three Kings Day (El Día des Los Reyes). This multi-media musical puppet adaptation of a Hispanic Folktale will take the children on a mischievous journey.  The horses are jealous of the camels who carry the Kings.  They want the 3 Kings to ride them instead to deliver the presents to the children. Thus, an intriguing tale unfolds. The mischievous horses get their friends the sparkling fireflies to become a star.  The Firefly Star then leads the Kings and their camels back to their own castle rather than to the children, where the horses intend to convince the Kings to ride them instead. After all, they can gallop fast and bring the presents to the children on time.  However, they don't count on clever Raton the Mouse, and Signora Margarita, the Ladybug or their good friend Father Time. Together, through a clever trick and the magic of time, they save the night!
