Imagine U presents: STELLALUNA
November 3 – 19, 2017
Hal & Martha Hyer Wallis Theater, 1949 Campus Drive

Adapted by Saskia Janse
Based on the book by Janell Cannon
Music by Guus Ponsioen
Directed by Caitlin Lowans

When a baby fruit bat named Stellaluna is separated from Mother Bat in the forest, she is adopted by a family of birds who teach her their boisterous, baby bird ways. Young audiences will delight in the music, artistic puppetry, and dance, empathizing with Stellaluna as she swoops and crashes through the forest trying to be just like her feathered friends. Nocturnal adventure awaits in this luminous adaptation from the internationally-renowned artists at Speeltheater Holland, of the beautiful picture-book classic about friendship, self-discovery, celebrating differences, and trying new things.

Recommended for ages 3 -8yrs
Running time: 55mins
