This adventure story for the whole family has been brought to vibrant life with music by the Paramount’s own Jenn Hartmann Luck and a book begun by Austin playwright, Jason Tremblay before he passed away in April 2017. Theatre Heroes, one of Austin’s most exciting emergent companies, surrounds the story with innovative projected scenic elements, three exceptional Austin-based actors, live music, and features cellist, Nora Karakousoglou, playing live. Celebrated playwright Suzan Zeder has joined the creative team to help ensure that this story will live on in the hearts and minds of all who see it.
