A world premiere!
Adapted from the story by George MacDonald
Book and Lyrics by Tony Lawton

A new musical takes flight. Based on a Scottish legend by George MacDonald, this play tells the story of a teenager who has no gravity of any kind – in addition to having no feelings for others she floats in the air, unable to ever touch the ground.  Filled with wonderful characters and a beguiling score, this enchanting, clever and wickedly funny new musical will delight kids and parents alike.

Most enjoyed by families with children ages 6 and older.

Alex Bechtel (Prince/Witch)
