See The Beloved Children's Story On Stage
In 2003, author Kate DiCamillo introduced the world to a brand new, pint-sized hero and his fairytale adventure, capturing the hearts and minds of millions of kids and adults in the process. Now her fantasy epic The Tale of Despereaux is leaping from the page and onto the stage during a hotly anticipated theatrical production by PigPen Theatre Co, the award-winning theatre company behind previous Old Glove smash hit The Old Man and The Old Moon.
From a young age, its clear that Despereaux Tilling isn't your average mouse. For one thing, he's not concerned with the usual mouse activities - he's more interested in reading books than nibbling at their pages and isn't driven to hunt for food... When he hears the beautiful sound of music, he follows it to the human Princess Pea's bedroom where he falls in love at first sight, an event that starts a noble quest filled with castles, dungeons and villainous rats.
