Operating as usual

Storybook Land Theatre

Storybook Land Theatre will be back this summer. Check out their video for more details.

We're so excited to be back for 2020!

But first things first: we probably won't be able to perform in the Castle this summer.... at least not right away. Maybe by the end of the summer, but we'll take each day as it comes.

In the meantime, we are making plans to not only perform live in big, giant open spaces (like drive-in theater), but also an online option. Help us spread the word - please LIKE and SHARE. More details will be coming in the next couple of weeks.

We're as committed as ever to being able to provide you with quality family entertainment. See you soon!
