Description: Set in Revolutionary War America, two lost soldiers stumble upon the "perfect" village while searching for food and shelter. Unfortunately, the villagers are not so willing to share with these weary men until the soldiers begin to make their favorite meal - Stone Soup. This classic fable, told with mirth and music, makes us realize that anything is possible if we all work together. The audience is asked to bring canned goods to place in a soup pot that will be given to local soup kitchens. In the interactive arts workshops prior to the performance, the audience learns how the story was turned into a musical and discusses the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to life. Kids and families will also make a special art project and take it home as a souvenir.
