Babes in Toyland
The Dell’Arte Company’s annual holiday show returns for its 33rd year with a mad-cap adaptation of Victor Herbert’s classic family tale, BABES IN TOYLAND. Thwarted in his attempts to win the heart of Mary Contrary, the vile and exasperated Barnaby threatens to destroy all of Toyland! It falls to our unlikely heroine Jane and her friends to restore peace to the land. Jane and her kaleidoscopic crew venture into the dangerous Forgotten Forest and take us on a journey fraught with laughter and suspense! Brimming with whimsical characters, lickety-split chase scenes, enchanting music and soaring physical comedy, this beloved tale is sure to captivate and deliver loads of laughter to children of all ages. Please visit www.dellarte.com for a full tour schedule coming to a location near you! The audience is asked to contribute non-perishable food items, which the cast collects and donates to local food banks in collaboration with local non-profit, Food for People. DAI is proud to announce that admission to BABES IN TOYLAND is free for most of the performances, thanks to the generous support of Pierson Building Center, Wildberries Marketplace, Renner Petroleum, Suddenlink, ArtPlace America, The Irvine Foundation, Stephanie Joy of RE/MAX Realty and more.
