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. Dell'Arte International is delighted to infuse the 2013 holiday season with their one-of-a kind comedy and energetic physical performance style. 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. 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 opens the 2013 BABES IN TOYLAND tour with two free performances at the Carlo Theatre in Blue Lake, November 29 – 30, 2013.
