Blending science, fantasy and philosophy, Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved modern classic A Wrinkle In Time is full of surprises and charming characters. Appropriate for all ages, this play is a legendary adventure that stretches across both time and space, and challenges what is real and what we believe to be real. With only three curious old women as their guides, misfit teen Meg, her reluctant boyfriend Calvin and her wise little brother Charles Wallace must step through the veil of the universe to save their family and the Earth as we know it. With love, hope and courage, the three are on a mission that leads them from the warm embrace of monsters to the cold eyes of conformity, in a race to find Meg’s father … and themselves. Info: 970-224-5774, or
