Ziggurat Theater Ensemble presents a fantastic outdoor performance in the Maine desert
Ziggurat Theater Ensemble, in association with the Desert of Maine Center for Arts and Ecology, will perform the enchantingly fantastical “Caravan of Dreams” outdoors in the Maine desert beginning Saturday, June 4 and ending Sunday, June 26.
“Caravan of Dreams” is a world premiere fantasy about a girl who must save her town from mysterious dark forces. Music, comedy, dance and a large puppet conjure up a magical world where imagination becomes reality, and nothing is as it seems.
“We are thrilled to create this site-specific spectacle for the unique and beautiful landscape of the Maine desert,” said writer-director Stephen Legawiec. “Having a show in this vast and magical space will be a treat for us and the audience.”
The Maine-based cast includes Marguerite Benham, Jake Cote, Andrew Elijah Edwards, Clay Hawks, Savannah Irish, Colleen Katana, Dashiell Legawiec, Lyra Legawiec, Laura MacLean, Seth Rigoletti, Wilder Short, Caleb Streadwick and Elise Voigt . They are joined by guest artist Mel Angelo. The show is written and directed by Stephen Legawiec. The director of the movement is Dana Legawiec. The costumes are by Anne Collins. The puppet maker is Emilia McGrath.
“Caravan of Dreams” premieres outdoors in the Maine desert at 6 p.m. on June 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, and 26.
This is an outdoor show only. Please check the website, ZigguratTheatre.org, if rain is forecast.
