Michael Ende’s epic adventure The Neverending Story comes to life at YPT
“Surviving ordeals in pursuit of a goal, a boy becomes a man … it’s a gripping adventure, full of weird and wondrous creatures….“ ~ Seattle Post Intelligencer
Young People’s Theatre (YPT) is proud to present David S. Craig’s stage adaptation of The Neverending Story, a thrilling, epic adventure in the spirit of The Lord of the Rings, based on Michael Ende's classic German novel. Produced by Roseneath Theatre, this magical exploration of character and creativity will be presented on the Mainstage from February 27 to March 17, 2012, with extra performances added during March Break week.
Bastian is a bullied boy who escapes his troubles by burying himself in books. His latest – impulsively stolen from an old bookshop – draws him into the most thrilling adventure of his life. Fantastica, the land of stories, is facing oblivion from an enemy known only as The Nothing. The Childlike Empress has chosen an unlikely hero, a boy of Bastian’s age named Atreyu, to shoulder the daunting task of saving their world. As the adventure unfolds, Bastian discovers that he needs to find the key that will change both their worlds.
