East of the Sun and West of the Sun

East of the Sun and West of the Sun at Looking Glass Theatre

Based on the Scandinavian version of “Beauty and The Beast”
You know about Beauty and the Beast… but do you know about the Trolls, Hags and Winds?

To save her father and mother, a young daughter makes a promise to live with a beastly bear, whose palace is secretly filled with nasty, bumbling trolls.

In the dark of night, our heroine falls in love with a sweet shy Prince. She makes a promise never to see his face in the light and to keep their love in the dark. But when the tricky trolls convince her to sneak a peak, she breaks her promise and the trolls whisk away the newly un-enchanted Prince.
So what’s a girl to do? Save him, of course! On her amazing journey to save her true love, she encounters Hags and Horses and gets help from the Winds. Will she save her hero from the evil trolls? Can she mend her broken promise? Will they live happily ever after?
