City Kids Theater brings professional theater for young audiences, and theater and arts classes for youngsters to historic Georgetown. The Story Thief and the Prince of Dreams is an exciting world premiere play written by Sean Fri, co-author of last season’s success The Princess and the Pea, and directed by Angela K. Pirko.
In this story, a group of children at a family reunion gather to hear their venerable great-grandfather spin one of his legendary bedtime stories. When he’s unable to tell even one, they begin to worry that something’s amiss.
Something is also worrying the Prince of Dreams, from his distant, slumbery realm, he notices that no children in the world are dreaming! He enlists the aid of our group of young heroes to find out where the dreams have gone, and it starts them on a trial that leads to the terrible Dream-Thief, who is bent on stealing all the bedtime stories in the world. And with them, the contented sleep of millions of children. Will the Prince of Dreams and the children be able to stop the Story-Thief in time for bed?
