Description: A long time ago, in a distant land far from here, lived a Tsar named Vyslav. After catching glimpses of a magical creature whose feathers light up the sky, Vyslav sends his three sons on a quest to find this bird, offering half his kingdom as a reward. His youngest son Ivan ventures off alone until he meets Marina, the warrior maiden, and her talking wolf sidekick. Together they face rivers of fire, evil witches and wizards, and epic battle scenes to retrieve The Firebird. Adapted for the stage and with special permission by Ian Bivins.

This production is great for students who love acting and creating a show as a team, without the singing and dancing parts of musical theatre. Students will learn acting theory and practice their skills through rehearsing and performing a full-length play. This course is a great introduction for a beginning actor, and will also help the seasoned performer develop their craft further!
