Encore for My Father's Dragon by Music's Recreation!
Fans of all ages can once again enjoy the triumphs of Elmer Elevator, the boy hero who outwits fierce but fickle rhinos, tigers, wild boars and crocodiles to rescue a baby dragon held captive on Wild Island.
By popular request, Music's Recreation will present a freshly staged version of the much loved children's classic written by Ruth Stiles Gannett (Ruth Kahn) of Trumansburg. With an original and lively score by Eric H. Feinstein interwoven with Marie Sirakos' graceful adaptation, it played to packed houses in 2003 and again in 2005. This performance will herald the author's 90th birthday year!
Starring two of Ithaca's most versatile actors, Joey Steinhagen and Holly Adams, with the Music's Recreation Micro-philharmonic conducted by Ubaldo Valli, production directed by Marie Sirakos.
Read the book and then come to the beautiful performance space atop the Community School of Music and Arts building on Sunday April 7 at either 2pm or 4 pm. The author will sign books-- bring yours or buy one at the performance.
Tickets at the door, $8, or $22 for a family pass.
Yes, it's My Father's Dragon!!!
