The story follows the adventures of Meg, Charles Wallace and their friend Calvin as they battle The Man With The Red Eyes to bring their father home safely from a planet far, far away — with the delightfully well-intentioned help of Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Which and Mrs. Who!
“We’re scooting it into our schedule for September, replacing a previous plan to stage Stephen Sondheim’s ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ — which we’ll find a place for during a future season,” said Artistic Director Randy Lake.
“This new version was commissioned by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 2015, and — because of the magical universe it portrays — Great Escape is delighted to present it in conjunction with events planned in Marshall surrounding the release of the film of John Bellairs’ ‘The House with a Clock in its Walls’,” Lake said.
“The recent Disney movie of ‘A Wrinkle in Time’ opened up the story with special effects and Hollywood star casting, but the stage version hews closer to the original award-winning book,” Lake said.
