At The Actors Gymnasium in Evanston
Can our hero make it to the last level with one life and no powerups? After an escape from her mother’s restrictive courtly rules, Princess Deidre runs to the woods and befriends young Irving- a half human/half fairy boy. Big Mistake. Little did Deidre know, Irving’s mom is the wicked Morrigan, and she hates humans. Now it’s up to Deidre to save her friend from his castle prison while navigating the chaotic Land of Bit.
The incredibly talented Actors Gym Youth Circus Ensemble is at it again– this time with an original fantasy/video game mashup! Goblins and Powerups, Witches and Warp tubes- whether you’re a next-gen console kid or came up in the 8-bit days, you’ll be amazed by the awesome physical feats of these young performers as they weave a tale of friendship strong enough to conquer the wickedest wild magic.
