Small World

March 27 @ 7:30 pm - May 4 @ 7:30 pm

World Premiere of SMALL WORLD, By Jillian Leff and Joe Lino and Directed by Andrew Hobgood. It’s the end of the world…maybe? There’s no way to confirm for three cast members trapped inside their attraction at the happiest place on earth. The music won’t stop, there’s a body in the moat and one of the group is impaled under a smiling animatronic. Can they force their way off the ride? And what waits for them on the other side? It’s a world of hopes, it’s a world of fears. It’s a small world, after all.
