Butler Theatre: The King Stag
DIRECTED BY ELAINA ARTEMIEV
POSTER ARTWORK BY JO BIRD
A beautiful fairy tale version of Carlo Gozzi’s commedia classic: In the kingdom of Serendippo, the wizard Durandarte has planted magic. While the earnest King Deramo seeks a wife, his vile minister Tartaglia creates mayhem in service to his own ambitions. Transformation and treachery! The magician is a parrot, the king is a stag, the minister is a king and the stag is an old man. Three women hold to love and laughter to determine their proper partners, as the devoted Angela unravels the mysteries and restores the king and kingdom to their rightful states.
Masks are required to be worn by all patrons while in the venue.
