Nocturnal adventure awaits in Stellaluna, a luminous adaptation from the internationally-renowned artists at Speeltheater Holland, of the beautiful picture-book classic about a baby fruit bat. When Stellaluna is separated from Mother Bat in the forest, she is adopted by a family of birds who teach her their boisterous, baby bird ways. Young audiences will delight in the music, artistic puppetry, and dance, empathizing with Stellaluna as she swoops and crashes through the forest trying to be just like her feathered friends.

Themes of friendship, self-discovery, celebrating differences, and trying new things will entertain all ages, and flip your world upside-down.
