Players Theatre and Players Workshop
are thrilled to announce the highlight of our 2017 Season... Coraline.
The international premiere of a musical based on Neil Gaiman's classic.
Coraline Jones is your
average, ordinary girl. Or is she?
When the Jones family moves in to
their new home, Coraline stumbles upon a secret door. A door that will lead
to a fantastic adventure. An adventure that will lead all who witness it to
believe in love, magic, and the power of good over evil.
Behind this secret door lies the
Other world. And in that world lives the Other Mother. She desperately wants
Coraline to stay forever. She hungrily wants Coraline to become her little
girl. As Coraline's world slowly becomes unbuttoned, Coraline will have to
fight with all her wits and courage to save everyone and everything she has
ever known and loved.
This spellbinding production of Neil
Gaiman's award-winning masterpiece will have everyone on the edge of their
seats. Featuring standout puppetry and creative staging, this Gaiman darling
promises to be a treat. Don't miss it! Book early for the best seats!
