March 6 - April 5

at the Todd Wehr Theater Directions

You've played the game.  Now read the legend of the three great warriors who started it all...

Long ago there lived three fierce warriors. From the Kingdom of Backyard came Rock, from the Empire of Mom’s Home Office came Paper, and from a messy village in the Junk Drawer Realm came Scissors.  They were the strongest, smartest, and fastest in all the land. Though they searched far and wide for worthy opponents, no one could beat them…until they met each other and a musical battle royale began to see who would come out on top!

Performance runtime is approximately 90 minutes, including intermission. Suggested for families with young people ages 4 - 10+
