One of literature's most enduring young heroines, Meg Murry, is back--braces, stubbornness and all. Once again, she's joining forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O'Keefe and more to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself.

A Flint Youth Theatre production
By Barry Kornhauser

A tender, uplifting show for the little ones (and the big ones too). Sweet, inventive and packed with physical comedy, this play explores the power of friendship and shows how, with a little imagination and acceptance, companionship is everywhere.

“Balloonacy’s mix of puppetry, wordless situational comedy, and Chaplin-esque physical humor is a winning combination.” -Twin Cities Daily Planet
