Please Touch Museum will boldly glow where it has never gone before with the debut of this illuminating new theater show!
Fly/Fishing, a Black Light Show presented by PECO, is a fantastic tale of a little girl who genuinely learns the old adage 'there is no place like home.' On stage October 10 through December 6, 2009, "Fly/Fishing" will be the first Please Touch Playhouse show to utilize black light as a major storytelling element!
The show incorporates elements of fantasy, props and puppets to take the audience on a journey to the most interesting of places. The audience follows Quinshaya, a four-year-old girl, who goes on a quest to find her lost plush bunny rabbit. Through the magic of black light, she travels from the bottom of the sea to the tops of the clouds, flies with the whales and swims with the birds, until she lands in the most surprising place of all. It is a tale of loyalty, friendship and having a never-give-up attitude.
Showtimes are Monday-Saturday 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.; Sunday 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The show is FREE with museum admission. Please check our online calendar for the most up-to-date listings.
