TO ART AND BEYOND by Susan Frost and Valerie Kavanaugh
When a group of bored and disconnected students arrive at an art museum for a class field trip, they are surprised to meet up with magic and mayhem. Goats and bears, screams and flowers step out of their paintings and come to life before their very eyes.
A DRAGON IN THE MIX by Sue Ann Gunn
In one large palace, combine a queen, her mother, ladies-in-waiting and assorted princesses. Let simmer. That’s the recipe our four mischievous fairies — Rumor, Gossip, Hearsay and Innuendo — are cooking up in this witty fairy tale spoof.
Support for the Historic Homestake Opera House is provided in part by the City of Lead, and the Adams Mastrovich Family Foundation.
