Live shows of classic tales set in the Wizarding World featuring puppetry fabricated by Emmy-award-winning designer Michael Curry.

Description:
This stage show features a troupe of four from the Wizarding Academy of Dramatic Arts who have set up to perform a trunk show using stylized scenic pieces, props and puppetry fabricated by Emmy-award-winning designer Michael Curry. The performers retell two of the famed tales of Beedle the Bard, a 15th-century author of wizarding fairytales, including "The Fountain of Fair Fortune" and "The Tale of the Three Brothers."

Helpful Tip:
The story to be told is selected "randomly" at start of the show. If you see two shows in a row you should be guaranteed to see both stories.
