Beginning today, Quest Theaterworks will present “A Faery Hunt: The Missing Faery Light.” The interactive, outdoor theatrical adventure takes children and their families on a quest with Auntie Angelika around a beautiful forest in search of faeries and help solve the mystery of the faerie queen’s missing faery light.
Staged outdoors, participants meet at the Bear Yuba Land Trust’s Burton Homestead in Nevada City.
The original tale carries simple, life-affirming messages, including the importance of loving kindness, forgiveness, respect for nature and tolerance, and serves as a reminder to have fun, according to Quest Theaterworks website.
In a gentle and fun way, the audience actually becomes part of the story. The shows are for children, their families and the young-at-heart who can join the Faery Folk on a quest for the Faery Royalty to find “The Missing Faery Light.”
Today’s show is already sold out, but tickets are available for the 2 p.m. Faery Hunt Sunday. The quest continues June 8, 9 and 23. All performances begin at 2. Those attending the Faery Hunt are encouraged to dress as a faery or magical creative but it’s not required.
Quest Theaterworks asks people to arrive 15 minutes prior to show time.
Good walking shoes, a hat and sunscreen are also highly recommended. The performance is approximately one hour in length and will cover a mostly flat, quarter-mile trail with mild inclines.
Advance tickets are $10 for children 2 to 12 years old and $5 for adults and teens. All tickets are $2 more at the door.
The Burton Homestead, used with permission from the Maidu People, is at 16200 Lake Vera Purdon Road in Nevada City.
