2021 IMPACT Shows:

July 5 – 10
Little Red must make an important delivery to her Granny who is sick in bed, but that will require going over the river and through the woods. As long as she follows Mother’s directions and heeds the warning of three little previous victims, then it should be nothing more than a howling good time!

July 12 – 17
A young Princess must escape the clutches of her stepmother, the evil Queen, who will not rest until she is the fairest of them all. With a little help from a not-so-little Dwarf, she begins her new life away from the castle, but the Queen might have a few more tricks up her sleeve!

July 19 – 24

Marta befriends a reluctant Dragon who was recently discovered living in a nearby cave. When the infamous Dragon Slayer, St. George, is summoned to destroy the beast, Marta must do everything in her power to teach the town that one cannot judge a book by its cover … or a dragon by its scales!

In a magic kingdom where good and bad fairies roam, the prick of a spinning wheel needle sets off a curse that puts the entire kingdom to sleep. With the help of a good fairy, only a brave Prince can defeat evil and wake the Princess from her sleepy kingdom.
