A fantasy by Aurand Harris, this adaptation by Monica Ballard blends captivating music and lyrical rhyme bringing the you closer to the kingdom of familiar fairies. The story centers around how Shakespeare’s Puck was challenged by King Oberon to prove his mischief by playing tricks on Queen Titania and two wandering rustics, one of whom ends up looking like an ass!
