Event Description

The eleventh annual Brucemore Outdoor Children’s Theater will bring to life The Amazing Story Machine, July 24 – 27 at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Arthur the Inventor and his pet mouse, Rusty, will pull audiences out of their seats and take them on adventures of story time favorites, Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and The Lion and the Mouse, during this world premier written by Joe Link and directed by Nathan Nelson. This will be Link’s seventh original production on the Brucemore stage; previous plays include The Incredible Adventures of Captain Spoon, The Forgetful Pirate; The Princess Who Wouldn’t Wear Pink; and Tyrannosaurus Fetch.
