Olympia Family Theater: How the Slug Stole Solstice

2014-11-28 to 2014-12-21

More Info

Location: Olympia Family Theater 612 4th Ave E Olympia, WA 98501

Cost: Adult: $19 Student/Sr/Military: $16 Youth (12 & under): $13

Turning a ‘soon to become’ holiday classic upside-down, How the Slug Stole Solstice is alternative fare for those who may or may not celebrate traditional Christmas or Hanukkah. In this delightfully wacky multi-generational comedy (written in Seuss-like rhyme), a giant banana slug named Sally, accompanied by three hand-picked thugs, must battle her fear of the dark to make a journey through the spookiest of forests to stop Winter Solstice, and bring back the sun earlier than scheduled. As told around a campfire by Grampa Joe to his granddaughters Cricket and Boo, the story of Sally’s adventures with a scary forest witch and an intellectual bumblebee (among many others) leads Boo to her own magical understanding of conquering one’s fears.
