Synopsis


Aquinas College Theatre Department (Grand Rapids, MI; photo by Andris Visockis, Andris Visockis Photography).

Two young wizard-storytellers compete to become Fantasists—honorable illusionists whose stories come to life. We'll meet a prince, an evil ice queen, a formidable snow lion, a rambunctious sun wolf and the Gnome-Who-Lives-in-a-Lake-but-Doesn't-Know-Why. But as perky Floriad and win-at-all-costs Somnia, forced to work together in their final test, see their tale (hilariously) fall apart, it will take every storytelling twist the acolytes know—and a few smuggled in from their mentors—to get through this ultimate battle of magic and storytelling.
