Riffing on The Wizard of Oz but based in Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a magical adventure with a lot of heart. It's the story of Minli, the daughter of poor farmers who barely scrape by. Inspired by her father's tales and a magic goldfish, Minli sets off to find the Old Man of the Moon and learn the secret of good fortune. Along the way she encounters royalty, dragons and fantastic stories, and through them she learns what good fortune really means. Based on the 2010 Newbery Honors book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a beautifully-told fantasy that will keep kids entranced as they join Minli on her journey. Learn More

As usual, Wheelock's production of The Miracle Worker was 'up to par' with the high standards shown in all this season's productions. Acting, sets and all the production values were 'top notch'. I'm continually impressed by the company's presentation and their NOT 'dumbing down' productions for their young audience. And, as such, they're as enjoyable for the adult audience, as well.
Running time is 2 hours and 15 minutes. It is recommended for ages 9 and up.
Imagine yourself imprisoned in a foreign land where no one speaks your language, you understand no one, and everyone assumes you are stupid, possessed, or insane. Imagine your rage, imagine your frustration, imagine your inability to communicate your feelings in any other way than to lash out at those who carry on with their lives around you, oblivious to you. The Miracle Worker is a remarkable tale of strength, courage, dedication, and love. It is a triumphant ode to human spirit and potential. Most of all, this play by William Gibson is a celebration of a child's rebirth into the world around her.
