The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

April 2-24, 2016

With a simple set, live musicians, and a tender story, Kate DiCamillo’s bestseller comes alive in a memorable stage experience.




Tossed overboard, stuck in a hobo’s knapsack, and used as a scarecrow, a vain rabbit doll named Edward unexpectedly undertakes a perilous 20-year journey. Along the way, he sheds his arrogance, and his heart grows bigger and softer as he discovers the importance of people, friendship, and love.

By bestselling author Kate DiCamillo (Flora & Ulysses, The Tale of Desperaux, Because of Winn-Dixie)!
A 2015 Oregon Battle of the Books Selection!
