Flora & Ulysses

February 25 – March 26, 2017

A squirrel with superpowers becomes best friends with a 10-year-old girl in this adaptation of Kate DiCamillo’s book.


Can a little squirrel change the human heart? After getting sucked up by a Ulysses 2000x™ vacuum cleaner, a (now hairless) squirrel is rescued by Flora Belle Buckman, a 10-year-old self-proclaimed cynic. She names him Ulysses and discovers he has been reborn a superhero. Indeed, this once average squirrel can suddenly understand Flora, fly, and even write poetry. Together they embark on an adventure full of quirky characters and bursting with heart. 

Based on the bestselling book by Kate DiCamillo (author of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, The Tale of Despereaux, and Because of Winn Dixie).

"The matters of loss, love, trust and fantasy are all addressed in meaningful ways that have the potential to resonate deeply with both children and their parents." – NW Kids

"The show has something for everyone: slow-motion action and hijinks, a story of love, acceptance, bravery and loyalty, and a good dose of humor—both cynical and slapstick." – PDX Parent
