Poet-trees, composer mice, and singing brooks – experience the rustic world of Opal Whitely. This magical journey of music, story, and puppetry honors nature’s miracles, tragedies and transcendence … all inspired by the 1920s diary of a young Opal Whitely.
A Mock Turtle Marionette Theater Company and Anne Hills production, The Morningtime of Now features Mock Turtle founder Doug Roysdon’s puppets, songs written by Tony Award-winning songwriter Michael Smith using words taken from Opal’s diary, incidental music by multi-instrumentalist Jay Ansill, and new original stories (and vocals) by Anne Hills.
