The Borrowers
By MARY NORTON, adapted for the stage by CHARLES WAY
Directed by WHIT MACLAUGHLIN
On the F. Otto Haas Stage
December 1, 2010 - January 30, 2011

Meet Arrietty. She’s your typical tween yearning to experience the grown-up world. Only difference? She and her tiny family live on doll house furniture under the floorboards. When their home is discovered, they are forced into the giant universe outside and Arrietty gets a bigger adventure than she bargained for.

Most enjoyed by families with children ages 5 and older.

Parents are Saying–

“I was particularly pleased with the multi-cultural cast of characters...A diverse cast really lends itself to the underlying theme of the story: trying to find your place in a world that's not your own. My 5 year old daughter was engaged ... which prompted her to ask questions, care about the characters, wonder how it all works, all while hearing a positive message.” –Raising Global Kids [Read More]
[Listen to this parent discuss the play with her daughter.]

“To say we loved it would be an understatement! I want to go back and watch it again, I loved every second of it!!!”
–DelcoPAMoms [Read More]

“The acting was great and the story-line was captivating.  The best part was the curiosity that followed… truly a wonderful way to introduce your child to the live arts”
