Riddlesbrood Touring Theatre Company
Brings their Fantasy AdventureFest back to Historic Smithville
Featuring the Premier of their original, comedic musical
“Peter Pan and the Pirates”
An exciting, new way of presenting live theater will be rolling into Historic Smithville again this spring! The premier of “Riddlesbrood’s Peter Pan and the Pirates”, an original, rollicking, musical adaptation of James Matthew Barrie’s, nonsensical novel, ‘Peter Pan”, by Riddlesbrood Touring Theatre Company, will be the featured free outdoor attraction at their annual 2-day Fantasy AdventureFest that will return to Historic Smithville on Saturday, May 27th and Sunday, May 28th. Rain or shine! https://www.riddlesbrood.com/fantasyadventurefest
Presented on Riddlesbrood’s portable, main stage, along with 2 other stages set up on the Village Green in the heart of the Village of Smithville, 615 E. Moss Mill Road, Absecon, NJ 08201, the show will have matinee performances at 1 PM and 5 PM on Saturday and at 1 PM on Sunday. A variety of vendors with fantasy and adventure themed art, artistry and collectibles will add to the festivities. Admission and parking are free both days.
Before the main stage shows, Riddlesbrood is offering children an opportunity to have “Tea with Alice” (seatings at 10 AM and 11:30 AM on Saturday and Sunday) They’ll be greeted by an attentive Alice and the wild and fun-loving Mad Hatter before they watch a special live children’s show that includes a puppet show, get their face painted, and enjoy hot or cold tea and sweet treats in an outdoor ‘Tea Party” setting next to the stage. Tickets are $20. Reservations are suggested: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/teatime-with-alice-2023-tickets-519749704357
Tea Times: Sat & Sunday… 11 am and 12:30 pm
Actors from the Riddlesbrood Touring Theatre Troupe, along with local actors of all ages from the Delaware Valley, will also perform a few short fantasy stories throughout the village for the children! A family-friendly, comical, inter-active exploration of the fantasy world filled with their trademark banter and improvisation that guarantees a rollicking good time for audiences of all ages.
