    The Morningtime of Now

    An original puppet play based on the diary of Opal Whiteley with original music by Michael Smith.

    With Anne Hills, Kayla Prestel, Jay Ansill and the 20013-14 Touchstone Theatre Apprentices.

    Puppetry and direction by Doug Roysdon of Mock Turtle Marionette Theatre

    In 1920, America was enthralled by the nature writings of a precocious six-year-old girl. Her name was Opal Whiteley. Nearly 100 years later, with her stories captured in puppetry and her poetry in song, Opal takes us to a transformative place —— The Blue Hills.

    A play, for adults and children alike, our journey is brought to life with some 30 puppets created by Mock Turtle Marionette Theater.

    “Now I sit here and I print. The wind comes creeping in under the door. It calls to me to come go exploring. It sings of the things that are to be found under leaves. It whispers the dreams of the tall fir trees. I hear all the voices calling me. I listen. ” – Opal Whiteley
