CLARKSVILLE, TN – Sept. 12, 2019 – A heartwarming tale about the enduring power of love comes to life with “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” Sept. 20-Oct. 5 at Roxy Regional Theatre.
“The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane,” based on the beloved novel by Newbery Award-winning author Kate DiCamillo, opens with the theatre's traditional pay-what-you-can opening night 6 p.m. Sept. 20. All tickets not pre-sold at the regular price will go on sale at 5:30 p.m. that evening for a $5 minimum donation.
Adapted by Dwayne Hartford and directed by Ryan Bowie, “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” features puppetry, music and dancing.
The play follows the adventures of Edward Tulane, an expensive toy rabbit made of china. He is loved by a little girl named Abilene, but the vain and self-centered Edward cares for no one. On an ocean voyage, Edward is accidentally thrown overboard and sinks to the bottom of the sea. So begins his journey.
As years pass, Edward meets many different people in various situations – an older grieving couple, a farmer in need of a scarecrow and a doll mender with an old doll – who teach Edward what it is to love, what it is to lose that love, and how to find the courage to love again.
“The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” is produced in part by Austin's Beauty College and presented through special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.
Performances are 6 p.m. Sept. 20-21, Sept. 27-28 and Oct. 4 with a 2 p.m. show Oct. 5.
