Soft-spoken Ophelia is rather ordinary, but one day she experiences something quite extraordinary.

Two talented and nimble performers use lively storytelling, imaginative puppetry and a beautiful score in this charming and award-winning stage adaptation of the book Ophelia's Shadow Theatre by Michael Ende (Never Ending Story).

When Ophelia stumbles upon a shadow that belongs to no one, she takes the solitary silhouette under her wing. When more shadows arrive, she tucks them into her tiny purse. Soon, unforgettable friendships are forged as Ophelia and her sidekicks share a poignant journey that delights long after the lights dim.
