New England Youth Theater’s Theater Adventure presents: “THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN”, performed on May 17-19 at 10:30 am at the West Village Meeting House in West Brattleboro. There will also be a special “Sensory Friendly” performance on Wednesday the 17th.

“There once was a Princess whose Father was King over a great country full of mountains and valleys. His palace was very grand and very beautiful, and was built upon a mountain that was full of hollow places underneath: huge caverns and winding ways with long galleries and passages. There were mines there, great deep pits, which had been dug to get at the ore of which the mountains were full. And in these caverns lived Goblins - cunning and mischievous - who derived great delight in pestering the Sun-People who lived in the open-air-story above them…”

The Theatre Adventure Wednesday Troupe brings to life this classic fairy tale, originally written in 1872 by George MacDonald and adapted by Carol Lawson in 1941, and NEYT’s Theatre Adventure in 2011. An ever- present Great Great Grandmother, a doting nursemaid, a devoted King-Papa, a brave and curious miner boy and more join with the courageous Princess Irene in a tale told with shadow work, acting, dancing, singing, and projections.

As a part of a new initiative, to honor audience members with special needs, Theatre Adventure will perform a sensory friendly performance of the production, where vocal expressions and other needs are welcomed as an intrinsic part of being an audience member. At the beginning of the sensory friendly performance, Director Laura Lawson Tucker will give an introduction to help familiarize the audience with theatrical effects such as lights and sounds. There will also be a break room across the hall from the theater for those who need space during the performance, and a social story will be available upon request. “The goal is to provide individuals with special sensory needs the opportunity to attend a performance”, says Lawson Tucker.

Theatre Adventure was founded in 2004 by Darlene Jenson and Laura Lawson Tucker to help teach youth and adults with developmental challenges life, acting, and communication skills as well as promote community through the discipline of theater. Theatre Adventure actors, both with and without disabilities, create theater that turns traditional roles upside down, presenting a fresh take on familiar stories, and challenging audiences to open their thinking about differences.

The Princess and the Goblin performs the Sensory Friendly showing on Wednesday, May 17 at 10:30am, with additional performances on Thursday, May 18, and Friday, May 19, all at 10:30am at the West Village Meeting House, 29 South Street, West Brattleboro. Tickets for these performances are $10 each; discounted group tickets are available upon request.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at www.neyt.org, in person at the NEYT Box Office, or by phone (802) 246-6398 from 12-5pm on Wednesdays.

The West Village Meeting House is an accessible venue, with accommodations for wheelchairs, and all performances will be ASL interpreted.
New England Youth Theatre is supported by Foard Panel, the Vermont Children’s Trust Fund, Vermont Arts Council, and the National Endowment for the Arts.

With innovative artistic vision, Theatre Adventure actors with abilities and disabilities create brave and vibrant theater.
