The Adventures of Harold and the Purple Crayon

<< More Events

“One evening, after thinking it over for some time, Harold decided to go for a walk in the moonlight…”

So begins The Adventures of Harold and the Purple Crayon, which follows the zany adventures of an inventive young boy. Resourceful and brave, Harold creates the world he wants to explore using nothing more than a big purple crayon and his sky’s-the-limit imagination.

On March 26, 2023, you’re invited to see Enchantment Theatre Company’s production, which takes you on a wild ride as Harold jets to Mars, joins a circus (he tames a lion!), and rescues a princess in an enchanted castle. Combining life-size puppets, pantomime, dance, magic, and original music, the show will delight and amaze its audiences, from children to grandparents — anyone whose heart is young and adventurous!

Audiences will have a choice of two shows. The 4 pm performance will be sensory-friendly; sensory-friendly performances are designed to create a welcoming and comfortable arts experience for people with autism, sensory sensitivities, or other social, learning, or cognitive disabilities.
