“The Wand Of Dreams” (A Mathematical Fairy Tale) The land of “Happily Ever After”ť is in big trouble. The Wand Of Dreams has been stolen and everything is falling apart! Fairy Godmother or Godfather and the audience have to round up the usual suspects to solve the mystery. Each suspect offers an interesting mathematical problem to solve as the mystery unfolds. You’ll meet a Magic Mirror with a messy cold, a Dirty Rat with some pretty shady friends, a Troll that has traffic backed up for hours, a narcoleptic Sheriff that can’t stay awake long enough to figure anything out, Five Little Piggies with some really big problems, and a Dragon that loves bacon! The show combines hilarious puppets, beautiful animation, spellbinding magic, wonderful music with tremendous audience interaction. The set has big screen animation, lots of magical props and musical instruments. This is our best show yet! Duration: 50 Minute Show. For Ages: Pre-K – 5th Grade. Setup: 1 Hour.

For over thirty years, A Story Ship has offered unique performances and workshops combining technology, animation, puppetry, comedy-theater, magic and music. The show’s sets include a giant video projection system that brings the animation to life. The Story Ship’s Actor and the audience interact with the animation as the stories unfold. With a wonderful array of magic tricks, puppets, musical theater and comedy skits, the audience is drawn away from the animation into a live interactive experience. Our shows and workshops teach common core and STEM standards using the latest technologies including our newest 3D experiences.
