Steven Dietz' fantasy chronicles a young girl's quest to regain her memory, assisted by the beautiful young Anabel Lee and the 11-year-old Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Dietz offers a challenging story line, throwing in allegorical elements and cultural references that may have more immediate meaning for adult theatergoers than their children. Yet his scene-setting is compelling--the strange world of Nocturno--and the presence of an especially appealing heroine ensures that younger viewers will be engaged to the play's magical end. Scot Copeland directs the new Nashville Children's Theatre production, which stars Lisa Kimmey Winans. NCT hosts a Spring Festival on May 2 to help kick-off the new production's three-week run. The free outdoors event for families features contributions from various local organizations, including The Frist Center, Wishing Chair Productions, Howard Pink and his Musical Garden Hoses and Nashville Symphony.
