Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter


Cast & Synopsis

6 Characters (3f/3m)

"The result is a show that satisfies the parameters of youth theatre but with a pedigree that transcends its genre…bristles with imagination, wit and pathos that resonate across all generations…an unfettered exuberance that can’t help but charm."   Read on >>

On the night Ronia was born, a thunderstorm raged over the mountain fort where her mother and father and their band of robbers live. Ronia is raised and loved by all of them, but it is in the magic wilds of the forest, with it’s intrigue and woodland creatures, that she truly feels at home. Everything changes when she encounters Birk, the impetuous son of a rival band of robbers. Their tempestuous friendship soon forces Ronia to question her fiery father’s actions-- and to take a stand for her own beliefs.
