Inside a magical traveling theater tent, a storyteller shares an enchanting and timeless tale. Cheeseboy's home planet has been reduced to a bubbling fondue. Where are his parents? How did he become marooned on earth? Wondrous, funny, and achingly familiar, Cheeseboy’s journey leads him toward a new life filled with independence and new possibilities. Utilizing magic lantern–style shadow puppetry and ingenious “treasure boxes,” this poignant performance will touch young and old alike.
