Tomie Depaola’s Strega Nona

Representing the 1970’s | Performed by CTC Youth in the Circle Theatre

A combination of three of Tomie dePaola’s beloved tales, Strega Nona features an Italian sorceress, Strega Nona, who decides to teach the local baker’s daughter magic. When Strega Nona’s bumbling, knock-kneed helper, Big Anthony, also wants to learn magic, he disguises himself and tries to use Strega Nona’s magic book, magic ring, and magic pasta pot with hilarious and disastrous results! (Appropriate for all audiences)
