    Presented by the College of Fine Arts (The Children’s Performing Arts Series (CPAS))

    “What is ‘Real?’ When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become ‘Real.’” The power of play and childhood fancy, the pure light of unconditional love — these timeless forces illuminate our faithful rendering of Margery Williams’ tale of friendship and the passing of time. A lovely score and detailed period costumes will transport your audience back to the early 20th century where they will experience a particular innocence and wisdom that has much to say about our present culture of instant gratification and disposable friends.
