at the Danceworks Studio Theatre

Within the Labyrinth

ran Saturday, April 28, 2018

at the Danceworks Studio Theatre


To escape their cruel Aunt Marjorie, two sisters discover a world of mystery in a dust-covered attic. With the discovery of an old board game containing a portal to an alternate world, the sisters encounter unearthly adventures that force them to overcome obstacles they could have never imagined. As they continue to travel deeper into this dark world, the creatures become unfathomable and unnerving – and the sisters realize they must bravely search for a passage back to the attic before it’s too late.
