Including one of Shakespeare’s most famous and funny stage directions, “’Exit, pursued by a bear,” The Winter’s Tale is a romance, a comedy, and a fairy tale that has entertained audiences for 400 years.

The story begins in Sicilia where the king accuses his wife of having an affair with his childhood friend. As his unfounded jealousy consumes him, he puts his wife on trial and abandons their newborn girl, Perdita, in the wild. But as with all fairy tales, the child survives and, now living in Bohemia, she blossoms into a free-spirited young woman. It’s there that she meets and falls in love with a young man who may just be the son to her father’s former friend. In a magical twist that must be seen to be believed, she might just find the homecoming she’d never expected.
