Della Clementine’s Guide to Getting Lost
May 14, 19, 20 & 21
Using theater, circus, dance and song, Echo Theater’s teen ensemble brings to life the story of a child lost in the forest. When Della adventures alone into the forest, her journey illuminates the wonders and dangers of nature as well as the possibilities of joyful connection. Squirrels on trapeze, contortionist spiders, and tap dancing fish accompany young Della on her journey. When her exploration takes a dangerous turn, Della relies on creativity and collaboration to find home.
Della Clementine’s Guide to Getting Lost was created and performed by Echo Theater’s teen ensemble, the Zig Zags, in Spring 2022 and has been remounted due to popular demand. Join us for this original ensemble show, created by teens for audiences of all ages.
