A US Premiere | September 8 to 30 2018

"...Artistic director Matt Stabile strove to mount a show in the Goldilocks Zone, appealing to children of 7 to 17 and their parents, and their grandparents"
-Bill Hischman, Florida Theatre On Stage

In a mythic countryside in a mountain fort surrounded by wild forest and woodland creatures, young Ronia is raised and loved by her family, who happen to be a band of robbers. Everything changes when she encounters the impetuous son of a rival band of robbers. Their friendship forces Ronia to question her fiery father’s actions— and to take a stand for her own beliefs.

This production was the center-piece of Theatre Lab’s Heckscher Theatre for Families series, providing free writing workshops and live-theatrical experiences to more than 1400 students each year.
