A Wrinkle in Time
Emerald Coast Theatre Company | Thursday – Sunday, December 7 – 23
This main stage performance presented by the Emerald Coast Theatre Company features one of literature's most enduring young heroines, Meg Murry. Once again, she's joining forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O'Keefe, and more to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself. In the end, we know two things for sure: Love can overcome evil and there is such a thing as a tesseract. The performance is fun for the whole family. Performances take place at ECTC’s space located upstairs at 560 Grand Boulevard. For ticket information: Emerald Coast Theatre Company.
