Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Theater Works presents “Tim O'Toole and the Wee Folk,” a lighthearted Irish tale of magic, greed and revenge based on a children’s book by award-winning author Gerald McDermott. Performances are 10:30 a.m. and noon each Saturday, March 2-23, at the Peoria Center for the Performing Arts, 8355 W. Peoria Ave., in Peoria, Ariz.
Follow Tim—a poor, jobless Irishman—as he meets the Little People, who give him magic gifts to take him out of his poverty. When he loses these gifts through trickery, he teems up with the Wee Folk to regain his treasure. But before he can do so, he must learn an important lesson.
Adapted for the stage by Kyle Olson and directed by Chris Hamby, “Tim O’Toole and the Wee Folk” combines live actors and puppets to create a magical experience for people of all ages. See the show and realize that a bit of good luck is never out of reach—as long as you look for the Wee Folk.
