The Aurora Fox presents “Red Ranger Came Calling”

In this musical retelling of the story his late father related every Christmas Eve, Berkeley Breathed introduces a cynical boy (self-named The Red Ranger of Mars) who meets his match in a retired Santa. On Christmas morning, in the soggy Pacific Northwest, hoping against hope for a Buck Tweed bicycle, Red finds instead a treasure unlooked for, within himself. While Breathed, author/artist of the cartoon strip “Bloom County,” often winks at the adults in the audience, this fabulous tale will fascinate children of all ages. Tickets are $12 child, $20 senior, $24 adult. Ticket packages are also available.
