The Quiltmaker's Gift is a musical comedy about the joy of giving.  It's an ensemble show with comical soldiers, birds, townspeople, and a singing bear.  At turns mystical, hilarious, gently provocative and profound, this intimate musical will delight children and parents alike.  The music is by Craig Gohmler, book by Alan J. Prewitt - based on the children's book by Jeff Brumbeau and Gail deMarcken.

Directed by John Ryan, this lively musical tells the story of a mysterious old woman who lives in the misty mountains, making beautiful quilts for the needy.  Meanwhile, a greedy king is desperate to find happiness from the multitude of gifts he receives daily from his subjects.  He demands a quilt from the old woman, but she refuses to comply, and all his attempts to bully her into complying fail as she receives help through her kindness.  She encourages the king to take his own whimsical journey of self discovery, where he learns how to find his own happiness in the act of giving to others.

The show has a cast of 17 and runs just over an hour, with no intermission.  Local quilters will be displaying their beautiful work in our lobby for your enjoyment.  Please contact Producer Cynthia Brown at (509) 670-8233 for information.
