Terra Diddle Collective invites the community to be swept away into an enchanting dream world of magic, large puppetry, music and dance. “Phoenix Awakening!”, a magical tale of transformation and renewal, will be presented Friday, Aug. 6 at noon and 6 p.m. at Red Door Barn, 46 John St.

In this drama, a young prince from the land of shadows embarks upon a quest for a beautiful flower maiden who appears to him in a dream. along the way, he is drawn by a golden feather, misguided by a king, rescued by a mermaid, thwarted by a dragon and renewed by a phoenix. The show is well suited for all ages, and suggested donation is $5 to $10.

The current Terra Diddle Collective performers are 12 children, age 8 through 13, who have just completed a two-week transformational theater camp with instructors Kathryn Oliver and Kristi Williamson. The production features story and visuals by Kathryn Oliver; music and choreography by Kristi Williamson; and musical guests Jamie and Toki Oshima

Terra Diddle Collective partners with Waldo Arts Mission, 501 (c) 3 to raise the gap money between class fees and expenses. All donations to the event will go towards the goal of meeting a $1,000 matching grant, which makes the running of the camp and performance possible.

Seating is limited. Parking is across the street, at the American Legion Hall on Pearl Street. For more information, call Williamson at 975-5567; send e-mail to kathryn@kathrynoliver.com; or visit terradiddlecollective.com.
