The Tale of Despereaux
About The Tale of Despereaux
A musical adventure awaits you this holiday season when the acclaimed PigPen Theatre Co. brings its inventive and imaginative retelling of Kate DiCamillo's beloved, Newbery Medal-winning modern fable to Berkeley Rep. The courageous Despereaux, shunned by his community for his love of stories and humans, shows a forlorn kingdom that even the smallest voice can change the world — and that it only takes a little light to reveal the truth.
An indie folk band that creates dazzling works of theatre, PigPen infuses this tale of bravery, forgiveness, and redemption with their masterful music, stunning stage effects, and witty performances. PigPen’s "The Tale of Despereaux" is a spellbinding musical treat that resonates with adults and children alike.
Based on the novel by Kate DiCamillo and the Universal Pictures animated film.
