A new adventure inspired by the legends of Egypt, playwright John Olive creates a mystical mystery that will have audiences on the edge of their seats. The mysterious Zalira (Marlene Ginader) and the sneeze-afflicted palace scribe, Bakneb (Parnelli Parnes), must aid the young and spoiled Pharaoh Serket (Alex Rose) if he is to escape death at the hands of his ever-present enemies. Together they journey deep into the desert to find the Lost Stone of Fire, a gem so mystical it is believed to grant its owner immortality. However, Serket’s quest brings him a treasure even greater.

Director Mike Stack shares that he is “grateful to have the opportunity to explore this unique adventure tale for young people, set against the backdrop of one of the world’s most fascinating and enduring civilizations. It is especially exciting to be working with such a talented and diverse group of artists to bring this story to life.”
This production will feature the work of an award-winning creative team: Director Mike Stack, Sound Designer & Composer Jeff Tymoschuk, Set Designer Al Frisk, Costume Designer Yulia Shtern, Lighting Designer Jeff Harrison and Fight Director Nick Harrison.
