June 3, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until June 25, 2023

Following the success of last year’s spectacle “Caravan of Dreams,” Ziggurat Theatre Ensemble will present a world premiere fantasy for all ages, THE SAND PRINCESS, set within the captivating landscape of the Desert of Maine in Freeport. It will open on Saturday, June 3 and run Saturdays and Sundays through Sunday, June 25.
THE SAND PRINCESS blends high drama and low comedy as a clever scoundrel threatens the future of an empire in the sand. The show contains magic, masked creatures, and evocative music performed live. The show is produced in conjunction with the Desert of Maine Center for Arts & Ecology.

“We are thrilled to once again create original, outdoor theater against the backdrop of the spectacular Desert of Maine,” says writer/director Stephen Legawiec. “Last year, many of our audience remarked how the desert itself was like a character in the play.” Mela Heestand, Executive Director of Desert of Maine Center for Arts & Ecology, called last year’s event “the highlight of our summer 2022 arts series.”

The ensemble of Maine-based actors includes Mel Angelo, Campbell “Cami” Gibson, Emily Grotz, Dana Legawiec, Dashiell Legawiec, Lyra Legawiec, Rita Micklus, Kathleen Nation, Nate Stephenson and Madelyn Sweet. The show is written and directed by Stephen Legawiec, with original music by Dashiell Legawiec. Movement director is Dana Legawiec. Costumes are by Anne Collins and Robert Velasquez. Masks are by Beckie Kravetz.
THE SAND PRINCESS will be presented outdoors in the Desert of Maine at 6pm on these dates: June 3, 4, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25.
This is an outdoor-show only. Audience is welcome to bring their own chairs or bring a blanket to sit in the sand. Please check our website if rain is forecast. ZigguratTheatre.org More information is available at ZigguratTheatre.org
