November brings MIRETTE, Tom Jones, Harvey Schmidt and Elizabeth Diggs’ musical adaptation of Emily McCully’s Caldecott Award winning book MIRETTE ON THE HIGHWIRE. MIRETTE is the story of a gutsy little girl and a mysterious high-wire walker. Mirette is delighted when she discovers her mother’s new boarder is none other than the Great Bellini, whose glorious tightrope-walking days were cut short when he lost his nerve. She convinces the reluctant Bellini to teach her his craft. But when Bellini stages a comeback performance, only to find himself paralyzed with fear, it is Mirette who must climb the wire and help him regain his courage.
