    Maas Theater & Dance - EGG-tion HERO (ages 3+)
    Double bill with Simone de Jong Company - Hermit
    Two mimes watch over EGG-tion HERO. With minimal tools and a lot of garden-variety magic they make themselves, each other and the egg vanish into thin air. Definitely dangerous, so don’t try this at home!
