Whidbey Children's Theater has announced the 2012-2013 production slate, the "Season of Magic and Enchantment."
"All of our productions across the age groups this year celebrate the enthralling worlds of fantasy and sorcery," WCT Artistic Director Rose Woods said. "In addition, each of our shows reveals the special heart, soul, and spirit of the very real people at the core of each of these magic tales and enchanted worlds."
The announcement was made as the centerpiece of "Raise the Curtain," an old-fashioned "Ice Cream Social," where more than 200 local families, friends, and supporters of the venerable WCT gathered in the theater lobby of the Porter Building on Anthes Avenue in downtown Langley.
