Based on A WRINKLE IN TIME by Madeleine L’Engle, this adaptation is by Tracy Young. The production is directed and choreographed by Jillian Petrie, TGS Teaching Artist and Company Choreographer.

Join us as we bring Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved novel, A WRINKLE IN TIME from the page to the stage thanks to Tracy Young’s innovative adaptation.  Meg joins forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O’Keefe, and more to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity and find herself.  This production is a full-length play, using dance and movement to help tell the story.

A WRINKLE IN TIME is an all youth production featuring 26 young performers hailing from Hunterdon, Morris, Sussex and Warren counties.  This production is a part of our Studio Presentation Series.  This series initiated in the fall of 2009 has succeeded in engaging both patrons and artists. Targeted for specific-aged audiences rather than the wide-reaching family fare of the Main Stage, the series provides community artists with a unique opportunity to participate in the creative process of “trying out” new, more experimental works under the direction of our professional artists. This program allows our company to both cultivate new talent and challenge audiences.

The Growing Stage – The Children’s Theatre of New Jersey programs are made possible, in part, by funding from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, and contributions from numerous corporations, foundations, and individuals.
