Extra-dimensional space travel, gigantic floating brains, and rainbow-Pegasus angel creatures take the stage in Rosebud as Rosebud School of the Arts (RSA) students present an adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's classic work of science fiction, A Wrinkle in Time.


 
The play follows Meg, a girl struggling with her self-worth. "She doesn't know how great she is, but her stubbornness, intelligence and love give her a value greater than any achievement or beauty," says Jeany Snider, director and instructor at RSA. "In fact, she's a role model for young girls. It's long been the case that girls have had to live vicariously through male protagonists, and this is a story where everyone can relate, but girls especially can feel their own struggles through this brave girl."
 
First written in 1963, the Newbery Medal-winning book by L'Engle is a challenging read that has continued to captivate the imaginations of both children and adults. "This show speaks to everyone with a heart," says Snider. "It sounds so cliche, but it's true. It's profound -- this idea that love is bigger than anything in the universe, bigger than planets or stars, or any evil that we face."
