Old Befana - A Magical Holiday Musical!

DeForest Public Library (Community Room)

Celebrate the season with Ken Lonnquist and company's adaptation of the ancient Yuletide tale. It delights audiences with an uplifting and inclusive message of hope for peace.

Hearing that a special child is coming to make the world a better place, Old Befana begins a search which continues to this day during the holiday season. She doesn’t know whether the child she seeks is rich or poor, black or white, a boy or a girl.

“Anyone could be the one to make a better world”, Befana sings. “It could even be... you!” (NOTE: Lonnquist says Old Befana's story is one that people of all religious faiths — or no religious beliefs — can relate to.)

Enjoy this traditional story told through humor, original music, and a fantastic set.
