QCT on the Road: Blue Horses: An Imagination Play

While stargazing on a summer night, four young friends, each with their own obstacles to overcome, play a fantastical, imaginative game of “wish upon a star.” Each player tells a story of their heart’s desire as their friends take on roles to help the central character act out their wish – with magical, inspired and heartwarming results. The wishes range from an intergalactic bicycle that rockets to distant planets, to a twin who is “smarter” to help solve the everyday problems of schoolwork, to magical shoes that give a shy young girl the courage to jump in and play. Finally, the friends help solve the struggle of a young artist’s wish to be seen as “normal,” even though she colors her horses blue. As the game goes on, each player’s story helps them understand and assist one another in the trials and tribulations of growing up, gaining self-confidence, and making friends. Audiences of all ages will enjoy the humor and the physical transformations as the actors become fantastic objects, places and people, and the ultimate realization that we all have the magic within us to discover our own unique strengths and talents!
