Synopsis: Play based on a Russian Folk Tale by the English author David Foxton. A tale of a thrilling and amusing chase to catch the fabulous Firebird and release her from the wicked Czar. Cast of 4 women and 15 men (with doubling) plus opportunity for extras. Costumes: Russian Folk style. Setting: three specific sets plus a common area to all.
A puppeteer and his assistant begin their performance of "Ivan and the Firebird" but switch to using the full stage when it becomes apparent that the puppets are too small for the audience to appreciate. Czar Vyslav, nagged incessantly by his wife over their country's shortcomings, is overjoyed when his gardener, Simeon, produces an apple tree bearing golden fruit. Before he can use this "miracle" to his country's good the golden apples are stolen by the Firebird. Vyslav's three sons undertake to retrieve the apples, and the victor is promised that he will be heir to the throne. Their adventures are chronicled by the puppeteer, who controls the action of the play throughout, frequently "freezing" the performers to change the course of the storyline. An action-filled play with considerable opportunities for audience involvement and participation.
