The fairy tale of Hansel and Gretel meets the even grimmer and more fantastical imagination of Kirk Wood Bromley in this enchanting new musical fable. Jessica Grace Wing's haunting, classically flavored music combined with Bromley's Joycean word-tossing is a treat for the theatergoer that is looking for something unique and perfect for the Fall season.

Please note that LOST contains certain language and references that might be considered scary to some children. This production features a cast of 20 professional performers, life-size puppets, and a full musical orchestra.

LOST is the story of Hanlon and Gabby, two teenage siblings abandoned by their father in the Great Smokey Mountains. Stumbling upon a cabin, they are whisked into the world of Mamba, a witch who harvests the organs of children to keep herself alive and young.

Enslaved, Gabby and Hanlon face off with Laborious (Mamba's evil scientist husband), zombie children from 400 years of American History, axe-wielding hoodoos (real ghosts and characters from folklore of the Appalachian region), and the vagaries of young love.
