Youth Theatre Northwest presents “Flora & Ulysses” directed by Kathryn Stewart and adapted for the stage by John Glore. A cynic meets an unlikely superhero in a stage version of the popular novel by master storyteller Kate DiCamillo. It begins, as the best superhero stories do, with a tragic accident that has unexpected consequences. The squirrel never saw the vacuum cleaner coming, but self-described cynic Flora Belle Buckman, who has read every issue of the comic book “Terrible Things Can Happen to You!” is just the right person to step in and save him. What neither can predict is that Ulysses (the squirrel) has been born anew, with powers of strength, flight, and misspelled poetry, and that Flora will be changed too, as she discovers the possibility of hope and the promise of a capacious heart. The play is best suited for ages 8+.
