Columbus School for Girls Upper School Theater Department presents East of the Sun, West of the Moon November 8-11, 2012. Watch the preview online. This Norwegian Fairy Tale, written by award winning playwright Tina Howe, is fun for all ages and will appeal to anyone who loves Beauty and the Beast. It is the coming of age story of Tove, a young girl who journeys with a polar bear and sees the wonders of the world. The bear, really a prince who has been cursed by an Evil Troll Princess, is doomed to marry the Princess unless Tove can break the spell. With the help of three hags and four winds, Tove must travel to the end of the world to break the curse, and save her polar bear prince. During her journey, Tove learns the value of keeping her word, as well as the importance of love and her own inner strength.
