About the Show:

• Tornadoes!

• Puppets!

• Magic Telescopes!

What do these things have in common?

Mr. Twister and the Tale of Tornado Alley follows the titular character and his grandson Bobby on a journey around the globe - from the chilly arctic to the sizzling warmth of the Gulf of Mexico.

Through the power of his magic telescope, Mr. Twister can see just about everything - except the family reunion of the North and South winds that’s about to create a cyclone in Tornado Alley!!

Join us for an operatic adventure of global proportions.
